This Aging Thing.....

Hi  y'all........
I'm telling you....this aging thing is wearing me out!!

I said....This aging thing is wearing me out!!

If you'll notice, I posted a picture of a face cream at the top.  The market today is flooded with face creams, cleansers, serums, and all other kinds of goodies, that are suppose to be the BEST at making one look younger.

Bah Ha.......

Some of these beauty items are not cheap..
I have seen them range from just a few dollars, up to hundreds of bucks.

I must be missing the fine print that says it takes years to be able to tell the difference.
I can testify that it doesn't happen overnight, over weeks,  or over months!!

Another thing is weight products.....Do any of them really work???  Why can't they just come up with something similar to Prune juice to help us older folks lose weight?  
Yep...that's right....if you're constipated, just drink the Prune juice and pretty soon, all runs smooth in that department...
Surely with all the knowledge in the world today, they (whoever they are) could come
up with some kind of FAT JUICE...
Drink it and you suddenly melt to the size you want to be!!  Wow...this would be great!

I'm beginning to think that it's a simple fact... 
You're either gonna be Fat or you're gonna be skinny!! 
The mirror decides!!

I guess it's not enough for us older women to have to deal with aging skin and weight problems, so why not go ahead and throw in the "Hot Flashes."
Mine are really not "hot flashes".....I'm just 
HOT  natured!  In other words, I'm HOT all the time... (as in my body temp is always hot)

Maybe it's because I have to many layers and the heat is getting trapped!!

I guess you can tell it's been one of those kind of days....It feels like Summer skin feels dry and 
I must have eaten way too much over the weekend!!

Oh Well...I'll just have to try again next Monday!! ha!

Dear, Dear, Shug... We had the same kind of Monday! Thanks for giving me someone to laugh WITH tonight.

Shug, you are so funny and I'm quite sure that you are likely several years younger than me. I'm trying really hard to embrace the fact that I'm about to be 60 and roll with it. :o) As my dear Hubby would say, "it is what it is." Duh, not what I want to hear.

Hope the rest of your week is joy filled!

If they ever come up with that Fat Juice,I will be standing in line to get some.Oh but wait,it would probably have some negative side effects.I think I have more or less accepted the fact that I will never fit into that perfect size 8.Oh well,just more of me to love.

Shug, I just started last month going through hot flashes! I didn't have them until my mother passed away and I'm starting to think she left them as a parting gift to me! LOL She complained of them all the time. I frequently had to turn the air up and down for her at will because she was so miserable. Now I know exactly what she went through.

As for beauty products, some are hit and miss. I have found some eye cream from Sephora that works well and a foot cream from L'Occitane that is divine. Other than that, the rest can be dumped into a big trash can.

Sure is hard work getting older and trying to stay youthful. Ugh!

I seem to have had one of those Mondays myself! I'm a lot older than you are and it doesn't get any better, just the opposite. Everyday I see more crepey skin and wrinkles and age spots. Not to mention the lack of energy that comes with aging. I hate that more than the other things, actually. Oh well, it's better than the alternative as they say! I'm trying to have a sense of humor about it, but today the humor didn't work too well for me! Here's to a better day tomorrow!! Take care.

Very funny! I never believed that any of those creams would work. I'm trying to get used to all these new wrinkles showing up, but what really bothers me is the GREY HAIR! I'm really upset about having to get my hair colored all the time. Hope you're having a nice day.
