- I could make a quick trip to the store without packing enough gear for an ascent of Mt. Everest.
- getting out of the car to go into the store didn't involve a moderate amount of weight-lifting. (Those car seats get heavy!)
- I didn't make up silly little nicknames for people, like "Punkadoodle".
- getting a shower wasn't a masterful feat of timing.
- the words "time for a change" referred to my hair color.
- the only pink in my house was lemonade.
And you know what? I don't really miss those days at all!
