This whole ‘almost 50’ gig is somewhat confusing to me. Have browsed the internet searching for blogs by ‘middle aged’ woman. Wait a minute, ‘middle aged’? That stinks. So I tryed ‘midlife’… so negative sounding. Just doesn’t have the perky upbeat sound to it that I’m looking for. So where do you browse…40something?, 50something? What do we call ourselves when we’re well over 40, but not dead! Nothing I found sounded positive. In fact, you don’t even want to know the things I found when I went to the slang dictionary! Did you know that a cougar, is under 40…after that they become jaguars?! And that’s if you’re out at the bar, searching for young men. WHAT ABOUT ME? Married, mom, grammy, cute, pudgy, happy…49 yrs, 7 months, 9 days…and darn proud of it! (So we have a few issues…that we’ll talk about later!)
And hey, the photo on the header is looking right out my front door. It’s heaven. One week in Pennsylvania, living in our 5th wheel. And that’s another story.
