Early 30s. I've enjoyed the last two years more than my 20s combined. I'm thinking this whole life thing just gets better with age.
I knew this girl made of memories and phrases, who lived her whole life in both chapters and stages.
Danced 'til the dawn, wished all her worries away.

She's a long way from a West Nashville grand ballroom gown.

until your body starts hurting in places it didn't before, and making funny popping and snapping sounds.

I'm officially to the point where I need to count to remember exactly how old I am... I am, let's see: 2011-1966= 45. I'm 45 :) (you can tell my kids aren't here with me right now because they will announce to anyone how old I am, even if they don't care or aren't paying any attention. Sophie will tug at their shirt sleeves just to tell them...these are the days I will miss when they are grown and gone, aren't they???) :)

Funny, but just last night we had dinner with friends who have 3 kids.

The oldest said he is 3-1/2, his sister said she is 2-1/2. I merely said at what age do we stop adding "half" to our ages?

Obviously at some point beyond 40, right? :D
Yeah, except in my case 40 and a half = 60 . . . :-?
I'm on the doorstep.

OR, if you want to use Jimmy's formula of "Living in 3/4 time", we can say we're 45.

we can say it, but whether anybody believes it is a whole other thing.

50 on the nose, but its just a number. Ask me how old I feel and act, and you'd get a much different answer.

Yeah, growing old sucks, but it beats the snot out of dying young.
