It’s my birthday month! Yes I am a true Scorpio. All I can actually think about is 50 years old is just around the corner!!!! How scary for me. I was just 25 it seems. (Boy that sure passed by fast!) When life was all about drinking, going to clubs and having fun. Ok, I was never a club person. But anyway, my 20’s was so much better than my 40’s. I could move faster and certainly think faster lol. Here is the only pic I have of my cake. Sorry I cut it. It was so good.
So what do I have to look forward to this year leading up to 50 in five years? More arthritis, more forgetfulness, buying stronger reading glasses, buying more BenGay, ooh can’t forget buying tums to carry in my freaking purse! Yes the weirdest foods give me heartburn now like my favorite pizza bought from anywhere, also making sure I don’t get hurt while sleeping!!! Yes, it is possible now. I wake up with a nice gift of the stiff neck or lovely back pain. Ah getting older, how grand. George Thomas via Compfig
Is it just me or does every woman at this age go through hot flashes, night sweats (even when it is cold), and talking and forgetting what the heck they were talking about in the middle of the conversation, and last but not least drum roll – going to the another room in the house to look for something and forgetting what it is you are looking for!
Now I can start researching and buying all those anti-aging creams to keep away the wrinkles that we all know are coming. Especially if you can’t afford a Beverly Hills surgeon. Now, is the time for deep meditation and exercise. That way I won’t end up with the flabby arms and butt taken down by gravity. Love ya gravity.
My furbaby is around the same age I am now in dog years. I can also see the how it is affecting him. He doesn’t see like he used to and I think he is losing some of his hearing. Or he could just be ignoring me lol. Shih Tzu’s are very stubborn.
Yep, that’s your 40’s and what you have to look forward to! Don’t forget AARP is knocking on your door. But I hear the discounts are out of this world. What was turning 45 like for you?
