Hello from your Great Aunt Peg

I turn 39 this year. Hubs is one year ahead of me. The numbers have never really mattered to me, but lately I'm starting to think they should.

So, how do you know when you might be getting old?

1. Famous people you thought were cool in high school recently died.

2. You agree with Bill O'Reilly almost all of the time. "YEAH, American traditions are out the window. It's a culture war. You tell 'em, Bill!"

3. While at Walgreens today, you decided to purchase Fish Oil because you've heard it helps with heart disease. You asked the pharmacist the difference between fish oil and bottles labeled "Omega Complex."

He doesn't really know. (very comforting)

You suggest that Omega Complex may taste better. He agrees just to get rid of you.

But you go with the fish oil anyway because it is clearly labeled "helps with cardiovascular disease" and "no fish burps."

Because the fish burp odor may clash with the Bengay.

Be sure to check by tomorrow. I'm hosting a giveaway for orthopedic shoes.

What you could do is put the orthopedics on the fish and live like you forgot you age

Hahaha. That's fantastic. I'm 30 and was diagnosed with High Cholesterol recently ... of course I'm 5'2" and 115 lbs so when I found out it was a shock to not only myself but also to my doctor. Turns out hereditary maladies suck! Anyway, the point is that I've been taking fish oil for a while now ... you definitely want the one labled "no fish burps" because you certainly don't want to be burping and thinking "did I eat sushi for lunch today ... I don't remember ... I thought I had spaghetti" :-)

Who asked for a heating pad for Christmas? That would be me...the "gonna' be 40 in five months" old person.

I will be 40 on Sunday. . .four decades on the planet. I always dreaded 30, but I had a year old baby when I was 30 so the day came and went and I was just busy and exhausted and glad to have her. Now 40 rolls around and I could care less, except that I don't bounce like I used to. Maybe I need some keratin or something to help with the bouncing.
