These old bones are starting to creak, baby!
Yes, I am now in my 40s and yes, my joints definitely hurt more than they used to. And I like to go to bed at 9:30 every night.
Am I now considered to be officially old?
I think we all know the answer to that question, but I’d prefer if you kept it yourself, okay? We can all be polite even though I’m now pretty much a senior citizen…
If you’re in your 40s, we think these tweets will make you laugh…and cry…
1. What the hell do you think you’re doing?!?!
Slow down there, Grandma.
Welcome to your 40s where you go into a fit of rage when random cars use your driveway to turn around.

2. This is what life is all about!
It’s pretty exciting, isn’t it?
"Who said your 40s aren't full of magic," I say to myself as I stand in the cleaning aisle swooning over sponges that are in my favorite color.

3. You’re really hitting your stride.
What a time to be alive!
in my 20s: hiking, painting
in my 30s: board games, travel
in my 40s: singing the wrong numbers in the lyrics to "Seasons of Love" from Rent to infuriate my daughter

4. Well, this is new…
Did I bump into the kitchen counter yesterday?
Welcome to your 40s.
You will never again know where that bruise came from.

5. There’s no way that’s happening anymore.
It’s too loud in here!
Early 20s: I want to yell over the music at a bar for five hours and then get a quesadilla.
Early 40s: I can make a quesadilla at home.

6. What are you still doing up at midnight?
You should have been in bed hours ago!
I kind of want to have a beer, but it’s midnight and I already brushed my teeth.
(This might be the most mid-40s thing I’ve ever tweeted.)

7. I can’t see!
What’s wrong with that guy?!?!
Welcome to your 40s – you now think every car has its brights on.

8. It just isn’t fair.
But it sure is true.
Your 20s: stop eating bread for 1 day, lose 5 pounds
Your 40s: stop eating for 1 day, gain 5 pounds

9. Booyah! Livin’ it up!
You gotta love rebates!
20s: Pay for drinks with change found between the couch cushions.
40s: Pay for drinks with the rebate card we got with the new furnace.

10. You’re telling me.
I’m right there with you.
In my 40s my definition of an EPIC PARTY is four different cheeses on the antipasto tray.

11. You gotta take care of that back.
One night can ruin your whole month.
Your teens: I’ll just sleep on the floor.
Your 20s: I’ll just sleep on the futon.
Your 30s: I’ll just sleep on the couch.
Your 40s: Is this tempurpedic? I can only sleep on tempurpedic. Preferably sleep number 37.

12. This is a very complicated process.
And you need a team of people to help you out.
Welcome to your late 40s it now takes 20 minutes and a rope pulley system to turn over in bed
