Getting old

Recommended Posts

As we age .....

It's harder to tell navy from black.

Everything old is new again, but if you wore it before, you're too old to wear it

the second time around.

Your kids are becoming you...and you don't like them! ..but your grandchildren

are perfect.

Yellow becomes the big color now like walls...hair...teeth.

Going out is good. Coming home is better.

When people say you look "Great"...they add "for your age."

When you needed the discount you had to pay full price.

Now you get discounts on everything, movies, hotels ... even air fares.

You forget names...but it's OK because the other people forgot they even knew you.

The last 2 outfits you wore had spots on them.

You ask your husband or friend how your outfit looks and they tell you the truth.

The five pounds you wanted to lose is now 15... and you have a better chance of

losing your keys than the 15 pounds.

Men realize they're never going to be really good at anything...especially golf.

Your husband is counting on you to remember things you don't remember.

The things you cared to do, you don't care to do, but you care that you don't

care to do them anymore.

Your husband sleeps better on a recliner chair with the TV blaring then he does

in bed. He calls it his "pre-sleep."

Remember when your mother said "Wear clean underwear in case you get in an

accident"? Now you bring clean underwear in case you HAVE an accident.

You used to say, "I hope my kids GET married. Now it's, "I hope they STAY married!"

The best place to have a conversation with your husband is in the bathroom...

THEN you'll have his full attention.

Who wants to wear 3" heels anyway?

You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch.

When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem were unheard of and a mouse was something that

made you climb on a table.

You use more 4 letter words like,"what?"..."when?"

Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.

Your husband has a night out with the guys but he's home by 9:00 P.M...next week

it will be 8:30 P.M.

You read 100 pages into a book before you realize you've read it.

Notice everything they sell in stores is sleeveless.

Many of the people in "People" Magazine you've never heard of.

Your concealer doesn't conceal.

Your lipstick bleeds.

Your mascara clumps and your eyebrows are disappearing.

You don't have hair under your arms and have very little on your legs, but your

chin needs to be plucked daily.

What used to be freckles are now liver spots...

Everybody whispers.

Now that your husband has retired ... you'd give anything if he'd find a job.

You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet....2 of which you will never wear.

But old is good in some things:...old songs...old movies...best of all:


(Thanks for being one of mine!)

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
