I remember, on date X, looking at an older photo of myself and thinking, "Whoa, I looked a lot younger then than now." Years later, I looked at a photo of myself taken around the time of date X, and thinking "Whoa, I looked a lot younger then than now."

This cycle has now been repeated about 10 times!

Yes fortunately. And I've improved on my mistake by leaving out the coffee instead of the water. Now, I simply pour a nice steaming cup of hot water and stir in some instant.

The other day, I misplaced my glasses. I asked my dog..."have you seen my glasses?" and looked at her like I expected an answer before I came to my senses.

If you had a Border Collie he/she would have found the glasses and also checked to see that your prescription was up to date.

I wish that was all that spread as I aged......

I know what you mean! The past month I've noticed the crepey arms. I excercise with hand weights all the time (10 lbs.) and have good muscle tone, but suddenly my skin is getting that look. Ugh, that does make me feel old.

I dreamt that I am peeing and I woke up because I felt something wet and warm. Not a dream after all.
