The Ouchie Part of Getting Older.

on September 18, 2012

I have my armor on already today.  My son is eating his pancakes and I am shouldering armor.  It shouldn’t be this way but getting old is tough.  Here’s how it started.

Little Man: Mom, what are saltines?

Mom: They’re crackers.

Little Man: What kind of crackers?

Mom: They’re white and you can use them in soup or to put cheese on.  Used to, when I was a kid, you ate them when you felt sick.  People would have saltines and 7-up when they were sick.

Little Man: 7-Up? Really?

Mom: Coke was a little heavy when you were sick so we drank 7-Up.

Little Man?  They had coke way back then?  I didn’t know coke was around in the olden days.

Ugghhhh…..yep, it was a sucker punch.  “Back then”…as tho it was three hundred years ago.  It’s bad enough that, at all of 45, I can hardly read ANY fine print and am having a hard time with restaurant menus.  Last week in church, I opened my bible during the sermon and felt my ego sink as I realized I couldn’t even focus on the words.  Perhaps if I had the man in the row in front of me hold my bible at a distance I might have a chance but, then again,  the print is so small that probably won’t hardly help either.  The getting older thing is a little painful :(.  It’s a bit of a harsh reality and my kids are not helping me ease into it at all, LOL.  They are right up in my face with it.  Deep breath….I think I will keep the armor on today and, hopefully, the armor will lessen the ouchies.
