40ish and beyond... 40ish and beyond...

I Knew I Was Getting Older When....

I started to notice service people calling me "Ma'am" instead of "Miss" 

When I heard a song I partied to in college on a classic rock station!


How did you know when you were getting older??

I get senior discounts that are for 55 and older. They don't ask....I don't tell. Hey, I'll take that 15%!

I can now officially join AARP, I have been getting invitations to join since I was 40! No, I haven't joined yet. Haven't taken the time to check it out.

Our oldest son turned 20, and I was an "older mom". My baby is a 5'9", 288 pound 17yo. yikes!

My husband, who is 9 months younger than me has NO hair. Naturally.

I saw an old man at Walmart last week just staring me down. He looked to be in his late 60s. He said my name and I realized it was a friend I graduated with. 

I wear old lady slippers all the time. Even my mom makes fun of me. I just took a liking to slippers?

Oh, and Steven Tyler is like 80 or something like that!

This post made me smile.

I have most of the things listed. (Not a grandma though).  

I'm not sure if it's Monopause brain or what but I hate when I walk into a room and stop --- am I going in the room or leaving it?
