O Is For Older

Oven is not my choice this week.
I use my oven, but don't feel like showcasing it.
Today I am going to discuss my thoughts on getting older. At least for me.
Yeah, I know it's gonna happen to us all, but now it's happening to me!
When I was in my twenties, I use to think getting older was no big deal. At almost thirty I was still getting carded for I.D. at the liquor store. It was a fabulous feeling!!! Hard to think about getting older as a bad thing when everyone still acts like you're young.
Even thirty was a piece of cake.
I know, it sounds like I'm bragging now... but you ladies know it is gonna come to a crashing halt right?!
And it does!
My dad died when I was 32.
By the time I was 33 I started to really see signs of aging and stress. Lines beginning to crease my forehead that weren't there before. Tons of grey hair, so much so, the dye didn't cover it for long.
Now, pushing forty, I can't walk as far without my buttcheeks hurting for three days afterward. I have tons of lines and grey hairs, and boys and girls, I have hit menopause!
Lucky me!
So now throw in hot flashes and my beyond bitchy self, whaddaya get???

Freda getting older.

God I miss the days of getting carded.......

  1. I like not to think about age but the numbers keeps getting higher and there's nothing to do about it but it's good to just vent about it.

    hope you have a great day.

    1. It's not my birthday yet. This is just my thoughts as I age and the balloon shot said it all for me.

      Appreciate the wishes though, but save them for December. :-)

      Many thanks for the compliment too!

  4. Best to forget about ageing - there's nothing we can do about it!

    Such an interesting *O* post!

  5. My husband played a trick on me when I started getting hot flashes and asked me who I was fantasizing about. Somehow, I always had an answer. Eventually, he told me it was a trick, but it was way more fun.

  6. Getting older can be overwhelming but it isn't all bad...

    Eventually you can get extra discounts for being a senior citizen... (((winkwink)))

    Menopause was definitely not one of my favorite parts of aging though!

    Hang in there... A lot of things improve with age!

    Thanks for linking to the letter "O"...

    Outstanding job!

    A+

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
