One of those online tests

I get a Kim Komando newsletter every day, and a few days ago she had a link for calculating your lifespan.

It says I'll live to be 95.  Well, then.  I should have 40 years left.  So I had better get stitching.

  1. HA! I just took the test and it says I will live to be 93. Oh please don't let that be true.

  3. Interesting test. I will be 97. I still have 50+ years. I think I will be fine with stash but not so confident in the 401k plan.

  5. Crikey, Lee, not just stitching, you have to go shopping to make sure you have enough stash to use in all those years, lol!

  6. I did it and it said I will live to 94. And if I lose weight, add six more years on so 100. I think I will stay fat. I don’t want to live to 100 !!!

  8. Only 80 for me, but given my current (minor-ish) health issues, not a surprise. But it definitely incentive to work hard at making myself better.

  9. Well, well, well, I'm going to live until I'm 97...and I only slightly lied on one question! So, let's back that up to 95 because even that's LONG. So, I figure I can slow down on my stitching because maybe I really don't have a lifetime supply of stash and I'm certainly going to need whatever money I have for my elder care!

    Let's get nursing home rooms near each other, OK?

  11. My favorite cartoon shows a crinkly wrinkled bent-over old man sitting on an exam table, holding a cane and clutching a fistful of prescriptions. His Doctor is telling him-"You know those extra 8years you exercised and ate well to live for? Well, this is them.";-)

  12. 99 even with all the extra weight. I blame my grandmothers. Let's hope I don't get the arthritic thumbs. (My two grandmothers were walked into my sister's stateside reception together. You should have seen it. Maybe I'll write about it.)

  13. Ha - 87! That gives me 44 more years to stitch! I'm middle aged! And I bet if I lost all that weight it would go higher!

    Thanks for sharing this - it was fun!

  14. Well, i have always said I aspire to be 95. This is mainly due to Joan, she taught me to play bridge about 10 yrs ago, she was very active right up to 2 days before she passed and she was 95. So,that is why I chose that age, I want to live as long as I can do the things I love so much. But, after taking the test, 85 is my plight. I can gain a year here and a half year here, but do I want to give up those things for just another year, no! I hope it is wrong, but if I can stitch to the end I will be one happy woman.
