If she’s a cougar…what am I?

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.


About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!

    I love it! You have to keep this up, like I said radio only quieter. Great way to share your thoughts and life. I will definitely follow it… Keep us posted on the updates.

  2. I like the term Matriarch…lol. We’ve gotten old enough to have learned many of life’s lessons which should qualify us as wise. But the older my two married children and my one unmarried daughter get, the more they are convinced I am antiquated….lol. So I have stopped offering my morsels of wisdom….lol. Instead, I record them at my blog site which they do not generally read. I tell my three granddaughters that the site is for after I have gone to be with the Lord. I laughingly say to them, “After I am gone, all of you will be interested in what I have to say.’ Lol. But it is true. Oh that I could sit and have a conversation with those already passed. Oh that I could have known then what I know now. It is true that life is wasted on the young. 🙂
