I had an epiphany this morning. I was talking to the girls in the van on the way to take Lilly to school about what they want to do tonight. Heath is going to his weekly game night with "The Geek Squad" at a pal's house so he won't be home. I asked the kids if there was anywhere they wanted to go out to eat that we haven't been in a while.
Lilly told me she wants to go to Steak N Shake. I said " No, I can't afford that... calorically." Then, I told her that it is not an easy place to get in and out of OR in a good area of town. I said that it's not a place I want to go on a Friday night without Daddy....she was puzzled and asked why.
I told her that Clayton county ( the county I grew up in and graduated from HS in) was going downhill and there was a lot of gang activity now. It is the next county over from where we live in Georgia. I told her that when we lived there it was an okay county and had not gotten bad yet.. then, I said that was 19 years ago....
WHAT!?!?!?! It's been 19 years since I graduated HS???? HOLY CRAP! I'M OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yep- that was my morning epiphany- I AM OLD. Where did the time go? My older SIL always told me that after you hit 21, it goes downhill from there ( as in time goes by much faster). I never believed her...but, gosh...where did the last 16 years go since I was 21? Heck, where did the last 19 years go since I graduated HS? Time does go by so quickly....hard to believe that my 20th reunion will be next year.
