The Change

me in Las Vegas back in April.
I am 51 yrs. old and am now embracing my "golden years". I still have to get up every morning and go to work. The difference is that I have aches and pains now that I have to deal with on a daily basis. Then there are the "hot flashes" Oh yea, baby, they are fierce! I mean, you never know when or where they will turn up. I can be sitting in a cool room perfectly still chatting with someone and the next thing you know my upper lip is sweating and I am burning up lokking for a fan,breeze, open freezer...It only gets better too, I also have trouble sleeping, well, not actually falling to sleep just the staying asleep. I toss and turn all night with the night sweats and who knows what the hell else! And the mood swings! I will bust out crying over the simplest things and god forbid, if you are crying, hello, Miss bawlbag here will join right in! Oh, I ain't saying I am sitting alone in the dark feeeling sorry for my sweaty self. Quite the contrary, I am enjoying being a single woman and find not having to worry about a man a very liberating thing I tell ya! But, the thing is that now when I get together with my friends and we start getting crazy and I start laughing, the next thing i know I am peeing my pants! I laugh so hard I pee myself! Not a big gush, mind you ,but a tiny dribble that heck, even 2 years ago I could have held back. That and for some reason, I have great bladder control all day but the minute my feet hit my front porch I gotta go and barely make it to the pot before the big TT! The funny thing is that as I sit here proof reading this entry I keep moving the chair back and back...focus!
