Reminiscing

For some reason, I’ve been reminiscing about my youth.  I’ve been thinking about what I thought my future would look like.

My life today is nothing like I thought it would be, but that’s not a bad thing.

I have accomplished a lot of things and experienced a lot of things.  I’ve enjoyed my life, even though it hasn’t always been easy.

The good and the bad times all brought me to where I am now, and I am happy about that.

New Meters

The utility company came to my neighborhood and replaced everyone’s meters.

The new meters will send information to the utility company using wi-fi, so they don’t have to come out and read them anymore.

Mom and I went to look at the new meter and I noticed it had a black button.

Me:  I wonder what this button does.

Mom:  I don’t know, but you probably shouldn’t touch it.  You might mess something up.

I pressed the button and nothing happens, so I pressed it five more times.

Mom:  What is wrong with you?

Me:  I don’t know.  I see a button and I have to press it.

My First Pair of Reading Glasses

I recently bought my first pair of reading glasses.

I am not sure how I feel about this purchase.  I am 46 years old, but I don’t feel much different from how I felt 20 years ago.  Maybe so much time has past that I don’t remember what it felt like to be in my twenties.  Maybe I would be shocked if I was able to feel the difference for one day.

That’s how life goes.  Things are always changing and nothing ever stays the same.
