Ode to New Years Eve

New Years Eve brings about…
Resolutions galore
How to make us better
By walking through a new door
New Years Eve brings about…
Reflections of 12 months past
Of hopes unrealized
And dreams painfully dashed
I look into my closet
Only to find
28 year old jeans
I can’t get over one thigh
I swore one year ago
They would fit once more
But the acid washed denim
Mocks me ever more
I swore one year ago
I would find the sunny side
But embracing only happy
Would make half of me die
So ha ha ha ha ha
And boo hoo hoo hoo hoo
Embrace the mood swings
They are a part of you
I swore one year ago
I would be better informed
I would seem so intelligent
With knowledge my brain reformed
But what I actually found
Ignorance is in fact bliss
I can be much happier
If I don’t know what all is amiss
So I will go forward
Happily uninformed
Trying not to notice
The ever surrounding storm
Maybe I’ll skip resolutions
So I won’t have to defend
My utter failure at them
When the world comes to an end
Here’s to a New Year! May the world not come to an end next December, there is so much I’d still like to do. If I knew for sure the world were coming to an end, my priorities would be a bit different.

About Wrinkles and Flab and Hair! Oh My!

You may be wondering about my choice of blog name. Well, I’m a few years north of 40 and I thought I would surely be the exception… turns out I’m not. This blog is to address the good, the bad and the ugly of getting older and just the mundaneness of everyday life. The wrinkles have set in. The flab just appeared. And the hair…when, how and WHY did it start growing there?!?! I welcome all who want to read. Those over 40 that are going through or have gone through the same thing, I hope we can chat like sisters, laugh like friends and shed a tear or two if needed. Those who are under 40 and are curious to see what lies ahead, come take a look behind the pre-menopausal curtain. Any men that are interested in reading, I welcome you too. I must, however, warn you of the disillusionment that may lie ahead. Likely, in your eyes, it will be the undoing of the feminine mystique. We are here to support one another on this crazy journey and I welcome all feedback. I’ll start with my stories and I hope you chime in with yours! So, everyone hop aboard and let’s take this ride together and see where it leads!
