Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old

Country music lovers would probably recognize that line from a popular song (which I had never heard of until Jerry introduced it to me). This is exactly how I have been feeling for the past few days and I don't understand why. I guess I really am getting old.

We have not been getting much sleep for the past weeks and I have been feeling like shit. And even if I wake up at noon, I don't feel any better. Maybe it's because we've been going to bed early in the morning?

I was just thinking the other night - after I turned 25, things started to really go downhill. It used to be that I could stay up for several nights without sleeping at all. It used to be that I could go out during the week and still be up in time for work without feeling any different.

Now, I have to make sure that when I go out during the week, I have to go home around 1 or 2. Otherwise, I would be missing out on a day's work. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

I don't want to be old and boring!!!

  1. Honey, that just gets worse the older you get. My husband and I eat dinner now around 4:30-5PM and our grown kids are always telling us that they can't believe we are eating so early. Well, you aren't supposed to eat within 3 hours of going to bed and some nights we are out before 10pm. Just getting DANG old and wimpy I guess. Happens to the best of us. Hang in there for as long as you can.

  2. 25 really does seem to be the magic number. All the changes showed up once I hit 25. :P

  3. Delaney - oh no! Sometimes I find myself eating at 5 or 5:30, especially when I am at the office. Will be hanging in here - by the skin of my teeth, lol.

    Aves, yeah all the numbers after 25 suck.
