The Older I Get.....

I'm not yet made over, but my HTML issues have been fixed I am told by the woman doing the makeover (I love her for that). Since my posting fingers are getting a little twitchy I decided to revisit some posts from long ago before even I was reading what I posted. When I went back and actually read it, I kind of liked this one.

The older I get.....the less I like to shave my legs.

The older I get.....the more I'm afraid there are a lot of things that I'll never be really grown up about.

The older I get.....the more I both wish I could have and am afraid of having plastic surgery.

The older I get.....the more I wish I had done a better job of keeping up with people I was good friends with in the past.

The older I get.....the more I need to exercise and the less I like to exercise (or I guess these days you have to say work out).

The older I get.....the faster time goes. I know that is a cliche, but it is so, so true (except for some days between 2 and 4:30 in the afternoon at work).

The older I get.....the less I like the word "retirement". I'm all in favor of not having to go to work anymore, but no so good with calling my self "retired".

The older I get.....the more I wonder what I would look like if I quit coloring my hair...and how I would do that without spending many months looking like a skunk.

The older I get.....the more I realize that being older doesn't necessarily mean being wiser.

The older I get.....the more I wonder how my grandchildren will remember me.

The older I get.....the harder it is to know if certain clothes are "appropriate" for "someone my age" to wear. Okay, I don't worry too much about that, but I do think about it and am pretty much done with sleeveless. (and I can hardly even mention swimsuits)

The older I get.....the older everyone else is getting right along with me and I am grateful for that.


  1. Every morning I look in the mirror and wonder why my Mom is staring back at me. Can't wait to see what you've done with the place...fingers crossed for a quick resolution to all your bloggy troubles!

  2. HURRAH!!! You've fixed all your HTML problems. I thank you for being a loyal blogger friend and agree with time going faster as we get older. This is why I love to experience new places and countries as that seems to slow down time. Happy New Year and stay enthusiastic. I can motivate you with the gym, as I used to be a personal trainer and love to lift weights. The benefits are tremendous as far as uplifting my mood. Happy 2010. Your friend, Sonia.

  3. Love this idea!

    The older I get...., the younger "kids" in their teens and twenties look.

    Happy New Year!

  4. I'm getting older right along side you :-)

    Happy 2010


  5. LOL! And so true... time really does get faster - maybe that's why my legs are so hairy... No time to wax them in my new speedy time warp...

  6. Yeah! No more html, when I visit! :)
    I love this post, it is full of truths!
    Thanks for being such a good friend and I hope we will continue this friendship as we get older together!

  7. PS: We're having a little fun over at my place today. I'd love it if you dropped by...

    Definitely Not a Snow Job

  8. Great work. Glad you're up and running.

  9. I just love your quote: "The Older I Get...The Beter I Was." It cracked me up and I so agree with it. I't right where I am in life too. I just popped over from seeing your comment on Autumn's blog. I think I will follow your blog for more joyful therapy.

    Is this your own quote or can you tell me who is the author?

  10. What a great post! I've been wanting to let me hair go grey as well but since my kids are still pretty young, I'd get even more questions about being their grandmother!

  12. I loved this post too!
    The older I get the more I don't give a sh*t what others think about me! I have had plastic surgery... but don't think I can do it again... I now have 'bleeding' issues.. nearly died after my last surgery! (Hysterectomy)... so I shall have to live with me wrinkles!

  13. I'm doin' my little happy dance here for your HTML fix! Woohoo!

    We will all grow older, better and wiser together!

    Have a fantastically blessed day!!!

  14. Hi Jeanie, I identify with every one of your "The older I gets" except I've already tested my looks with gray hair. I'm not saying I love it, but I accept it as okay if I keep my hair very short. Although...I'm sometimes tempted have it "frosted" in bright red.

  15. The older I get the more comfortable I am with me. And I do not like shaving my legs and having to be grown up all the time.

  16. YEAH your back!!! This was a funny post. the older I get the faster Christmas comes around last year it took 15 minutes.
