Approaching 30... not so gracefully

I'll be 30 in just a few a weeks and I'm having somewhat of a hard time with it. My twenties will be history, and I will be beginning the start of a new decade. Several months ago I was sitting in the car, waiting for the kids to get out of school, when I noticed a grey hair. I plucked that sucker so fast and frantically began a search of what led to countless more. Needless to say it was an awakening moment.

I'm getting older.

Be forewarned -- it does NO good plucking them... I should buy stock in Clairol... Anyway, my hair is not the only thing that age is taking it's toll. I can't walk these days without something popping. It's so funny, because when I was younger, this was just something I didn't think would ever happen to me. Aches and pains for almost no reason at all. Getting tired easily. I know I certainly took my energy level that I once had SO for granted. If only to have the energy of a 4 year old again! I'm hoping that once the dreaded day of the 30th comes and goes, these feelings will pass with the day. I hope to reach a point where I'm ok with growing old gracefully... until then, thank God for great creams, hair dye, good bras, and support hose!

I'm slightly behind you, but will be 30 before long too. Plan something fun for the day - don't let yourself get too caught up in the number. I am planning a girl's trip with my best friend to somewhere new for my 30th!

Don't sweat it. I just turned 30 and I don't feel any different than I did at 25. Big stinking deal.
Hmm stock in Clairol may not be a bad idea though!
