That time I realized I was old(er)

Okay, so the AARP is not exactly knocking down my door (although they keep sending Dean stuff about car insurance?), and I am pretty far from being able to get a senior citizen's discount on my coffee, so I don't think I can say I am "old" just yet. However, there have been a few things that have made me realize that I am indeed getting older.  Because I am Katie and I love to make lists, here is a list of things that have made me feel old lately:

 One. When I first heard the term "snapchat" in conversation, I had to Google it. 
 Two. A five year old asked me if I played internet games when I was little.... and the answer was no.

  Three. I shouted "SuperStar" (in a very Molly Shannon fashion) around a college freshman and they didn't get it.

Four. The guy on the grocery store called me "Ma'am" not "miss"

Five. I spent about 4 hours cleaning my house with Dean yesterday.  At the end of the day I thought to myself  "that was a really good weekend"... and we didn't even drink while cleaning.

Because I realized that I am really closer to 30 than I am 20. I decided to make a "30 by 30 list".  I will go over the details with you tomorrow, but if you are impatient (like me) then you can just click on the new tab at the top of my page.  


  1. Don't you hate those moments when: omg when I was a kid or : it dawned on me ibam close to closing in on my 10 year hs reunion....

  2. This is hysterical! I had no idea what snapchat was either for the longest time.

    By the way, I totally would've understood your Superstar reference. That movie is gold.
