Nice to see you!

Three major events occurred for me last year (2010), all in the space of about 2 weeks. I turned 50. The following day I got married. Two weeks later, my oldest daughter became pregnant with her first child and my first grandchild.

Most middle-aged people will tell you that in their minds, they still feel 20 something. It's the same for me.

Wasn't it only yesterday that I was planning a night out with guys from the surf club? That gorgeous new perm. Flaired, cuffed denims and the red t-shirt with the off-the-shoulder frill. Corked platform wedgies. **sigh**

Suddenly I'm looking in the mirror and wondering how 30 years can flash by so damned quickly!

So here I am in cyberspace, sharing my genuine shock and horror with anyone who'll listen and maybe I'll even meet some other over 50s who find themselves in the same predicament!

Welcome to my dilemna!!

My question for today is ... why do we buy clothes that require “gentle hand washing”?

I have a long list of ‘most hated chores’ and hand washing clothes is definitely on that list.

It was a nice day at home avoiding people, but I still had to squeeze in a few loads of washing, some hand washing, some fridge clearing, some ironing, some studying, writing up the new advertisement for the newsletters and Adoring Husband and I sat down to start working on a budget - something that we’ve been meaning to do for more than ten years, but just kept putting it off.

Adoring Husband took my iMac to the Dr and the doctor called this afternoon to say that there is nothing wrong with it - just a memory and age problem, giving me advice on how to improve the situation. He only charged $50; so I’m pretty happy about that.

So it’s been a productive day and now I’m ready for bed.

It’s almost 11pm. Time flies when you’re having fun!
Nite all.
