I had my regular check-up yesterday at the Doctor's. I don't know about you, but I really hate going to the doctor. I definitely have that white coat syndrome. If I were honest, I'd have to say I think it's mostly because I hate getting on the scale! ha!
Anyway, first thing I walked in, I had to get on the scale and I survived that, but then they wanted to check my height! 5'3 1/2" Really!! Are you kidding me? I've always been 5'4 1/2". I mean, I've never been tall, but now I'm an inch shorter!!! I said something to the nurse and she said it happens to all of us! If I shrink any more, I'll be shorter than my oldest daughter and then she will win! She's always wanted to be taller than me and now there's just about a 1/2" between us. Whatever will I do?
So really, getting older and forgetting things, and having extra aches and pains, and needing glasses, and hot flashes, etc aren't enough! Now I have to get shorter too! I mean, come on, if I have to shrink, why in the world can't it be around instead of up and down. Heaven knows I really need to lose weight. But no! I have to shrink in height instead of weight! Oh well, guess I might as well laugh about it, otherwise, I might start crying! haha
I want to know one thing. Who in the world said these are the "golden years"? Are they crazy!! Tell me, are you shrinking too?
