Alert the media - 40 is the new 65!

When you're twenty, you never think you'll be thirty. And when you're thirty, you think forty is just something people drink out of a paper bag. Then it hits you–like a flu. First, you feel a twinge, then your body starts to ache; and before you know it, you're struggling to stay up past six. Welcome to your forties... It's all downhill from here....more

Cuttin' Ma Herr

So I just went cri-zazy and cut off all my hair this myself. And it turned out awesome, thank goodness!Some of us adjust to the throes of midlife by working out. Others eat. Some take art classes, get a lover, buy a new car. I just got fed up and chopped off all my hair because of this conversation:Me: "Hey honey, I think I'm going to call Kelly and see if she can work me in for a hair cut today."Him: "Really? How much did you spend at the grocery store yesterday?"...more
I'm not brave enough to cut my own hair but will color it to save money. I bet it looks rockin'!more

Apparently There Has Been A Little Confusion About How Old I Will Be On My Birthday This Year...

I can remember it like yesterday when my mother turned 50 years old.  My nephew, who is only four years younger than I, walked into the house and asked my mother, "So, Mam-Maw, how does it feel to be half a century old?"  Ugh...I can only imagine how she must have felt to hear those words come out of his mouth.  And that is exactly why I have decided to be 48 this year for my birthday instead of 50! ...more

Saturday Funnies II

If you have read my blog long enough you know I like to share my Email Gems! I have a group of email buddies and we send each other those jokes that most people choose to delete. It is a shame you delete all of them. A good laugh or even a slight smile does a lot for the soul. Take a moment to giggle! Ear InfectionThis is so true!They always ask at the doctor’s reception why you are there, and you have to answer in front of others what’s wrong and sometimes it is embarrassing....more

The Tables Have Turned

I've been accused by my children on multiple (thousands) occasions of being a helicopter mom.  It's true, I am. Proud of it!!  But I have experienced that unique empty-nester phenomena of having the tables turned.My sons are incredibly (over)protective.  And this morning, something occurred that illustrates it perfectly....more

I am a "No-Neck" Clan Member

As a young girl, my sisters and I always made fun of our aunts “no-necks”.  A condition where your chin and the start of your chest became one.  No definition, no esthetically slim curve and certainly no necklaces.  Jewelry around the neck was simply too much focus on the area, not to mention immanent asphyxiation....more


My co-worker was amazed when I told her that I was 50. She's only a few years older and I told her that we were around the same age. Her comment was that we don't look the same. Now, how am I suppose to react to that? Is that a compliment or not? I don't feel 50 most of the time but when I think of my ex, I seem to feel old. I look at him and he has not aged well. (Truth be told, I'm happy about that. Life with her must not be going well - ha). But I feel like I'm in my 30's....more
