Ugh I feel old today

Today is my middle son's birthday, he is 21.
I took him and dropped him off at his dads work and his dad will drive him out to his friends house in Airdrie.
I was hoping he would want to spend the evening with us, but I guess his friends have "big plans" for him tonight.
As I was driving home, I started thinking about my son when he was just a baby, and how he has changed and all that he has accomplished, how he went from being a Garth Brooks fan to a hard rock kinda guy. How he went from a clean cut student to a scruffy construction worker.
I thought about how when he was around 5, he would follow me like a shadow constantly grabbing onto my leg or my arm telling me had to tell me a secret as if it were most urgent, so I'd bend down and he'd whisper "I love you Mommy".
He's all grown up now, and it makes me feel so old:sad:
Then I remind myself the worst is yet to come, in 15 days my oldest will be 24!:eek:....Somebody pass the Vodka....:rolleyes:

Ohhhh what are you whining about? :D MY oldest son turned 36 today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are only as old as you feel. I forget until I look in the mirror and see a middle aged woman looking back that I am well beyond the 30 something I envision myself as being. :p

Yup get in line and pass the vodka. My only boy is 31 and I don't know how that happened when I don't feel older than 35 myself.

I prefer gin, but whatever works...my oldest is 32 on the 19th of this month. How did we all end up with kids born in November :shrug:
Some days it just don't feel good being me...but others aren't too bad. Let's hope the good continue for a long, long time for all of us...but still, pass the gin:laughing:

Thanks..I no longer have reason to worry about that, but I guess I should have just drank the wine and went to sleep on that particular Valentines Day:D
Ugh, feeling reeeeaally old and blue today. Maybe I should start wearing a big sun lamp or get a big bottle of happy pills, or maybe another bottle of the aforementioned wine.
Today I AM THE CRAZY OLD CAT LADY!!:crazy:

Sounds like there are more people getting drunk than will fit into one car. So seeing as I can no longer drink I will share in the driving. :thumbs up

Well I am not quite as old as some, but I do have a 26 year old daughter.

Eck gads, that looks bad in writing :eek: :yell: :sad:

Rainbow, pass the bottle please and not when it is empty :laughing:

he he ...I decided on a beer instead...Imported though. I didn't even realize I had it as it was a gift from friend who spent a few years in Germany and when she saw her "fav" here in Canada decided to bring a few to me. That was last Christmas - it may even be skunky by now but what would I know? I may be sorry tomorrow, but man I DO feel lousy tonight. Really, in case anyone gets the wrong idea...I normally do not imbibe more than a strawberry zinfendel in the summer.:angel:

This is going to sound sooo bad, Aslan, I know you don't partake so sorry, But after 2 beer, I feel better. Maybe its because I never usually drink. Mind you tomorrow, I may not be quite as perky!!!
I am soo bad.:loser:

I feel old sometimes too. Especially when I realized my niece turned 20 this week. I remember celebrating her first birthday!

But, I also sometimes feel like I just graduated high school. Heck, I have nightmares that I'm at my graduation and they tell me I missed too much class and can't graduate!

Aslan, "Feeling Good" is the only song I listen to from Micheal Buble. I heard a Beatles song that he butchered, infuriated me actually...it's almost sacreligious to do such a thing in my opinion :laughing:

I have nightmares that a huge assignment is due and I hadn't started it, or I hadn't attended classes :eek: I thought I was the only person who had this dream. :o

My daughter turned 18 this year and is in university. I am so proud but at the same time I look at her and I really cannot see where all those years went.

I am 45 years young and I have to say that I don't think I would change a thing in my life. I am at peace with my years, my body image, even my lines that are starting to roadmap my eyes - I call them lines of years of laughter and smiles. I earned them all.

Just enjoy day by day. It goes slower when you do.

:eek:...uhhh I think I can wait for that to happen for just a couple more years at least.

At 42, I'm not ready to be a grandma...not just yet.

Actually, I am very comfortable in my age, in my body, in my life. But every now and then, especially when my kids get a year older, I get a little sad. Then I get over it :D
