Hello... Summer...Where the Hell are you?!
I would have said Spring, but I'm in Ohio, we don't seem to get spring anymore. Just like smooth, flawless skin, and perky boobs, it seems to be a thing of the past.

Oh well........I guess it could always be worse.

At least that's what I thought a couple weeks ago until I did the ultimate in stupid things and bought a magnifying make-up mirror.

HOLY HELL!!!
What was I thinking??!!

Why would I have ever even considered such a thing at my age???
Now I know why our eyes tend to fail and we don't see things as well as we used to when we were younger. It's Mother Natures way of being kind.

Yeap, the bitch who gives us periods, cramps, labor pains, PMS, wider hips when we have children,saggy boobs, hot flashes and all the other fun aspects of being a woman does have some empathy on us.

Well that, or she knows we are going to someday do something so we can see better and she is going to get a really good laugh at our reaction of shock and disbelief.
The heartless bitch is rolling on the floor laughing at mine.

So my question is...where did all of these wrinkles and white hairs come from and who lied on my birth certificate about how old I really am?

Okay, maybe I should just go visit Miss Clairol and buy some putty.... does it come in flesh tone?

Ok m'dear....input from a bonified AARP geriatic member. I looked at your age....it's about right for that "OMG what's happening" reaction. But trust me...you are NOT old but yes, you're experiencing changes.

I suggest...

1. inventory
2. prioritize
3. make a list of needed actions and products for said needs
4. buy needed cases and holders for said products
5. enjoy all of the above
6. process of elimination...works/doesn't work
7. redo inventory every year on birthday
8. prioritize accordingly
9. (most important) scrap mirror
10. Embrace what is happening and just enjoy it.

(time frame for above...about 10-15 yrs.)

Better a has been than a never was. What Mother Nature bestows, Father Time will reclaim.

Crow's feet become wrinkles and titties become like last week's party balloons.

It amazes me at how many buxom ladies who may have been hot when Carter was Prez over 30 years and 50 pounds ago post pics with tits or cleavage showing former perky boobies drooping down to the bottom rib. Incredibly, they actually believe that they look sexy...The Emperors New Clothes in the 21st century.

But then, again, there are always the bullshitting guys who will tell them what they want to hear...and they will believe them

Aging definitely has it's pitfalls with the passing of each decade we are fortunate to experience.

Wow and Softie understand the wisdom of living a full life, not having regrets and embracing the good stuff maturity can bring.

I may not be 'in love' with my looks now, but I'm healthier that I was a few years ago and feel better. I don't give a rip what anyone else thinks, I'm just enjoying this time and making the most of it.

You are entering territory which can allow you to be more honest with yourself and do things you haven't ever thought about doing... go for it, you will be amazed what can happen. Oh and toss out the bitch of a mirror!

If I heard it once, I heard it a thousand times...Why can't people judge based upon what is on the inside, not on looks! Well, age becomes the great equalizer because unless you have money, you aren't going to get the good looking hottie after the age of fifty. You will probably be limited to attracting the physical equivalent of yourself in the opposite sex...and nobody is hot!

I'm only 44 & jump sometimes when I look in the mirror. Age is the only thing that goes up & never comes down but living life to the fullest everyday is the only way to live.

I don't embrace those darn things..I curse them when I see them. Gray? What gray? My good "friend" Clairol says I don't have any gray.

Mine too Lisa. I found some on sale just before Christmas and considered buying all they had of it...lol
One for daytime and one for at night, Kat.......

I can't remember my Grandma having anything but all white hair from the time I was very little. But she was already 61 when I was born. I'm blaming the white hairs I've now got on my daughter moving back in with me during her divorce.
I never had any until after I turned 50. One of my best friends does my hair and she looked so she could get back at me for finding hers.....

Thanks, Bonnie.... I'm really over most of the shock and being upset. Life is still good, for the most part and I'm hoping I have a lot of time left to live it. Sitting and crying over this would only waste it and probably make the wrinkles swell more...

but living life to the fullest everyday is the only way to live.
AMEN!!! Good advice Flav...

You're not getting old.... you're just getting better!!!!
Okay, Pink, I have to have your address to send you the check for writing this....
Seriously, thank you.

there are always the bullshitting guys who will tell them what they want to hear...and they will believe them
Bruce, Griz calls me beautiful or sexy all the time.....and he actually sounds like he honestly means it....However, I don't think he has ever said it when I have had no clothes on.... lmao

Oh and toss out the bitch of a mirror!
I told my oldest grand daughter that she can have it so she'll know I'm telling the truth when I tell her a slight amount of lipgloss is good, she doesn't need 2 inches of it.

Aging definitely has it's pitfalls with the passing of each decade we are fortunate to experience.
Peachy, you are so right. I am quite fortunate to see this many decades as my Mom died when she was barely 42.

My good "friend" Clairol says I don't have any gray.
That's what good friends are for, Dawn.

Thankfully crows feet and such wont hit me for a long time
I'm really happy for you, Kim...but did you have to pick right now to remind me of that.... .....J/K

I have found washing my face in the goat's milk soap I make and using a little dab of olive oil around the eyes at night works wonders. I have a few crow's feet since I have been sick over the last year but thank goodness no major wrinkles yet. As for the gray hairs I have a few and each one of them has one of my kid's name on it. And since I am now a grandmother I have a whole new generation adding to the collection. Not planning on covering them up. I earned every last one of those gray hairs.

I have always heard..."pretty is as pretty does"...well hell...my name was never "pretty"! HA! LOL!...I bet Bruce would tell some older than god hag that she was pretty iffin she was to blow him a few times! ...There is a circus going on in my head and I am the lead clown! I do what I can to get ready for the big tent everyday and am only concerned when others don't laugh at me. That's when I will throw it all away, drop the big tent and lay down and die....but, in the mean time it is my circus and I love it.

Awww, how completely sweet.... Thanks cardplayer, and welcome to the blogs.

So have I, RJ, but I think that I'm still going to cover them.at least for now.

I have had some gray coming in since my mid 20's.
Shawn, you're a guy and guys can pull it off without any problems. Men look distinguished, notice one grey or white hair on a woman and she is instantly just getting older by most.
