Feeling it

In less than 60 days I turn (gulp) 57. Suddenly I'm aware of my years.

•  It's harder to stand up after I've been sitting for a while

•  I completely forget common words (Sunday, after church, I kept saying, "you know, the thing" when I was referring to an insert in the bulletin)

•  The skin around my eyes is as thin, and as wrinkled, as tissue paper

I'm not digging any of this. But, alas, I can only stave it off, I can't completely prevent it. And I'm lucky it's taken me this long to start seriously showing my years on the outside.


  1. trust me...i never gets better. hang on tight sister

  2. I'm starting to have the crepey droopy eyelids. And chin hairs.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
