Oldness

The last few days I have come to this shocking revelation: I am getting old. Here is a small sampling of the evidence redneck style...
YOU KNOW YOU'RE GETTING OLD
** when you don't cry when you get your hair chopped off several inches by a non-professional. (so my sis convinced me she had watched enough you-tube videos on hair cutting to know what she was doing. Not quite convinced, but you can't beat a free haircut!)

** when you about pass out from playing 4 straight tennis games. And you kindof want to throw up at the end.

** when you are chaperoning the YM/YW indexing party that is supposed to go until midnight and you are silently praying the whole time that the kids will just beg to go home early. And of course they don't so you take your anger out by beating a poor deacon soundly at air hockey.

**when you actually enjoy Women's Conf. and General Conf. and not just because you can watch them in your jammies.

I'm sure there are more reasons, but that might involve too much introspection and I said I was getting old, not mature!

I guess I am not old yet because I still struggle to enjoy womens conference and general conference.

Honey, you can't blame your lack of tennis prowess on old age. You either got it or you don't.
And that trust thing you have with me? It's not due to lack of wisdom as you get older, but it's due to the beautiful creature you become after each and every haircut I bestow upon you.

Meg... so where is a picture of this new hair cut?? I bet you look cute! I too realized I was OLD this month! When you watch you little boy pass the sacrament and your baby gets baptized... You know you are old!
Oh yeah, and my sister came to visit for a week; with her 5 week old baby who was up every few hours! I thought it was going to kill me! So I guess that would mean I am ancient!

I officially hit "old" awhile back... "ancient" is creeping up - but "mature" is nowhere to be seen :)

I need a haircut... I'd better take care of that before we visit eh???

You're getting a little more on the mature side with that last one.
But, I have to agree. It gets better every session-- Can you just hear my voice getting old and croaky.
Wow--cc. is taking on haircutting of the older sis? You are both brave. You might as well let her paint your cabinets too.

Nobody should let me ever cut their hair again. I gave Big T a hair cut over conference weekend and I buzzed the wrong spot. Needless to say his hair is shorter than it has ever been. Good for CC for expanding her horizons and self-taught beauty school.

I'm feeling old too. Turning 30 is not a nice thing. By the way, I think your hair looks cute.

who you playin' tennis with?? I'm so jealous I wasn't invited!!!!!! and you always have this fond thought that I'll always be OLDER than you. did that make your day?

big8smiley said...

Wow, you ARE old! LOL

I can't believe you let your sister cut your hair, I wouldn't dare! It looks cute on you though.

I actually don't think you are old, even after all of your "reasons", because if you are old, I have to also admit I am old.

what do you mean you enjoy conference? but not an indexing party? who are you? and why, why, why do you still let cc play with your hair??? apparently it looks good, though, so i'm glad about that. i wish i could say the same for mine...
