Oh my aching.... I guess it's my knees. Other days it's my back or my feet or my hips. Ugh, getting old is hell. The other day my daughter asked me this question: "Why, when grown-ups get down to play on the ground, do their knees go creeeeaaaak?".

I used to think I was smart for waiting to have kids until I was past, I think my mother might have had the right idea in having all of her kids before she turned 26. Because I sure do feel old and I know I don't bounce back the way I used to when I was in my 20s.

But, seeing that my 401(k) is in the toilet and Social Security won't exist by the time I'm eligible, I will need to work forever. And since I'll never retire, maybe I'll never truly get old.

And maybe I'll get that knee replacement soon!
