At the end of the Rainbow...

The day is coming.
Sooner than I would like.
Im getting old....
How do I know?
  • Every morning, it seems that my face ages a little more and injectable botulism is beginning to sound more and more appealing. okay, I lied. I already tried it.   Once.
  • I get super excited when i see Jem, Carebears, RainbowBrite, or She-Ra on TV and my kids have no freakin interest in old cartoons.
  • Hope my kids will some day play Oregon Trail in computer class.
  • Realizing that I must let go of my gi-normous collection of beanie babies. ***denial.
  • My kids are amazed that I seem to know how to beat everything on their Wii Mario game. Cuz I beat that sh*t on Super Nintendo when I was 12. And it was cooler. 
  • But, nothing beat Duck Hunt. :)
  • 90s clothing has made a comeback. Leggings and  converse. I thought only OUTDATED old shit comes back in style, like platforms of the 70s or the rockabilly style of the 50s... not anything during MY OWN lifetime!
  • I can chant and clap "Miss Suzie had a steamboat, the steamboat had a bell, the steamboat went to heaven, the steamboat went to Hell-o operator......" better than my kid can. *hell, I wrote that sh*t!
  • I remember then watching Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing... and watching it now on TMC.. the classics! wtf?!?
  • I get more excited about bbqin with the homies than going crazy clubbin! *what happen to my 20s?
  • I hate all this new rap... what happened to the classic Tupac? *oh snap. did I just say classic?
What can you add to this list?

C'mon.... make me feel old.... Grrrrrrr.

Amanda said...

I caught Issac and I ranting about "kids these days," with some older (meaning retired) couples the other day. For sure that's going on the list.

When there are an abundance of Cabbage Patch Kids out during the holiday season I love to go and study them all and look at their weird randomly generated names. I remember my Cabbage Patch so well. My dad went after work one day apon hearing a local store had gotten them in and snagged one. She had short dirty blonde yarn hair and green eyes and her given name was Meredith Sadie. In my five year old wisdom, I decided her name should be changed to "Carol." My guess is that I was watching a lot of Growing Pains at the time :)

About Me

My photo
I've been living in Mexico now for about a two years with my hubby and 2 kids. Not exactly by choice, but we're here nonetheless. Luckily, I live with quite a few of the accomodations that i was used to in the states. In spite of those convienences, we also have a water tank with asbestos, outdated electricity, massive amounts of dust, caterpillars that burn your skin, and thousands of windshield washers on every street corner. My kiddos and I are learning to speak spanish and adjust to life away from our family and friends in the States.
