Oy, I'm getting old

And creaky. I used to laugh at Jason and all his popping, cracking, creaking parts. But I really need to stop, because I'm starting to pop and crack and creak too. So, I asked my blog pals: How old would you say you are, if you didn't actually know your age?

Truthfully? I think I would guess pretty close to my actual age (which, for blog purposes, we will call "early 30's"). I've always had friends that were older than myself and I've always felt older than my actual age. But these days, I feel like I fit. Like it's right to be a stay at home mom with two kids entering school. Like it's okay to be exploring new hobbies and ideas. Like it's appropriate that we're getting prepared to sell our first home and buy a newer (hopefully bigger) one.

And the creaking? Yeah, I guess it's about time for that to be showing up, too. Although maybe, just maybe, if I would get up out of this chair more often and get a little exercise, there wouldn't be quite so much noise.

Now, the ages of the rest of my family? Let's see. If I didn't know better, I would guess George (3) to be about ohhhhh, three; Emma (5) to be at least ohhhhhh, fifteen; and Jason (slightly older early 30's) to be at most ohhhhhhh, twelve.

Meg just put a liitle oil on those creaks (preferably something with a luscious perfume) and don't worry ablut it. You can start worrying about the 'E' word when you stop running around after your kids.

Sometimes I feel married to a 12 year old as well. LOL esp. this time of year when I swear some of the toys he buys are more for him then my son!

I love the ages of your family! I also liked the size of the word "exercise"! I may need to drag you on the treadmill with me!

Yep Pan and Jason would get along just fine. Pan bought my bil a rc helicopter for Christmas and bought one for himself at the time. When he is not busy at work he flies it around his office.
