This Is Old Age

this is old age abla

Yesterday I was looking forward all day to getting together with a local friend that I haven’t seen since early December. We were going to enjoy some food, wine, and craft together. I was excited! (this is old age)

Before I could enjoy a relaxing night with her, I had to get through my hectic day. Work was crazed and I had to rush straight to a salon appointment to fix my heinous roots. I then popped into the liquor store to pick up some wine and sped home to tidy up. For some reason, my day had exhausted me but I was ready to pull it together and have a fun night. (this is old age)

I had 20 minutes to clean up the kitchen, set the table, make some appetizers, take Maggie out, and put on some music. Phew! With a little sweat, I was able to get everything ready. My craft date friend was due to arrive in about 4 minutes, so I sat down and texted my other friend, informing her that I would  not be watching Pretty Little Liars live so to not text me about it. We take this very seriously. (this is old age)

Those four minutes passed. And then another 10. I sat and twiddled my thumbs. I hate when people are late. I just sit there thinking of all the things I COULD be doing. Pretty soon she was 30 minutes late. I was annoyed. (this is old age)

30 minutes is my usual “Ok, I’ve waited long enough I better call and see if she’s okay”. But something stopped me. My gut told me to check my email first.

That’s when I found out that she was due to come over TOMORROW, not tonight. My mind is officially lost.

Yep, this is old age! Folks, it’s all down hill from here!

At least I can watch Pretty Little Liars and live text to my BFF about it. Oh, and there’s wine. Here’s to turning 31 in one month!

  • haha well at least now you have everything ready for your friend to come over!!! andddd you got to watch PLL, so I’d call this whole thing a win 😉

    Have fun on your craft date!!

    • kwalshmac

      Yes, very true! It was just one of those days I simply felt O L D. Excited for a craft date? Tired after a “normal day? O L D !

  • Haha, you’re just super prepared! And I’m with you, I hate it when people are late!

    • kwalshmac

      Yes, super super prepared! People who are chronically late are the worst – I get so mad when I rush around to be on time and then sit and wait.

  • Haha, I have been there too. Can’t keep anything straight anymore. Maybe it’s just because we’re busy women with lots on our minds and plates, not that we’re old:) Yeah, let’s go with that.

    • kwalshmac

      Yes, please, let’s blame it on us being busy 🙂 If you would have told my 20 year old self that I was tired after a “normal” day, was excited to craft, and that I’d be so forgetful at this age I’d say peace out to growing up.

  • Jessa

    I’m turning 31 in July. I’m glad that you watch PLL too. 🙂

    • kwalshmac

      YES! So happy that there are other women my age watching teen drama shows. It’s soooo good! 🙂

  • Ohhhh I hate it when that happens!! At least you got to watch PLL 🙂

    • kwalshmac

      yes, at least, it was nice to have a random free night to do whatever!

  • Haha this is funny, but I hate when people are late too! Being late has to be my biggest pet peeve.

    • kwalshmac

      Totally! Especially when I plan my whole day around being on time!

  • haha that is really funny but I feel your pain…that happens to me often. I also hate it when people are late, I hate waiting for someone and i consider it completely rude. This is my first time on your blog & consider me a follower! I am hosting my first linkup for Thankful Thursday, I would appreciate it if you linked up with me!

    • kwalshmac

      Hey Alisia! I’m glad I’m not alone – also late people, ugh! I have one friend that is chronically at least 1 hour late for events. She knows it too and just can’t help it. So now, we all just plan around her knowing that she will be late. Congrats on your first link up! I already had my Oscar post for today scheduled, but I’d love to link up next week!

  • Oh I hear you on this!!! Sometimes I actually forget how old I am. 🙁 haha

    • kwalshmac

      Oh yes, somedays I wake up and still feel like I’m 25 and then I get tired and need a nap after two glasses of wine and remember my real age. haha

  • haha I have so done things similar to that too. But at least you got everything put together in “time” Hopefully the next day you actually enjoyed your day lol

    • kwalshmac

      haha Yes I just couldn’t help making fun of myself. These things are happening way too often lately haha.
