No…that’s not the temperature today (although it feels like it!)…I think this is the personal decade where you realize that things aren’t quite what they used to be

Little things like…having to pluck eyebrows a heck of a lot more than you used to. Seriously, I never had to pluck at all until my late 20s – and only a stray one here and there at that point. So not the case anymore! And dangit – they keep sneaking up on me.

Or…weight control. In High School I had quite the bod (even though I thought I was fat then…if only I could go back and smack myself!) in my 20s stuff started to slip. 30s? Forget about it. (Although I suspect a twin pregnancy and then a singleton one has a lot to do with that…)

And then there’s the big things…like OH MY GOD I HAVE 3 KIDS!!!!

Or…home ownership and marriage.

What really blows my mind though is when I stop to think about ‘personal decades’ of people “way back when” … Seriously…it had to start in their 20s (and earlier!!) for people back then. There’s no way I would have been prepared for all of this when I was in my 20s. Hell…I’m not sure I’m ready for it all now 😉
