When did they get old?

My parents are only in their late 60’s.  First off, when did late 60’s seem like its NOT old?  Secondly, when did my parents get wrinkles?  When did my mom get the ‘yes’ shakes?  When did my dad get old man grumpy?  When did both of them start to take so many pills??

It’s tough seeing my mother, this proud women, admit defeat over certain things with her body that have refused to work.  It’s tough noticing that my father can’t do all of the handyman stuff he once could.

I love those old fuckers.  They need to stick around to see their grandkids graduate from high school.  Yeah, M only just graduated from preschool.  Yes, D is only turning 2 this month.  I can dream, can’t I?

  1. Genetics suck. Especially in our family. But we’re also tough as nails with wit and sarcasm. We weather the storms, the good, the bad, the ugly, and the aging. xox

  2. Just remember that things can be worse!! Straws are good and the ECV is a comin’ sooner than later. However, I’m not old but a “senior” and will keep movin’ right alone.
