You know, you're a grown-up when...

...uninterrupted thought is a luxury you now treasure.
...you decide that crossing your fingers that there's enough in your checking account to cover the rent is not actually a financial strategy.
...it's become completely impossible for you to ignore a sink full of dirty dishes.
...the perfect job is one you enjoy doing instead of one that impresses people at parties.
...you've finally figured out that if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will.
...the person doling out the vitamins in the house is you.

...you check the headlines more often than (or at least as often as) you update your Facebook profile.
...you finally get the concept: Less is more, especially when it comes to eyeshadow, barrettes, and fingernail embellishments.
...you've learned to say no to people in a way that's every bit as firm as it is friendly.
...you always said that someday you'd go to India/write a novel/learn French cooking/become a dog trainer and you realize that someday has arrived.
...instead of trying to guess what perspicacious means (really sweaty?), you just ask.
...you know that even though your best friend is asking for your advice, she really just wants a chance to vent, so you simply sit there and nod wisely.
...one of your guests offers her help in the kitchen and you take her up on it.

...sleeping in means 9 a.m.
...you realize that enjoying Thanksgiving is more important than making the pie crust from scratch.
...you understand that your vote really matters, even when the numbers say it doesn't.
...your high school reunion become snot simply an opportunity to see how much better you look than everyone else but a time to...oh, forget it. No amount of maturity will prevent you from gloating.
...gossip starts to taste like junk food it is.
...you face the fact that pushing a load of stuff under the bed is not actually a form of de-cluttering.
...you develop a girl crush on Tina Fey.

I heart Tina Fey! I loved her in 'Baby Mama' It was sooo funny! I told David he could get that for me for Christmas. I almost peed my pants both times I watched it!

Hello! and Thanks! Yes, we will be with the navy for 4 years after we Jer graduates! I hope we can move over-seas to Europe or somewhere. And then after 4 years we can decide to stay... but the plan is to head back west and open a practice up. What about you guys?
