Things That Make Me Feel Old

Here's a list of things that are making me feel old lately.
Going to the grocery store and getting annoyed by the kids with the wheelie shoes. "Where are their parents, and why do they let their kids by wheelie shoes and fly around the store like maniacs?" I ask. That sounds like something an old man would say.
Teaching Sunday School and talking about when President Hinckley was called as the prophet. Do any of the kids remember that? "No, I was like 5." I was a sophomore in high school. Grrrrr.
I'll glance at my picture id at work from time to time and realize that my forehead looks quite large compared to other people's. Why? Because other people have hair.
Kobe Bryant is the same age as me, and people are starting to say that he has a lot of miles on him.
I get sleeping related injuries. Peyton slept on top of me the other night and I ended up with a pinched nerve in my back. If I don't roll over enough times during the night one of my shoulders will end up sore. When I get out of bed in the morning, every joint in my arms and legs pops. It's just sad that I can get hurt while sleeping.
I have four kids, a mortgage, and a minivan. How the heck did that happen?
Until recently, I thought Bluetooth was a Harry Potter character.

Geez, I'm glad I'm not old. Doesn't sound like fun to me... :)

Is that why when I mention princess Adora is the name of She-ra, who is He-man's twin sister I get blank "who's He-man" stares?

Sami said...

Yup. I'm here to tell you right now that you are old too, Mandy. But, Cameron will always be older than all of us!

Our kids will know who He-Man is eventually. It's only a matter of time before they make a stupid He-Man movie.

Dude I've got a whole set of He-Man DVDs if you need to get your kids indoctrinated.

I still had my Snake Mountain and Castle Greyskull until this past move. I think I still have all my guys in a box somewhere. I may have to indoctrinate the boys sometime.
