I'm Officially Old

It was bound to happen one day, and somehow I had a feeling it was coming soon. Today is the day I am officially old. "Why?" you ask.

It's been a long day, and a weird one at that. Neither Rich nor I are feeling up to par. As we sat on the couch enjoying an episode of Property Virgins on HGTV, I told him a funny story about something that happened in Sunday school yesterday. It made him think of our friend who works in our Word of Life Club, and suddenly he asked, "Did we have a meeting tonight?!?"

My mouth dropped open and I looked at him with wide eyes. "I think we did!" He handed me the phone, and I called our head coach to check into this. Yep, there was a meeting alright, and we missed it.

I cannot believe that I actually FORGOT ALL ABOUT A MEETING! I don't forget appointments or meetings or events. I mean, there have been times I've forgotten early in the day and then remembered later that I had somewhere I needed to be, but I've never completely and utterly forgotten I needed to be somewhere.

So what I'm wondering now is, will this just be the norm from now on? I feel as if I've crossed into unknown territory here. What is the next thing I'll forget? I'm already thinking about a doctor's appointment I have for Thursday morning. Am I going to forget that too?

This all has been a bit disconcerting. I think I need to lie down.


  1. OH MY GOSH! i totally forgot about the meeting too! YIKES!!

  2. Are you allsure there was ever a meeting? just kidding, you a funny!

  3. If that's the measure for age, I've been old for over a year!
