you have kids. so your whole brain got re-wired around external responsibilities. excessive introspection is for angsty teenagers and the self-indulgent.

So I just aged right out of it. How about that.

I know. I occasionally wonder I went to.

As you go through different phases of life, your needs change.  At least that's what I've been told.  I'm still waiting to see.

[ obligatory comment about my sister, who likes to "party like it's 1999" (which is to say, she's turning 40 this year but still acts like she's 25) ]

I partied like I was 40 when I was 25.

I play poker with this young lady of 43. She partied on her birthday like she was still 22, which made her feel
like 100 for two days.

I've never been much of a partier, and I can honestly say that with the exception of my health issues, I'm pretty much where I wanted to be when I was 35...

I mean, I thought I'd marry and have kids younger, but I have a man I love, wonderful kids, and we've finally bought our first home... a nice garden apartment, and it should be fixed up in 3 weeks or so so that we can move in...


Oh, I didn't imagine the dog. But I like him anyway.

He sure imagined you. I remember when he turned up in your life and just chose you.
I don't remember if I ever imagined 35, but I suppose I'm also where I wanted to be in life.
It's time to imagine 15 years into the future.
Where will we be, and what will we be doing at the time?

I imagine I'll be a grandparent in about 10 years, and that I will have learned to play a musicl instrument, and will have sold our house and moved into something smaller. I also imagine myself a teacher for brides for the commandments involved in being married. And maybe I'll live in Ohio.

Seems to me that when I turned 42, I should have automagically received the answer to the ultimate question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Instead, all I got was this dingy towel....

That sounds like me as well :)

Even when I was 20 or so I looked forward to getting as quickly as possible to the point where I was a homeowner hosting dinner parties.

I don't realize how generally nice and pleasant my children are until one of their friends comes over to play with them and I want to choke him out.

Some children can be annoying, but I don't generally take an instant dislike to most of them.

But I have met some exceptions. One little girl seemed to be groomed for a life of a slut (she wasn't even in her teens when I met her), which didn't do much to make me like her as she kept trying, with intention, to prevent me from going whereever I wanted to go (and it wasn't with playful intentions).

I would have enjoyed feeding her own eyes to her.

I know what you mean - most kids who come to the house are totally fine, but there's one little girl who I absolutely cannot stand. And she asks to come over like 2-3 time a week... I mostly just say no.

USOs vary dramatically; the one in which I'm sitting currently (Sea-Tac
Int'l) is nice, though a little crowded. Apparently, there is
renovation going on and there should be a new, bigger facility soon.

The one in San Antonio was basically a few couches and a bookshelf (at
least it was in 2005), but quite welcome for all of that.

Denver had a brand new one that was quite swanky with leather furniture
and a big screen television and various computers and video games and
toys for the kids and whatnot when I was last through there in 2006.

Just another five hours to kill...
