Signs that I am officially "old and boring"

1. I got a call from a school nurse today.

2. It's Friday night, we actually have child care*, and we are spending the evening cleaning our house. We could have gone out to eat, but opted for takeout instead so we didn't have to get "dressed up."

3. I actually like to watch Hannah Montana. That either makes me young and hip or old and boring, and I think we all know it's not the first.

I'm sure there are more ways, but my old and boring brain is too focused on cleaning to think of them. I'm sure those of you who know me can come up with a few.

*Matt and Cori, you have not been replaced as our favorite babysitters--Ethan's mother's day out just had date night :)

UPDATE: We are cleaning the house, and we have the Sirius radio on our tv tuned to 90s hits. Roxette just came on! Hold on tight, you know she's a little bit dangerous...

ANOTHER UPDATE: They just said Color Me Badd is up next!

SERIOUSLY!: No Diggity just came on! I am in 90s nerd heaven! Play on, playa!

We are sitting at home on a Friday night compiling a list of law firms that I want to apply to... And we're fixing to go to bed. We're old, too (but not as old as you!)!

Nancy Bunch... you are too funny! If you think you are old and boring then Matt and I must be ancient! We are sitting here on a Friday night just praying that one of the 70 firms that is going to apply to hires him. Not only that, but we are counting down the minutes to 8:00, so we can go to bed!!! We figured 7:20 was too early! So...

Thanks Nancy - I'm going to be singing this all night -

She knows what it takes to make ends meet, the eyes ...

I feel you. Last night we were all excited over the new episode of Battlestar Galactica. In comparison to past Friday nights, say about 15 years ago (omg....did I just say 15 years ago and that ended up being when we were in college!!!)...never mind...I can't finish...I feel too old.

After I got Rachel to sleep, I tried to finish watching Dr. Zhivago which I'd started while ironing during her nap this afternoon, but wound up falling asleep!

Tick tock you don't stop :)

Well,my best count has you at like 32! and no spring chicken any more! Welcome to married life! Oh, how sweet it is! Who were the people you were talking about listening to? Never heard of any of them! Guess they were popular back when I had 3-5 kids at home and couldn't wait to get to bed at 8:00!
