My doctor asked if anyone in my family suffered from mental illness.  I said, "No, we all seem to enjoy it." 
I thought growing older would take longer. 
My bucket list: keep breathing. 
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say, "close enough.." 
Being an adult is the dumbest thing I have ever done. 
I'm a multitasker. I can listen, ignore and forget all at the same time! 
Retirement to do list: Wake up……. Nailed it! 
 Sometimes it takes me all day to get nothing done. 
One minute you're young and fun. Next, you're turning down the car stereo to see better. 
Some people are like clouds, once they disappear it's a beautiful day. 
Common sense is not a gift.  It's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone else who doesn't have it. 
I came.  I saw.  I forgot what I was doing.  Retraced my steps.  Got lost on the way back. Now I have no idea what's going on! 
I'm at a place in my life where errands are starting to count as going out. 
I don't always go the extra mile, but when I do it's because I missed my exit. 
I don't mean to brag, but I finished my 14-day diet food supply in 9 hours and 20 minutes. 
Having plans sounds like a good idea until you have to put on clothes and leave the house. 
It's weird being the same age as old people. 
When I was a kid I wanted to be older but this is not what I expected! 
It's probably my age that tricks people into thinking I'm an adult.  
Never sing in the shower!   Singing leads to dancing, dancing leads to slipping, and slipping leads to paramedics seeing you naked.  So remember... don't sing! 
I see people my age mountain climbing.  I feel good getting my leg through my underwear without losing my balance. 

We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story anyway.

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is

such a nice change from being young.

"Rekindled friendships often burn more brightly"
