I got new glasses last weekend – I like em. This is me, no makeup and newly 39. Even though my right eye is like 2200, my left eye is now better than 20/20. That’s because I favor the left I suppose. Anyway, I’m now knocking on 40. It’s not as distressing as I’d imagined it to be. Perhaps it’s because I’m in the best shape of my life and things are going really well for me professionally and personally. Maybe it’s because by the time I got here, I’ve realized that old isn’t so old after all.
Still, I use expensive cream for my face (Definity by Oil of Olay and yes, I bought it FTC – the stuff absolutely rocks! I have super sensitie and dry skin and it’s the best stuff I’ve ever used and I highly recommend it!) to try and combat wrinkles, or at least keep them from taking over. And I have other products I use for skin and hair and all that jazz. It’s expensive, battling age.
Frauke is doing an overhaul of my website to a lighter color because while I love this dark blue, it’s hard on my eyes! And since many of my readers are my age or older, I figure it may be hard on their eyes too.
However, I must say I feel sexier than I did, even just ten years ago. I’ve hit my stride I think. I don’t care what anyone else thinks and I don’t mind trying new things and I get more looks now than I did ten years ago! Perhaps it’s the attitude, maybe it’s because I’m a doofus, LOL, who knows?
In any case, 39 started with a cupcake and a hot cup of coffee made my my husband who’s been with me for going on 21 years now. He’s seen the girls when they were a lot perkier and he still loves em. My kids gave me my favorite perfume (which I don’t buy for myself because it’s expensive and I don’t quite know when I turned into my mother but here I am) and my husband, well he gave me something we’ll try out later after the kids are asleep!
It’s a good day. I’ve got a lot of writing to do this weekend and the time to do it. My dude turns 39 on Tuesday. We used to do a birthday week back in the day, before kids and the need to sleep more than three hours a night. He’s got salt and pepper at his temples and in his beard – damned sexy.
Have a great Saturday folks, have a cupcake and take a second to appreciate who you are now.
