Same old me

The good news is, the flu didn't surface at all. It's gone now. Once again, the flu shot has help to reduce many unproductive days in my life. When the kids were little, I was down with flu all the time. A simple cold would make me feel terrible for days. Those were the days...

Today I watched YK walk out the door dressed in his best for a presentation in school. He looked like a young working executive in a long sleeve shirt and black leather shoes. I was like his boss standing next to him.

While we were having breakfast at McDonalds, I couldn't help but marvel at how quickly the kids have grown. In no time, they will be bringing home the bacon and I can go into semi-retirement.

One question I keep asking myself is, "Do I feel old?" Well, I don't! When I was younger, I thought I would behave differently when I get to this age but the truth is, one doesn't change very much. If you had always enjoyed dancing in your youth, chances are you would still love dancing in your golden years.

The adventurous type would still crave for adventure at any age. As long as I am still capable, I would love to go hiking in Sicily or bike through the French countryside during summer. I want to do all those things that I couldn't find time to do in my youth.

So if you've ever wondered what it's like to be old, you can stop wondering. Like for me, apart from the crinkly skin and creaking bones, nothing much has really changed. I'm still the same old me.

Hi Blur
Nice to see you again after a long while.
Such a beautiful and attractive woman like you shoudln't refer 'getting old'. The important thing is not your biological age. You're in the age how you feel like. Just look at the mirror Blur then you'll see what i mean :)

Greetings from Northwich

Hey, you look YOUNG anyway!!! :-D Glad to hear the flu bug's gone now! :-D It's a bit interesting though to feel that time has flown SO fast. It seemed when I was a kid that time went by too slowly...slowly creeping by he he he...

Burcu - Oh, I miss seeing you in my blog! Thanks for the compliment but yah, it's all in the mind. Then again, our mind plays tricks on us sometimes :-)

Amel - Thanks :-) It's true isn't it, that time passes too quickly now that we are older. Maybe cos we have so many things to do and so little time...
