You know how you're always trying to make yourself a more grown-up type person? By you, I mean me, but really, if people in general would just follow my rules, I think everyone would be happy. Wait, that's a whole different issue..
Anyway, there are things about myself that I think I need to start doing so that I can feel like a grown-up, but I just can't seem to get myself there. Maybe one day I'll be able to:
Fill up the washer fluid in my car. I love to use it to clean my windshield, but when the car tells me it's low, I stop using it until I get my oil changed and someone else can take care of that. Or the husband does it. I'm sure I could, theoretically, take care of this, but really? It's pretty dirty and I already wash my hands enough.
Open a credit card bill without wincing. This is not because I am a profligate spender, but rather because during an extended period of unemployment, we ended up charging things like food and gas. Still, I would love to be in a position where I can be a big girl and open the bill and not lose my cool. Maybe that's less being a grown-up than it is being completely apathetic. Hmmm.
Actually taking care of the back corner of the yard. Which has become a complete jungle. Seriously. Woodland creatures are scampering around in there. I know it wouldn't take too long to get it taken care of, but I feel like someone else is responsible. Some grown-up who is better skilled at getting in and doing what needs to be done. I wonder what my mom is doing?
Confess, friends, what would make you feel like a grown-up?
