Got a Little Carly Simon Playing in My Head…

You’re so vain…you probably think this blog is about you, don’t ya, don’t ya…LOL

Actually, it all started earlier in the day, when my youngest child said (from across the room, I might add), “mom, what’s that spot on your face? in between your eyes?” My response, “what spot?” And then I took a look in the mirror! Now is when I insert, I really didn’t think I was a vain person…BUT
there, right between my eyes, was a huge new wrinkle! “What is that? Where did it come from?” “It’s a wrinkle, a monster wrinkle!”

I had to think back, what have I done wrong in the past 24 hrs. Did I sleep wrong, distort my face in a fit of laughter? Where in the world did this come from? And then Carly started singing in my mind. “You’re so vain…”

And I knew it. This sucker is not leaving. It will be there tomorrow, and the day after that. And I now have one more badge of honor to wear right smack dab in the middle of my face! And that’s the life of being 49andcounting.


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!

    this is your mother at Davids reading all your blogs and I am glad I taught you to clean potties right. Wonder if we will have to in heaven cause Gaga will be checking us out. Hate to point out that my proofreading genes caught JUDGMENT misspelled.

    Damn this teeny keyboard when I am used to my split one! You ARE SUCH a talented writer and so funny.

    David found out he has a headache from chocolate so guess who has to suffer and eat it for him. By the time I get to Shannons, I may be a size larger, but mothers have to suffer. Back to my books. Love you.
