Yes, I know this spring chicken has hatched, been scrambled and is now just a shell of her former self...LOL *Omg I crack myself up*
That's right in February I'll be turning 42 years old and this month I got my very first pair of reading glasses. *hangs head in shame* It was starting to get really hard to read the fine print on bottles, magazines, my 48" tv screen. lol so reading glasses it was. They really help though I have to say.
I thought I would share some of the other things you youngun's have to look forward to as you get older. *Omg I just said youngun's..I totally sounded like my gramdma*
A few years ago I found my first gray hair..I knew right then...it was time for Nice & Easy..I have very nice Black hair now..no grays.
I am old enough to say things like, do as I say, not as I did.
Because I'm older than you and I know better!
Been there done that.
When I was your age...
I can also do things to embarrass my grown child...lol
Now I already had a 10% hearing loss in my left ear...from listening to music too loud when I was younger is what my doc told me. *Tell your kids to turn down their music or we'll have a bunch of deaf 40 year olds in 20 years* but it seems my hearing has gotten even worst in the past few years. Yea old age..thanks so much.
My hair is falling out more and more...my husband went so far as to tell me my falling hairs are attacking him, stalking him and when he walks by POW, they wrap themselves around his feet and scurry into his underwear to wrap around his manly parts. I should tell you, my hair is down past my butt, so when one falls out, it can wrap around the darnedest things several times. lol But I seriously doubt they are stalking him...O_o
I found a 2 inch long hair on my face...i kid you not..it was the thinnest hair I've ever seen and I pulled it out but you know what...it just keeps coming back. I can only hope it doesn't bring brothers and sisters with it.
I also found a gray eye brow hair. Eye brow hair...lol yeah I was a little freaked out that my eye brows were turning gray..
My skin is getting drier..good grief I should just buy stock in a lotion company right now.
I have Osteoarthritis in my knee's. I am creaking and cracking more than a wooden carriage.
Did you know that as you get older you can have light bladder leakage? Yeah, me either...getting old is so much fun.
Oh and the best thing about getting older is I don't want to leave my house because I get tired easy. Decreased activity? Check!
In the course of natural aging there are many things that may or may not affect you, but it's the normal course of things and not much we can do about it.
