25 Signs You've Grown Up…

by Stephanie Casher on March 15, 2006

Alright, so I’ve been getting complaints from my regular readers that I don’t post frequently enough, lol, so I’m going to try to find a better balance :-) Here’s something I came across that I thought was cute. I’ve bolded the items that apply to me, to see how grown up I really am ;-)

25 Signs You’ve Grown Up…

1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can’t smoke any of them. LOL!
2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question. (Well, if that’s all that’s available…)
3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge. (Granted, this only became true in the past year ;-)
4. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
5. You hear your favorite song in an elevator. (I was just telling Meg that grocery store music is the BOMB!)
6. You watch the Weather Channel.
7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of “hook up” and “break up.” (Sad but true…)
8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14. (I manage to get more than 14 though, lol)
9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as “dressed up.” (They don’t???)
10. You’re the one calling the police because those %&@# kids next door won’t turn down the stereo. (SO me.)
11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you. (though my mom has been traumatizing us with Sex Jokes since we were pre-teens, lol)
12. You don’t know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.
13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.
14. You feed your dog/cat Science Diet instead of McDonald’s leftovers.
15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt. (Sleeping anywhere but a bed makes my back hurt!)
16. You take naps. (Never been much of a napper)
17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.
18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.
19. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.
20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer “pretty good stuff.” (Dude, the top of the line wine Carlo Rossi will NEVER go out of style!!!)
21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time. (I’m working on it…)
22. “I just can’t drink the way I used to” replaces “I’m never going to drink that much again.”
23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work. (LOLOLOLOLOL)
24. You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.
25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate them instead of asking “Oh S*$# what the hell happened?”

26: You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn’t apply to you and can’t find one to save your sorry old butt. Then you forward it to a bunch of old pals & friends ’cause you know they’ll enjoy it & do the same.

Haha, so maybe I’m not TOTALLY Grown up yet… And while I miss the simpler days of childhood….

I’m loving my adulthood!!!
