So far 60 is GREAT!!! It's been 7 days now, haha!
Seriously, the 50's did NOT thrill me.
It was too chock full of shocking body changes, hot flashes, weight gain & no energy.
It was one year into the next of frickin' issues & stress, trying to hang on to status quo & convince myself that attempting to age gracefully wasn't the biggest crock of bull pookie Madison Ave ever tried to shove up our (un)consciousness.
Now with that decade of frenzie & panic,
(all the while telling myself to remain calm & not to scream from the fright of settling reality,
not to mention those woefully painful glances into the f%@king mirror (lest somebody commit me to the nearset asylum for agravated acute screaching banshee syndrome) under my (ever expanding) belt...
I feel that I can now roll peacfully & happily into 60 with a sigh of relief!
Altho' most women this age have been able to retire I shall try to patiently wait for 2 more years & enjoy the time left with many Flight Attendants I do love working with.
I am grateful Doris & I are still in good health,
not to mention Fine Silver Foxes entering our "Act III" with a vengeance & suvivor's victory!
Pass the next issue of AARP, fire up the RV & we'll drive into the sunset of our next adventures! (With maybe a few naps here & there. Ha!)
All in all, I am so happy!
The 60's were really good back when we were living through them into the 1970's...
I have a feeling being 60 is going to be GREAT as well!!
