I jokingly refer to myself as an "old broad" - and will allow my husband to lovingly refer to me as his "old lady", BUT I'm still kicking and screaming about getting older.
When I look in the mirror, I thankfully don't see some old broad looking back at me. However, my aches and pains and the length of time it now takes me to get up and at 'em tells me for sure that I'm no spring chicken anymore. As a matter of fact - one of my chickens has already left the nest.
My brain thinks I'm 20ish, if that. I am far from the example of maturity that should properly be portrayed amongst the young ones. At least I have fun.
On Facebook last week I posted a note to Mother Nature, basically telling her to kiss off! Here I am - on the downside of 40 - yeah I went there - psychotically running out to buy a pregnancy test because Mother Nature and Auntie Flo have decided to screw with me.
No, no -- GOD NO - I am NOT preggers! Believe me, you'd hear my screams from every corner of the planet if I were. Not that I don't love the wee ones, but I tried like a mad woman to be preggers & hold a pregnancy more times than I want to discuss - WHEN I WAS YOUNGER.
At the tender age of, somewhere in between rockin' out hot chick and grandma needs her walker, I'm not ready to take the plunge into the wonderful world of maternity again. Get it?!?!

Your pending arrival is quite the joy. Not just for me, but the entire family.
My husband has generously offered to spend more quality time at the office to avoid the stress your pending arrival is causing.
Oh, and the hot flashes?? Joy, I tell ya!
There's nothing I want more at 3 am than to peel the covers off my sopping wet body (gross) & run to the refrigerator just to feel the cold air.
That giant container of ice water looks awfully refreshing as well.
Perhaps a wet t-shirt contest in the kitchen at 3 am? Yeah, I don't think so.
Well, on the upside... Hmmm, Ok no upside.
What joy... Yeah, so like I said... Getting older. HATE IT!
Thank you for reading my blog!
