I am Officially OLD!

I just wanted to let you all know this - I became painfully aware of this fact today! No, I am doing just fine without my AOL software. Here is the problem(s). . .

I got new glasses today - Bifocals!!!!! Yes, that's right, BIFOCALS! What an interesting concept - 2 glasses in one. When I manage to look through them the right way I am amazed at how well I see. I have not been able to read without a magnifying glass for a couple of years now and basically have learned how to "guess" at what I was seeing. Now things are much clearer - that is when I am looking through the rght spot at the right time. When I am not, it is as if I have a big smudge on my glasses that I cannot wipe clean. I amnot he most coordinated person so I am hoping I get better at using these soon!

So if that wasn't enough to solidify my placement in the "old age" category, I was doing some stuff online when I took a quick break to take a Dr Oz BMI (Body Mass Index) test. Of course I knew that this would be a test I could not fail and that it would only pump me up. Well, I was halfway right. Sure enough I have a low BMI. They tell me I need to gain 12lbs to get into the normal range. Then they tell me, gotta love this. . .Because you're so underwight your "real age" is much older than your chronilogical age". You have to love hearing that! Then they have a link to take another test to see what your "Real Age" is. Of course I click on the link and take the test. I answered very honestly all of the questions and then waited the 1 - 2 hours they said it would take to get back my results. When I finally got my results back I found that instead of being the almost 45 year old woman I thought I was, I am actually a 57.5 year old woman. I lost 12 years of my life during the reading of an email!

Well it is now 4am and I guess tis old girl should be in bed. If any of you want to take this Real Age test online I have the link for you HERE. Good luck! I hope you all do better than I did. My 72 year old Mother and my 44 year old husband took the test too. I can't wait to hear what their ages actually are. I just hope my Mother does not end up being "younger" than me!!!!
Good night friends!
