Feeling Old

I have moved on to that next stage of life. I have been having a difficult time finding jeans that fit me. I normally shop in the "juniors" section, but lately all the jeans are cut really low and with running after little ones, I don't want to expose things. So, a few days ago I decided to look in the "misses" section and I found a perfect pair of jeans (that don't look like mom jeans). I was so happy to find a pair of jeans that fit well and yet so sad that I now have moved on to the "misses" section. I just keep reminding myself of what Stacy and Clinton say on "What Not to Wear" .....that you have to find clothes that fit you well, not worrying about what section or what size they are. However, I can't help but be sad..... it's a reminder that I am aging.
To make matters worse, I went to the grocery store (without the kiddos) to buy rum for my homemade German Chocolate Cake. The lady did not card me!!! She asked me my age (I had to think for a minute because I have kind of lost track) and she believed me. I asked her if she wanted to see my ID and she said "No." (This was the day after the "jeans" incident) I was so sad....this is the very first time someone has not carded me. I think I am all sensitive about this age thing because my Birthday is next week. I usually don't think much about my age, but my birthday is coming so I can't help it.
I will be posting more stuff soon. I just finished editing some of my pictures from the Photography workshop I went to this last weekend (It was amazing!).

  1. I TOTALLY know what you mean! Stacey and Clinton voices are always talking to me, too! I've just come to accept that things fit more age appropriate in the misses section anyway... so I'm at peace about it. haha I guess we aren't spring chickens any more. ;)
