You know you're old when...

You plan a big "Girls Night Out" and start out planning dinner/drinks downtown and then some crazy downtown/midtown bar hopping afterwards.

Then, it becomes just dinner downtown and hanging out at the restuarant bar and listening to the band.

Next, it becomes just dinner at a quiet place downtown. Hey, it's been a long time! We need to catch up, right?

Finally, it becomes dinner at your favorite place in the 'burbs, so you don't have to be as far from the kiddos & home. Hey, at least it was a girls night out!!! I'll take it!

That is exactly what happened when planning the last girls night out. I started to think about this on my drive to work I was listening to The Point (106.9). Hmmm, I've been listening to The Point a lot more lately.

It's amazing how I actually still remember every word to "Jesse's Girl" (Rick Springfield), "Sweet Child of Mine" (GNR), "Love is a Battlefield" (Pat Benetar), "Orange Crush" (REM) or "One" (U2)...almost like it was yesterday. Hey, wait! Wasn't it just yesterday???? When did I grow up? When did I get old? :-)

Jeeze, I need to get back to running!

Speaking of running...the Houston Marathon is now SOLD OUT! I hope everyone registered in time!

I registered!!!

OMG, girl. I don't know how old you really are but you look young, young, young. And you're even younger at heart. Hope classes are winding down for you soon and you get some relaxing/running time.

It all happens so fast! I think the feeling is a by-product of our fast-paced society. Just the other day I asked my teenage brother what cool bands are out because I'm too old to find out about them on my own! Sigh.

Now I feel really old.

One cool thing a couple weeks daughter went to see Aerosmith and I had seen them in concert in 1975.

Java Mom...I am a child of the 80's and darn proud of it! :-)

Here's my big night - coloring all the grey roots in my hair. Then I'll call a girlfriend to commiserate because it's 8:30 at night and we're too tired to actually meet up in person!
