For those of you who know me, you know that I never complain about my age. I have always said that you're only as old as you act and as long as you continue to do the things you love and keep yourself in the condition you've always been in... age shouldn't matter. I guess it helps that for most of my life people have always thought I was much younger than I am. I remember trying on dresses for my bridesmaids to wear for my wedding and the sales people in the store thought I was buying a prom dress. And for a very long time I was always carded at bars. In work situations, I used to make a point of telling people how old I was so that they'd take me seriously. Having them think I was 10 years younger than I was was not a good thing when I was making a presentation. Sadly, however, this has not happened in a very long time. And there is no longer a look of surprise in a person's eye when I tell them my age. I still hope when I tell people that I have 2 kids they'll say, "YOU have 2 kids? You look way too young to have 2 kids"! I guess my drab complexion, exhausted bags under my eyes and lack of sparkle in my eye on most days give away my true identity as tired mother of two.
