As I Get Older, I Realize:

 #1  — I talk to myself, because there are times I need expert advice. 

#2  —  I consider “On Trend” to be the clothes that still fit.

#3  —  I don’t need anger management. I need people to stop ticking me off.

#4  —  The  biggest lie I tell myself is, “I don’t need to write that down.  I’ll  remember it.”

#5  —  I have days when my life is just a tent away from a circus.

#6  —  These days, “On time” is when I get there.

#7  —  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes, then come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller?

#8  —  Lately, I’ve noticed people my age are so much older than me.

#9  —  “Getting lucky” means walking into a room and remembering why I’m there.

#10  —  When I was a child, I thought nap time was punishment. Now it feels like a mini vacation.

#11  —  Some days I have no idea what I’m doing out of bed.

#12  —  I  thought growing old would take longer.

#13  —  Aging sure has slowed me down, but it hasn’t shut me up.

#14  —  I still haven’t learned to act my age.


And remember… Youth is a gift of nature.  Age is a work of art.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
