    I Know

    Especially since I had such a miserable childhood and growing up for me was the pits. Also, there are so many things I always wanted to do when I was younger, but now it's too late because of my age. I wish there was such a thing as the fountain of youth.

    The Face Looking Back............

    As We Age Our Loved Ones Get Older

    It's not the wrinkles or the extra pounds that bother me, it's the fact that my mom is the youngest of 7 kids and she'll soon be 70.I can't imagine a world without my uncle and aunt that I spent time with growing up. He was the closest person I had in a father way in my life. I...

    Getting Older and Dating.............

    I don't mind the getting older.  I appreciate the lessons life has to offer and the things I have learned, good and not so good.  What I don't like is, inside I feel just as I did when I was a teenager.  I can still run five miles in fifty minutes, still...

    43

    43 is a difficult age for me and probably for all women. Yes, we CAN have more children but we probably will not. You begin to look at your children and feel sadness that you will not be able to see another day one of a precious life. Of course I love my children, but I miss...

    I guess a lot of people on here are going to think that I'm still too young to complain, because a lot of people on here are in their 40's, 50's, and beyond; however, if we can all remember, things can start to change in our early 30's. I will be turning 32 in five months. The...

    Older On The Outside.

    Ok, I admit it, I'm getting older.. physically. Not that you would actually guess it really, except a little extra padding around the middle which I'm working on. I have good hair genetics and when I have a haircut there are very few grey hairs visible even on the temples of my...
