A quick hello

I went to a parent meeting at school. Sitting there thinking that “oh don’t they all look at least ten year older than me” only to realize home in the elevator going up to my place, staring at my own face that:
1. I think every other parent, that have the good manner to drift their thoughts while the teachers are speaking about very important stuff and who are as ego as me,  think like that.
2. Apparently and apparently very obvious I’m also older.
When I got home I shuffled through some old papers finding an old order of the wooden floor to our cabin. I have been angry with the company since I ordered hard brushed planks with a heavy structure but I simply can’t find any structure at all. Well now I found the recipe and they have simply send me the wrong floor. This I realize about 3 years too late which makes me even angrier at my self for not checking it properly. So stupid.
Today I also went for a run during lunch and I felt really strong. Really, really strong. I put the Greyhound song on repeat and ran like a Greyhound horse. Ran straight to the store and bought a new pair of running shoes. Of course the where ugly. Why do most of them looks like a alien been cross bred with a robot but then not in a good way?
Now I’m sitting here with hiccups while my husband thinks it’s me crying. (It’s not I’m just in another room with hiccups).
If you wonder about the image above. Well I do too.

well, there must be something in it. Me, I can honestly tell you, I always feel ‘younger’ than other parents, younger than other people in the street or in the bus, though, apparently, they are my age, sometimes even younger then me.
I even happen to have this kind of ‘yes sir/madam’ feeling when I speak to my children’s friends’ parents. Should I see a psychiatrist about that?

I was speaking to a friend of my mother’s a few years back and she said something that is very simple but very wise: we always stay who we are on the inside even when the outside changes. I still feel like my 20-26 year old self. I still look young but I will turn 43 this summer. It’s both great and a pain. I get carded when buying wine and asked if I am buying full price or student price when buying metro refills which sounds great but on the flip side I get taken less seriously in my professional life (maybe its the converse and mint green nail polish). But it just makes me work harder so I guess it’s all good !-)

Oh you all write such a clever insights!
I remember my dad told me about seeing an older guy in a window- the reflection – just to realize it was him. I guess like you said. We feel one way on the inside and maybe the looks wont go with it. It’s also interesting Theresa what you said about not being taken as serous because of the young looks. Somehow I feel in a very sad way that it’s also a curse of a woman. Or we are too young or too old…
kisses to you all thanks for commenting!
