It's not like I didn't already know it, but I am really starting to feel it lately. Yes it is official, I am OLD. Last night at Bia's swim lesson my phone rang .. my ringer is my Alma Mater's fight song. After I got off the woman next to me commented on my ring and said she went to school there too. I asked her when she graduated ... 4 years after me ... at least it was 4 and not 10 years after me like some of the "kids" that work in my office. On Wednesday, I was talking to a fellow soccer mom at practice and she made a comment about turning 30 next year ... I almost spit my water out when she told me this - yep I am old. As if my gray hairs and wrinkles weren't enough, it seems like everyone I interact with these days is quite a bit younger than me!
See the thing is I was always the youngest person. I have a late birthday and all of my friends were older than me in high school and college. In my Bunco group I was the youngest for the longest time. Now it seems like everywhere I go I am the old lady. I will be closer to 40 than 30 in a mere 2 months - where did the time go? I felt even older when I woke up before dawn this morning (seriously - it was 4:15 am) and my body ached as I walked to the bathroom (stupid, stupid, stupid 5:30 am conference calls) ... so now I am OLD and TIRED!
Good thing it's Friday, I need to rest up my OLD and tired self!
