I Miss the Olden Days

Ok, so I wasn't really around in the olden days. But I miss the days I was around in: the 70s and 80s. Everything was so simple. I only had to think about which tube socks to wear with my silk shorts, and what color yarn to put in my ponytails.

There were no iPhones to check twenty times a day. No Facebook where you go from ten real-life friends to 300 cyber-friends who you never see in person.

We didn't have 500 tv channels to choose from, Netflix or Blockbuster.

My parents didn't run us all over the place. We played outside all day long and came in when the streetlights came on. I remember my mom watching a lot of soap operas. I'm sure she did more than that, like cleaning and cooking. Not to mention taking care of us.

Sometimes I wish there was no such thing as the internet, Facebook, email...It's all such a time-sucker. I asked my husband the other day if he thought I'd get much if I sold my iPhone. He said not to do it because then I'd always be using his to check email and Facebook. He's right.
