Note to Self:

Dear Self,

You are no longer 18. You are getting old. Therefore, you can no longer do some of the fun, carefree things you used to do.

Just because that diet soda looks so cool and refreshing, if you drink it at eight o' clock p.m. you WILL be up...all night. It is not worth it. Drink the water. You will sleep and it is free.

If you stay out in the MUST use sunscreen. Although you do tan easily, the sun will dry out your skin and you will be up...all night scratching at an endless itch. It is not worth it.

Finally, for several months now, you have eaten almost totally vegetarian. Although you have had a few forays into the meat eating world, they are few and far between. Why you thought it was a good idea to eat TWO meals containing meat in one day, I am not sure. However, the results are in. The heartburn and general blahs that it causes are quite awful. You WILL be up...all night. It is not worth it.

While being up all night was typical way back when. It is no longer fun and your children will suffer for it in the morning. Please remember this next time your are tempted to, again, take leave of all your senses in one weekend.

Yours truly,

Oh man that is so true-can I add, dear self-you are not able to lift and carry 300lbs worth of books/furniture and whatnot like you could when your back was strong like an ox when you were siree. And yes, you will feel the agony of it for weeks, not hours like before.


Have a good one!

Oh, bless your heart! I kept both "Grans" today and they were so good but I was still worn out when they left. A good indication that the "old grey mare ain't what she use to be." :o) Blessings to you for a great week! Hugs!
