    As i age, i realize that:

    AS I AGE, I REALIZE THAT:

    1. I talk to myself, because sometimes I need expert advice.

    2. Sometimes I roll my eyes out loud.

    3. I don't need anger management. I need people to stop annoying me.

    4. My people skills are just fine. It's my tolerance of idiots that needs work.

    5. The biggest lie I tell myself is "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."

    6. When I was a child I thought nap time was punishment. Now it's like a mini vacation.

    7. The day the world runs out of chocolate is just too terrible to think about.

    8. Even duct tape can't fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound!

    9. Wouldn't it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes; come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller.

    10. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would've put them on my knees.

    11. When the kids text me "plz" which is shorter than please. I text back "no" which is shorter than "yes".

    12. At my age "Getting lucky" means walking into a room and remembering what I came in there for.
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    Love it!! I definitely am spending more time in the hereafter, as in "what am I here after?" There's a reason I slow down. Attributed to the Amish is the saying "The Hurrier I Go- the Behinder I Get".

    I don't think it is just age for the "hereafter", I've been doing that since I was in my twenties.

    Life doesn’t get better because you ignore reality. It gets better when you accept reality and learn from your mistakes.

    #4 is so true!
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Well you painted a good picture of me. Life brings new frustrations every day. When I do something that leaves me shaking my head my DH say's old people are funny. I do my share to keep them laughing.

    True as can be, and now if I do not write is down on AM list, I do not remember and do not buy it and when I get home is an Oh No moment. Yesterday I got food and forgot meds!! Glad AM is only 2 miles or a little less from here down back roads.
