And...We're Old!



I had no idea things would fall apart this quickly. I mean, I much prefer getting old to the alternative (Death? Yeah, until we find a way to actually turn back time, death is the only other way...), but that doesn't mean it's not odd how our bodies can change so fast.

For instance? I can't stay up all night anymore. I know! It's super sad and shit! Well, really I can still stay up, but the aftermath is exhausting.

The last time HUBS and I spent the night awake was probably around April. It was fun; coffee and hot chocolate were imbibed, movies were watched and internet browsed. But, for the entire week after I. Was. Ruined. For the first time in months I had to sleep until noon every single day, and then after a few hours awake I was tired again.

Then, around August, we both discovered we were having difficulties making it to our (now standard) bedtime of 1 a.m. We had gotten in the habit of watching Craig and then drifting off to sleep. But now? We usually fall asleep on the couch by 10:30 or 11.

I suppose it won't be long now until we're eating dinner at 4 p.m., hitting the sack at 8 p.m. and starting our day before the sun does. Where's my Denny's discount?

Can anybody else feel middle/old age creeping up on them? What's it doing to you?

Oh my god I am the same way!!! But worse... I can feel it the next day if I stay up past 10, even though I get up at 5, I still used to be able to stay up past 1... ugh!

P.S. I'm sure you've seen Writer's Digest magazine, but I happened to pass it at Borders this weekend and thought I might pass along, there was an article about the best websites for writers:

(And there's a section for competitions on their site too)

Sugar, thanks so much for the info!

Oooh, staying up past 10pm does it to you? Wait...I usually get sleepy around an hour after that anyway. I guess I'm not that far behind you!
