God, I'm old


I almost didn't even blog today because I'm in a funk (again). The weather here has been very un-Phoenix-like again today: dreary, cold (low 50s), overcast, and raining.

I am attributing my feelings of apathy in part to the weather. The fact that my eating has not been the best, I haven't been to the gym in a week, and all my current work assignments are BORING could all be contributing factors as well.

Anyhoo. . . . while browsing around on Facebook today, I learned that someone whom I used to babysit is pregnant and due in April. I am genuinely happy for her--that's not the point--but man, did it make me feel old!

And I felt even older when I realized that this woman has been married for a year, has a master's degree, is a working family therapist, and is 25 years old. In other words, she is AN ADULT in every sense of the word. Wow. It's weird to think that someone who I knew when she still used a pacifier is now a genuine grown-up.

Add her to the list of people I know who are pregnant or have had a baby in the past 3 years. The list must be over 30 by now, with some names appearing twice. ;-)

Good lord, I know how you feel! One of the kids I used to babysit has three kids and his sister just had a baby (and they are like 7 years apart - she's younger). I'm seriously rubbing Ben Gay into my joints as I type this.

I know how you are feeling - wish I could do something to cheer you up - but it will get better. Promise.

Ha! I got a Christmas card yesterday from a kid I used to babysit. She's been married a few years and has twin 3year olds. So I totally get this one.
