Five on Friday: Feeling, if Not Acting, My Age Lately

I've had many opportunities to go out with friends lately and I'm headed out to Karaoke Night at the dive bar for the second time in a month tonight. Having a more active social life again makes me feel like I'm not necessarily acting my age . . . because the last time I went out this much was definitely pre-kids.

But after I have a great time tonight, come home and pass out hard after the couple of drinks I'll have, I will most likely have middle-of-the-night insomnia. And I will totally be feeling it all day tomorrow. 

So while I don't always feel like I'm acting my age lately, I sure have been feeling it. Other examples:

1. I will take you on in the random inexplicable pain challenge and I will dominate. Have you hurt your arm trying to put your jacket on? Go back to preschool, whipper snapper.
2. I play a lot of Scrabble. I've always played Scrabble, but it's sort of a . . . lifestyle choice now, I guess you could say.

3. My friend's son guessed that I was 37 years old, which naturally gave me a little charge. While that momentarily made me felt good and young, I then realized how low my standards have gotten. Imagine being 21 and having someone guess you were 37? Oof.

4. I think I need to have my blood pressure medication adjusted.

5.  And, all the proof you need to prove how old I actually am: finding my kids' shoes like this gives me a serious case of agida.

(if you're not a New Jersey/New York Italian: agida)
