Officially an Old Person?? And Other This 'N That Stuff

Today, I applied for Social Security.  I am pretty sure that means, I am officially an old person.

Today, I did laundry and picked up the little tornado messes left behind by L & M, the twin granddaughters.  We had such a nice weekend.  Favorable weather (as in NO rain).  Only disagreement they had (hey, they ARE siblings) was over Wii.  They even went to bed AND to sleep with no stalling games.  There were the incessant questions, many of which I could not answer, like do any of you understand that new math stuff??  And, girls, I have NO idea which dog loves me more, snicker, you expect me to have an answer??  LOL They did spy a bunny in the yard and geese and gozling too, they could not run between windows fast enough, bunny, gozling, bunny, gozling - - - -   And, of course, they got their yorkie fix, and the yorks were all tired out and sure slept good last night!  LOL

Man will be moving his Mom into a different living situation later this week.  A very trying time for all of us, as anyone who has been through this well knows.  Many tears, meetings, phone calls, more tears, more meetings, more phone calls.

Wedding events are starting to fill my calendar.  Yep, I am grinning!  Cept for the fact that I am gonna have to go shopping cause I cannot wear jeans to the wedding I am grinning.  (Can you tell, shopping is not something I LOVE doing??  LOL)  OK, it will be fun, shopping with the new gal in our lives!

Happy to find someone else who does not enjoy shopping. At least for clothes. Garden center or bookstore - OK. Hope everything works out with Man's mom's living situation. Sounds like grandparents' house is Fun City for granddaughters!

You don't sound old at all --- way to exuberant and full of life. Go forth with the new gal, and find the most gorgeous of outfits.

Wow Social Security. I don't think you're really old until you go on Medicare!

Congrats on making it to SS age!

Sounds like a great weekend! Old is a state of mind and I don't believe your mind is anywhere near ready to be labeled old. I hope all goes well with your MIL, I do know how trying it can be to have to make decisions for a parent.

I guess I'm in the minority but I love shopping for a new party dress!

Hi Carol,
Sorry I missed this yesterday. Congratulations on making it to an age at which you can finally start getting something from the government instead of giving it to them! I echo Apple's comment about old; you're not. And also wish you all the best with your mom in law. Cheers! Jennifer
