Am I Old or staying Young?
I really need to be a grandmother. I'm old enough, my friend's have them. I have to actively remind myself to get excited and do fun stuff with my youngest. The tooth fairy, Easter Bunny and other holidays used to be so fun. When did I get to be old? I turned around one day and didn't want to go to the park. That must have been when I wasn't looking. Wouldn't it be nice to play for the day and then send them home? Anyway Easter at the Adams turned out nice (I think) and I had baskets for everybody and eggs - plastic and real - hidden everywhere before the children (they are big children) got up. Although I had to remind myself and I was out on the last minute run to get candy, baskets, plastic eggs and stuff. Do children keep you young or are they what makes you get old? I'd really love to go on a cruise. Bake in the sun then hike around a mountain lake, scuba dive in the ocean, and play on the beach. Maybe we could get the toothfairy to just come once and not have to remember late at night to make her run. What do you think about one great big gift instead of all the quarters every few months?
