- I like to eat at 4:45 pm.
- I wear $400 insoles in my shoes.
- I love buffets.
- I get positively giddy when it's time to use a q-tip in Scott's ears or use one of the curettes I stole from the children's hospital. I wear a head lamp and everything.
- I say "sakes alive" and "goodness".
- I liked Betty White in college (before she was trendy).
- I just ordered two boxes of checks (Scott is convinced that me and 6 other people keep the check printing industry in business.)
- I use a coupon even at my kids' book fair and ask for the member's discount of 10% on top of the 50% off the going out of business sale at the store.
- I saved money before Dave Ramsey said it was cool.
- Oswald Chambers is my BFF.
- I watch Parenthood and identify with Christina, not Haddie.
- Scott gave me this on our wedding day and my grandma got jealous:
- I actually used the word "Tomcattin'" in reference to someone's behavior two days ago.
- My oldest child can now roll her eyes at me, purposely.
- I love the smell of baby powder.. On people, not baby bu*tts.
- I know all of the verses to "Be Thou My Vision" by heart.
- I show my love to people by sending them letters in the mail. You know, stamped letters.
- I actually use those return address labels solicitors send.
- My father's grandparents were first cousins. (oops, that doesn't mean I'm old, but it sure is funny.)
- My husband now has the ability to throw his back out while retrieving a piece of paper FROM THE FLOOR.
I have had four play dates this week and am all exhausted-like, just like an old lady would be.
Next week is a "free week", as Asher says, though Baby Man is returning and so we will have 1, 2, 2, 5, and 7 year old children in the house.
That, my friends, is what people of my generation call "a passel".

The upsides of getting older are:
- caring less what people think or how they respond to me (even Scott noticed this!!! hoorah! but, wait! doesn't that mean I am happy about what Scott thinks of me? back to drawing board...)
- having an excuse for not remembering anything
Instead, I will knit scarves for children at the local hospital, sit and look out the window, and wonder what has become of the younger generation.
You know, the usual.
