Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Menopausal Questions....


Life feels all whamperjawed. Priorities have changed, thoughts have gone kooky, and this aging thing is not as graceful as one can hope. All of a sudden hairspray and coffee, cheese and pasta have become VERY important for survival!

Is it just me, or does this picture make perfect sense? Call me crazy, but it just makes me smile. Is that a bad thing?








Does it upset you as well, that now, in the throes of menopause, those blonde jokes aren't as funny..and hit too close to home?



Why...are good bras so darn hard to find? And...if you do find one, why is it forty dollars?

Coffee is one of the cornerstones of my life! And "the bra thing" is financially awful. The ones I found in NYC are $50+. Even on the internet I can't find them for much less. How did this happen?

So very cute - enjoyed your post today - it made me laugh out loud!!! I finally got my blog to post for GET R DONE today - it got jammed up somehow, and would not go up at all, and I had to mess with it. Never had the problem before today, and I don't know what I did to correct it! Are you able to comment on all the blogs you visit now??

Oh my gosh - your blog is a real hoot (although we know it is true -we are just able to laugh at the truth).

Brs's - we gotta hold our girls up don't we?

I just so enjoyed this and am still laughing out loud.

Bras are ridiculously priced!!! My Dollar Store bra didn't last too long and it kept trying to strangle me, anyway...

The last 2 bras I bought cost $62 each. They are very good, but I still have complaints about bras. Do men design them?

*sigh*...just forty for your bra...you got off cheap! LOL. I think the bigger they are the harder they fall...literally. LOL. It does take a village (and a really expensive bra) to heave mine back up. Great post, as I have been struggling with the same...things just are not in my brain like they used to be. LOL.
