Who am I?

Today I took my dad to see the doctor.  Well, I should say: I took him to see ONE of his doctors.  He has FIVE of them.  🙄  

This is what women my age do.  We take care of our parents.  Most women my age take care of their parents and their kids—which makes them the sandwich generation.

I’m wondering…since I don’t have kids, I don’t really fit into the sandwich analogy.  At least not the whole sandwich. 

So does that make me in the fold-over generation? (I have plenty of folds, but let’s save that discussion for another day!)  What is smaller than a sandwich?  A dinner roll?  I could be in the roll generation.  (Again, I have plenty of rolls, but…) 

Well, whatever generation it is, I’m in it.  Just not in the middle.    *sigh*   I’m too old for an identity crisis… 😕  I guess I’m just a good kid.  A very BIG kid.  With gray hair.  And wrinkles.  And folds and rolls… 😆

    I never thought when I had children I would still be taking care of them …well forever. But, my mom is still taking care of us and I had to take her to the doctor yesterday , so I guess it is a circle that never ends. P.S. I really don’t like rolls!! Especially ones with brown age spots on them…

    Cheri, good for you for taking your mom to the doctor! At least she goes… My dad has scaled back to five doctors, whereas my mom didn’t have any.
    Wonder who is going to drag ME to the doctor when I get old? 🙂
