    yeah... I think I had more fun as a party animal and outdoors sports enthusiast at the age of 23 or 24 than I do now... but then again, my knee sucks and I got bored with the party scene

    I like the idea that this bag of bones will grow old and I will die. Leaving only the memories, feelings, and ideas behind in the minds of people. To me that is real, a real legacy of the dumb stuff I shared with others.

    How far can what you do live on? To me that is the real infinity.

    I guess I missed the memo. I was married with three kids at 27.

    Of course the good part is that my youngest child is in his last year of elementary, so I have a lot of comparatively irresponsible years yet ahead.

    Edit: To go along with my future plans of being an old lady with long hair in a bun, I've stopped coloring my hair and am growing my bangs out. I'm going to look like such a hippy.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    and on that note, my parents seem to have so much more fun since my sis and I left home... they're always out hiking, skiing, snow mobiling, they went to europe and are always spending the weekend in the cabin... it's like they're HAPPY that we left or something

    and we bought a house last fall and have to suffer the joys of home ownership, compromising between people's homes on holidays, entertaining family and working jobs and paying bills and such... dude, I'm too young for all of that responsibility (thankfully the man is a responsible and organized type!)

    When my kids were all potty trained, out of car seats, and started in school I felt like I'd been paroled. Freaking out a bit about the oldest going to college next fall, though. :horor:

    That is a very lucky thing indeed and even though all that stuff is a pain in the bum, it is, IMO, it's what cements a compatible couple into solid unit. I bet your parents are so proud and that is what allows them to have a good time in their empty nest. They don't have to worry about you because you're doing great.
