Can't argue with that one. . . .

The other day I was hounding The General to get packed up for Scout Camp. He continued to dilly dally, so I said, "You know General, I think you are fabulous boy. BUT, sometimes you can be very lazy."
Without missing a beat he retorted, "I'm not lazy. I'm just saving up my energy until I'm in my 30's and really need it."

  1. And I'm saving my energy until I'm in my 70's and really need it. :D

    Smart boy you've got there, Mrs. Nomad!

  2. I'm saving it until I am in my 80s and I really need it. But the truth is, I need it now and I can't seem to find it. I obviously didn't save enough energy when I was younger.

  3. That's because you are no longer in your 20's Mary, and you are moving in HOT weather. I'm not even sure people in their 20's have excess energy in those conditions.

    So, maybe I should slow down a bit and conserve. Next time the boy would like some dinner or say his clothes washed, oh I don't want to waste energy. I'll need some to play with the grandkids. Hmm. . .this theory may work out in my favor. ;)

  4. The physical therapist told me that I would have to remember that I am closer to 60 than 50 and I have to admit that she is right. Why is it I feel just a little past 40?

  5. Probably the same reason I don't feel a day over 30. Not that being 40 is bad, I just can't believe how quickly the years with my children are going.

  7. Ah, so that's where my energy went - to my 30s.

  8. I'm guessing at this point in your life, baby #5 is taking all the energy you are generating. You do have a point though, carrying a baby at 27 was much easier than 36!

  9. I think I used all my energy up in my 20's and 30's. Probably, it's a good thing General is saving his. Today, I don't feel a day older than 50 (I'm 47 w/ an energetic 6 yr old)

  10. So very true. Practice, practice, practice. . .each day I am hopefully one step closer to being what God has planned for me.

  11. I told you that he was a boy genius...he already has figured out that pacing ones self is the key to longevity!
