Getting Old

I'm going to share a secret with you all today...I am getting old.

Now, don't get me wrong, I don't really think 31 is that old...on other people, anyway. On me, though?

It's ancient!

Case in point: This past weekend, I spent all of Sunday cleaning the house. Laundry, vacuuming, dusting, dishes, toilet cleaning, shower scouring, carpet steaming, sorting through at least a month of mail...I went crazy.

(Steve will tell you that I went on a cleaning binge because I couldn't stand the thought of my neighbors coming over to check on the cats while we're gone, only to have them openly judge me for the mess I left behind, but I maintain it was because the layer of dust in our house was reaching Animal Hoarder levels. It's what happens when you only really clean once a month...

And besides, it's always nice to come back from vacation to a moderately clean house, in my opinion. So there.)

Anyway, in my younger days, a day of deep cleaning was nothing that my body couldn't handle. But, as I was lying in bed Sunday night, trying to figure out why exactly my hip was hurting, I realized that a day of deep cleaning was now seen by my poor old self as several hours of hard exercising. Which is a sad comment of the state of my fitness, I guess...

Unless all of my complaining finally convinces Steve that we need to bring in the cleaning service I want to hire, that is!

Here's hoping...

Blouse: Kohl's
Skirt: Target
Shoes: Nine West


  1. You are hilarious! I actually had the same situation happen to me not too long ago! I was hard core scrubbing the tub all hot and sweaty and my body ached, especially my arms, so bad! Since when do you sweat and ache from cleaning out a bathtub? Getting older sucks!

    This blouse is beautiful! I love the color and style of it. Is this a recent Kohls purchase? Ok, don't answer that, because I really don't need to shop!

  2. Oh, that blouse is so pretty!!

    Girl, I'm with you on that. It seems my body is cracking and popping every time I move these days. I was about to tell you a story about bones creaking during "our alone time", but decided it was TMI. Then I went and kind of told you anyways. lol

  3. I hear ya. I had a horrible pain in my hips a few weeks ago and I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. Then I realized it was from going down a water slide at Sesame Place. Sigh.. I'm old. Oh and my husband gave in on the cleaning service a year ago.. all of my complaining finally wore him down :)
    Nice outfit!! The blouse is pretty.

  4. You are so funny! You're not getting old :) Love the skirt!!

  5. 31 isn't old!! And who cares about age when you're that beautiful?

  6. gorgeous blouse! and 31 is soooo young! i love my 30s. it's such a fun age. but i do spend weekends at home and i'm always doing laundry, and dishes...but that's more because i have my kids!


  7. Hot Mama!!!

    The worst is when I get sore from dancing with my girlfriends (once a year). It always makes me feel so OLD.

  8. i would have NOT guessed you're 31! you wear it just as well as you do that outfit, i love your blouse... i usually get stuck calling mine "tops/shirts"


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
