Aging Gracefully

Apparently, age really is just a number.

I can't decide if I should be flattered and/or annoyed by the amount of times per month that I am mistaken for a 17-year-old.

I hear this all of the time:

"You can't be a psychologist! You are too young?" or "You are a psychologist? That's impossible!" or more recently, "How old is our psychologist? Oh she's 21."

That's right folks, apparently I'm the female version of Doogie Howser M.D. I whipped right through 4 years of undergrad and 3 years of graduate school in a matter of minutes.


Today while turning in my rent check, the lady said, "Wow, when you pulled up to the building I was watching you and thinking look at that little girl in that pretty little dress."

Thanks lady! Didn't you hear that the driving age in Maryland is now 7-years-old?


Last week, a solicitor came to our door and asked for the lady of the house (duh that's me).

I said "Sorry, she's not here (b/c I didn't want to listen to him talk) and he replied, "I'll come back, you're not even old enough to vote yet and I need to talk to someone that can vote."


I'm going to be 27 in nine days. Honestly, I do not think that I look that young.

In other news, I found navy blue and red towels today at the Burlington Coat Factory by my school. Additionally, I found the lamps (these lamps have taken many, many days to find) for our living room. Now, I need to try to curb the spending. I had forgotten just how expensive moving is.

My current stressor is trying to decide whether or not to pack up my stuff. I'm moving approximately 100 feet away (give or take, it may be closer) into another, bigger apartment. I can't decide if I want to pack it all up in boxes or just walk stacks of plates back and forth a trillion times. Does anyone have any insight and/or opinions on how to tackle this move?

Methinks it's not moving that's expensive -- it's all the decorating! Woman, I told you to wait until you are engaged, and then register for all that stuff! Stop spending money on towels and shower curtains!!!!

Ok ...

Walk all the stuff back and forth. Boxes and packing crap are expensive and it will take twice as long. Carrying kitchen stuff back and forth sounds like a job for your cousins. Take them out for ice cream when you're all done.

Well.. in my defense..

We now have two bathrooms and only enough stuff for one.

The shower curtain was kinda a necessity since that's going to be John's bathroom.

As for the towels... I only bought TWO- for decor reasons.. but that's totally not a whole set. =]

The rest we will register for. However, it may be 2050 before we get married so we're gonna need a towel between now and then.
