It's Gettin' Old

Yeah, more 3x3 cards. I think I'm done making these. I dunno, we'll see. I tend to get really excited about things when they're new, then suddenly, I'm over them. But these are fun & easy, so when I need a quick card (like all my other ones are so complex!) I can just do one of these.

You know, lately I've been thinking about getting older. No, not considering whether or not I want to get older, but just about aging in general. I bring this up because someone near & dear to me has a birthday coming up, and it got me thinking. People always complain about getting older, but really, what's the alternative? That's right. Being dead. Wait, it gets better. I thought I'd put together a list of all the good things about getting older. See, told ya it got better. K, here we go.

1. You're not 15. Come on, that's a big one. Who wants to be a teenager again? Blech. No offense to the current teenagers, but I don't know anyone over 30 who'd go back in time & do it again. Ok, maybe if they got a lot of money for it, could know then what they know now, and could click their heels & immediately be snapped back to now if something went horribly wrong. Like, they wrecked dad's car or it was finals time or something like that. Maybe.


Ok, so it's a work in progress. But, my point is that it's not all bad getting older. Wrinkles, a few extra pounds, maybe some gray hair...that's not really all that bad. Ok, I'll fess up. I do regularly dye my gray hair, but to be fair, I've had gray hair since I was 20, and that's just not right! Yeah, I know I skipped health problems and no longer feeling relevant to the world around you. Blah, blah, blah. But it's my blog and I'll write what I want. I would like to ask, whose cruel idea was gravity? Really, there's no point to gravity when it comes to the human body. That's just plain old mean. Phew. Wow, I know I feel better. Anybody else? Anybody?

Happy Birthday Mint!!!
Love the cards.
I die my hair too. And who did make gravity, it sucks.

Happy Birthday, Mint!
Have a great day, I'm sure you will.

Sometimes I wish I was 30, then I wouldn't have two teenagers...

Love and miss you!

These little cards are just so darn cute! And being older does, in fact, make you wiser: You know sooner when you've done something really dumb. Happy Birthday!
