License for a reality check

I renewed my driver's license by mail a couple of weeks ago, and it arrived today. I don't know why it shocked me so much to see "Expires 2019" on there, but it did. I mean, I knew I was renewing for 10 years, and obviously 2009+10=2019, but I guess I hadn't consciously done the math. I can't say that it bothers me over much to know that I will be 43 when this thing expires. So what is bothering me? That my son will be on the verge of getting his learner's permit when it expires! That will be the summer before he turns 15!!! I don't think I'm ready for this.
Currently feeling: what just happened here?


  1. I know what you mean Erin! I just keep telling myself, "yeah, but 10 more years is a long way off." No I'm not really convinced either, but it helps a little. ;)

  2. Yeah but since they say on the Discovery channel that the world is ending in 2012 it won't get the chance to expire right? :P
