Grown Up

Please say a little prayer for my cousin Suzanne and her five year old daughter Michelle. Michelle was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia last spring, and she's going in for her marrow transplant today. Both have been really strong through all this.

A cheat. I have to GIVE an inservice today, on computer programs we're using in the district. Gulp!

1 . Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.
2 . Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.
3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
4. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
5. You hear your favorite song on an elevator.
6 . You watch the Weather Channel.
7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of hook up and break up.
8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14. (HA! Not me!)
9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."
10. You're the one calling the police because those damn kids next door won't turn down the stereo.
11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.
12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.
13. Your car insurance goes down and your payments go up.
14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonalds leftovers.
15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
16. You no longer take naps from noon to 6 PM
17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.
18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.
19. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.
20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."
21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
22. "I just can't drink the way I used to," replaces, I 'm never going drink that much again."
23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.
24. You no longer drink at home to save money before going to a bar.
25 . You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you.

My heart and prayers go out to your cousin and her daughter! What a thing to have to go through.

Here's hoping little Michelle is feeling better really soon.

As for the list, the Taco Bell one made me laugh. When we were in college, the only things open late were Hardee's and the Taco Bell. We used to walk through the drive-through at Taco Bell because we didn't have a car. :)
