Feeling Old

I have been feeling old lately and I don't like it. I'm only 34 I shouldn't feel old, but for the last week or so, I have been feeling that way. May be it has some thing to do with my hair, or lack there of, or the fact that what little hair I have is starting to get gray flecks in it. Could be the gray chest hair. May be its from my dislike for loud noise. I have two, three year olds, and my house is not a quiet place. I work in a fire station where every thing and every one has the volume on max. I have started to ride in my car in silence over the last few weeks. Its the only place I can find that is quiet. Maybe its because my three year olds are learning to use a computer in preschool. We didn't have a computer in my elementary school until I was in 5th or 6th grade and then it was only one computer for the whole school. I think what really put me over the edge was a few days ago, in the nice quiet car, I started listening to talk radio. What am I thinking? I guess I should plug my ipod in and listen to some Led Zepplin. Wait, will that make me old too?


  1. I find my quiet moments in the evening, after the kids are asleep. I hunker down in the living room and read or work on my black work embroidery.

  2. I read alot after they go to bed.
