The Pain of Getting Older - Ahhhhhhhhhh!

It is amazing the difference a year can make in a life. Every year, no matter how much I try to keep it from happening, "things" start "going." Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! Every year, it becomes harder to get/stay in shape. Every year, there is more grey hair to contend with, more wrinkles and cellulite, there are more age spots. In other words, I do not like this aging thing one bit, and I am not embracing any of it!

Which is why I was so thrilled when Brady told me the boys at his Dutch Bros. coffee stand thought I was younger than I really am. I feel so old, these days! I am an older mother, I  know this. But I didn't realize how hard it would be to see all the younger moms looking so damned good while my ass grows a size every year and my face resembles a prune more every day. When Brady told me his Dutch Bros. guys thought I was pretty, I was thrilled to my toes! I'm not that narcissistic, I promise, but don't we all long to be complimented? Every now and then?

Truthfully, this blog post is narcissistic, and I'm sure you think I am fishing for compliments. I assure you I am not, and I loathe nothing more than when I see people doing that very thing daily on Facebook. The point I am trying to make is that it is truly hard to get older, and it is also hard not to miss the "old days" of blissful youth. And I think we all like to be told we're attractive every now and then, don't we? Besides, today is my birthday  - I'm allowed to whine just a little bit, don't you think? I don't mind the knowledge I have acquired over the years, I just don't like looking older, including the aches and pains in my joints and muscles.

Yah. So there! The next question is, what am I going to do do about it? Stay tuned to the rest of my life for more exciting adventures in THE SAGA OF QUEEN B GETTING OLD - ER...
And this is me, in all my Old Age Glory, wearing my AWESOME NEW AEROSMITH t-shirt that I LOVE from my Nicoley! Thank you so much - I don't know how you read my mind, but I have been dying for an Aerosmith t-shirt for quite some time. And I am THRILLED to have this one! And someday, Steven Tyler is going to sign it for me - yes! Because I have SENT IT OUT INTO THE UNIVERSE! So thank you Nicoley (I love you!) and Happy Birthday to me!
