McLinky Monday – 5 Things I Can No Longer Do


Well, I like to think that I can do anything I put my mind to, but truth is I’m not as young as I once was.
I’m not sure if there is anything that I just absolutely CAN NOT do, but I probably don’t do them as well as I used to...and shouldn't.

(That’s the understatement of the century.)

I definitely can NOT cheer, jump, kick, tumble, or do stunts like I used to.

I did, however, recently pull off of a stunt while volunteering at the school for PTA.

(excuse the bad photography...we were only equipped with an iPhone)

That’s what us PTAers do in our down time. We relive our old cheerleading days.

I can’t jump on the trampoline for very long. I’ll pee my pants.

Speaking of peeing my pants, I can NOT hold my bladder. I WILL pee my pants. It’s happened.

I can NOT depend on coffee to keep me awake. I think I’ve built up an immunity to it’s effects.

I can NOT just dye my hair just for the sake of a color change…it’s a necessity. I have grey hairs, y'all.

All this talk makes me think of that Toby Keith song…I ain’t as good as I once was, but I’m as good once as I ever was.

What are 5 things you can no longer do?

Stop by The RHOK and join in our linky!

5 things I can no longer do?
I can't stay up all night to write a paper. Thank you Jesus my paper writing days are over.

I can't lose a pound to save my life.

I can't say no to sugar.

I can't be the funnest Mommy at the playground. I used to be so cool when Kaish was little. Now I am a dud.

I can't fit in my clothes from high school.

I also have to dye my gray hair on the regular. I am so old. I have a big fat wrinkle on my forehead. : (

Love your honesty, Cutie! You crack me up! So, are you ready for Breaking Dawn? Can you stand the picture they released just to make us crazy??? If you haven't seen it, stop by my blog, although I am sure you have it as wallpaper on your computer.:) Right? Lori

Okay, yeah, the bladder thing? So not cool, ya know? You really should tell that story you shared in the RHOK comments that one time.... :)

Oh yes, the cheerleading days. Oh how I miss those days. Not really. I couldn't even make the 7th grade team. I apparently sucked at cheer. I think it was because I more interested in flirting with the boys than cheering. I was such a hussie.

I guess I'll link up. I've got 2 hours before the day is over.

Did you visit with Michael? Can we still be friends?

Love your answers!Okay, here are mine. Ditto on the coffee, I sleep like a baby even if I have a cup at night.
Ditto on the hair, grey sucks.
I can't eat gluten.
I can't seem to give up diet coke.
I can't last 3 days with out a Starbucks break!
Okay, that was fun. :)

Loved your 5!
I'm super impressed you all could still pull off a stunt.
I, like IA, never could make the cheerleading squad. The one year I would have made it, I forgot to do my jumps during tryouts. I later found out had I even done ONE jump I would have scored high enough to be a cheerleader. It just wasn't meant to be.

I'm with ya on all those others as well. The gray thing hair wears me slick out.

This too funny, but kudos to you!! I could never do any of those cheerleader moves and I'm still in my 20's :)

I can't stay up past my bedtime and when I do, I can't sleep in either!

brainella said...

You are still rather peppy. I'm sure you could pull off a split if you tried. :) LOL. I love that picture!

Territory Mom said...

Great list. most are true for me too!

Xazmin said...

Jenny! I think you are fantastic!

I pee too! Every time I go running, I piddle. So then I smell like sweat AND pee. It's awesome.

I got grays too. Boooo!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't control her bladder. I peed my pants THIS WEEK! No lie!

Thank God other women who have given birth can understand this. I totally need to dedicate a post to it.

This is a great post! Look at that cheerleading were adorable!

I was the only cheerleader who couldn't do the splits. I had to stand in the middle, arms up in a high V. oy.

I have HAD to color my hair for the past 10 years. I have a big ole chunk of gray that comes up right on top. When my roots start to grown out I look like Cruella DeVille. Or a skunk. It's bad.
