Evidence of Age

Remember how I turned 29 and now I feel old? Well, it's like someone heard and decided it was time to bring on the signs of aging
  • I mentioned that I'd like to see fireflies because I'd never seen them before, and then Sabrina reminded me that I actually had seen fireflies. But wait, you want to know the worst part? Even after she said that, I have no recollection of this event! None of this, "Oh, now that you say it, I do remember that." I've been racking my brain the last few days trying to think of when we would have seen them, and I'm coming up blank. This was only. . . 10 years ago.
  • 10 YEARS AGO?! Events in my adult life took place 10 years ago?! Ack!
  • I made Kielbasa and Cabbage last night. And I liked the cabbage. In fact, I might even say that I loved the cabbage. More than the bacon. Who likes cabbage more than bacon? Look at me, all grown up and enjoying my vegetables. (Also, I think that might have been the first time I cooked bacon all by myself. Maybe. Or maybe that is another lost memory.)
  • My favorite thing to listen to on the radio is NPR. That's not anything new. But it's evidence, nonetheless.
Ok, now that I list them, it doesn't seem so bad. Mostly I'm just bothered that my memory is failing me. Time to do more crossword puzzles. Maybe I should add "complete a Sunday New York Times Crossword" to my bucket list. HA! Yeah right! Like I could get that good in just 1 year!

I am sorry to make you feel old. I forget everything. I think the details of that trip may have been more poignant for me than you though because of a certain member of our group (rolling my eyes). Maybe I can jog your memory of them. We saw them while walking along the highway on the way to Walmart. Yes, that same highway where Kim fell into the road tripping over nothing. Ha! Anyway, I remember claiming fireflies bite, but I was countered that they don't. Yes, I told you, many details of that trip still live on in my mind.

I don't know if this will make you feel any better, but I tend to blame my loss of memory on having kids rather than on age. And the pregnancy and newborn stages are usually the worst for my brain. Anyway, probably doesn't help much; the memories are still faded, but at least it's something more productive than just getting older. :-)

I think I remember that I love NPR too! (But of course I AM old!)
