10 Things we do when we get older

1.Repeat , repeat , repeat
We can be sitting around telling stories and repeat the same story at least twice just to make sure everyone heard it. Plus we think it's hilarious so why not tell it again? Note: It also helps when you are surrounded by other older persons as you won't feel as stupid because chance are they forgot it as soon as you told it.

2.  Saying WHAT alot because you were daydreaming or simply didn't hear what they were saying.  I find this especially true with our children  as I try and tune them out as much as possible with the constant nagging wants and demands.

3. Riding in the car with no radio on. We did this today actually and were at a light when we hear rap music. I looked at my husband he looked at me , we looked at our phones and then the radio , then back at ourselves again wondering where this music was coming from and thinking our kid messed with our ringers.We rolled down the window and heard the guy across the light from us with his music blasting.  Lol I never felt more old than that moment.

4. Timing our evening so we can be home in bed by 9. I did this the other night with friends, actually we all did. We looked at our watches and at 7:30 decided happy hour as over and we needed to get home to rest. So different from the twenties years.

5. Waking up at 5 or 6 with no alarm. Well since we are in bed at 9 our internal clocks say it's  5 am sunshine! Get the fuck up! Cockadoodledoo

6. Complaining about the TCU crowds. "Those damn kids acting like fools." No one wants to be around them that's why we're in bed by 9.

7. Taking more meds than Phillip Seymour Hoffman. ..yeah I went there.  When you find yourself popping vitamins ,supplements and prescription drugs, then it's time to own up to your age.

8.Nap time is a blessing.  Don't you find it funny when we were kids how we hated nap time but now that we're older it's a welcome blessing.

9. You say things like I can't do that doctors orders. Example  "I'd really love to pop a Viagra so I could tap that but Dr's orders are a no go cause it conflicts with by blood pressure meds." Lol

10. You say I can't eat that cause it will give me indigestion.
When you're eyeballing that pastrami or pepperoni or cucumbers but know if you eat it you're gonna pay later , then you pretty much are old now.;-)
