Earlier this month my daughter turned 35 and I had to ask myself...how did I get old enough to have a 35 year old kid? I thought I was 35? Somehow I think dementia is the best part of old age...we can happily fool oursleves!
Here's to grandchildren!
Good to hear from you. How are you doing? How's that weather treating you?? Maybe this next storm will bring you rain and not snow. I think it's supposed to be rain for us.
You seem to be taking the aging thing about the same as me. I have to keep reminding myself of my age and then I sit like a fool and laugh about it. I still don't get how it happened. I guess in the end it's just a number. Of course there are days my body feels like 159 instead of 59 but mentally I still feel like what we used to call a "teenybopper". There's a little droop in my bop these days but...all in all it's not that bad. I haven't hit those milestones like you have. My mother is still with me and I'm so glad for that. My dad passed at the age of 69 so I have a ways to go for that one.
Take good care Jenny,
