Old

There are many reasons lately that I feel old:

  • I will soon be 28 – I remember my sister-in-law starting to say “I’m almost 30!” as if it were the end of the world when she was 28.  PS, now she is in her 30s and says it isn’t all that bad after all…just the anticipation of it.
  • I keep getting e-mails about my 10 year high school reunion…surely they’re sending them to the wrong person –  NO WAY have I been out of high school for 10 years already.
  • I was just tagged in a photo of college friends with the caption “10 years older than the first time we met”.  Then I found old pictures of us to compare.

  • I work with youth, who never fail to remind me how old I am and how out of date I am already.
  • I saw a picture of a Victoria Secret model, and my first thought was, “She’s only 15- put some clothes on her!”
  • I see teenagers driving and serving as waiters and I always think they’re not old enough to do that.
  • I’m a minister?!
  • I’ve been married for 5.5 years?!
  • I AM A MOM – DUDE!?

Make it stop.

PS: lest you think I forgot about Sarah, after going through old pics – there is more scanner fun in the future – perhaps a whole post dedicated to the life and work of the infamous Sweet Suite.  Look out facebookers – I think there is a lot of scanner/tagging fun ahead of me.  and you.  Oh what wonderful photos there were before digital camera – they must be shared with the world.

  1. The quality of the pictures definitely gets better with each one! Now if I can just get back down to college size…is that too ambitious?
