did i just get old?

uh-oh.
i just thought to myself, 'turn that noise down' when a harsh-sounding song came on. then i proceeded to turn it down in a very irritated manner.
plus i have two simultaneous, completely opposite health issues going on, and i'm fairly certain that wasn't supposed to happen yet.
i squint when i read even though i have somewhat good vision.
i avoid ultra-cheap beer.
i have to think how to spell, 'yes' for 15 minutes.
then i mispell it.
i can't eat dairy products like i used to.
hanging out with my Parents is a good thing.
i'm somewhat forgetful.
i'm somewhat forgetful.
i shout at my tv screen during 'the price is right'.
i watch the price is right.
i shake my head and say in awe, 'where DID the time go?'
i call people, 'dear'.
i check for gray hair and fine lines and (oh, my ) i
think i found my first fine line.
the music from my earlier years isn't so bad anymore.
when someone calls and wants to go somewhere, i'm like, 'noooo, i'm too tired to go out.'
oh, no......

tee-hee, somewhat joking, here, guys, but i just realized i'm not as young as i used to be. wait a minute, no, i'm not joking too much at all. and i'm only 24.
wow.

Yes it happens!! The big handbag filled with who knows what that i vowed I would never have is now on my shoulder! When we go into clothes shops my daughter likes I am irritated by the loud music and the fact the sales girls all look like anorexic 16year olds! I have had high blood pressure since my late 20s and had kidney stones twice in my 20s when everyone kept saying "Gosh you're young to have that"
Luvs just wait til you hit 38 like me and suddenly you realise you are your mother more and more but you are actually proud. I don't feel old I feel wiser and more experienced.

well, at least there's some comfort in that saying, tee-hee. i still shop at those kind of stores and look like an anorexic 16-year-old.
