Oh geez, I am losing it big time. I wrote the post about the meme on the 30th (I thought) and scheduled it to post on the 31st - *so* pleased with my good timing since that would give me a whole day to think about my first post. Woo hoo for me. I woke up this morning and started reading comments. When I got to Chara Michele's comment she said "I think this is such an interesting idea! :) I might start it tomorrow (instead of today, the 1st), but I think I will go ahead and join in." What?? Today the 1st? Oh great, just lost another day... again.
So I give you A is for Aging. I'm 46. I'm getting old and forgetful and my knee hurts and the only music I can sing along to is what they play on the sound system at the thrift store. I take naps and wear reading glasses and have recently started golf lessons.* Yep, I'm an old fuddy duddy.
But, there is a good side to getting older. You know you can weather the storm because you've done it before. You know everything will seem better in the morning. Young children clap when they see you ride a bicycle. You know fashions come and go but great style lasts forever. I am continually fascinated and thrilled with computers, cell phones, DVD's and all the other new technology because I know what it was like using a card catalog to research a paper, looking for a pay phone to call home, and only seeing a movie once, in a theater, and then waiting for it to come to TV ten years later.
I am really excited to see so many people participating in the Encyclopedia of Me Meme! Please jump in anywhere and anytime. Don't feel like you have to post for every letter or match that letter to the "correct" day. You are welcome to become involved on any level - I'm just happy to have you doing it with me :)
*Inside joke to my dad, but I really am taking golf lessons ;)
