Right now I feel like I’m learning a lot about myself.
I have to be honest. It’s hard getting older. Things just aren’t the same!
I’m learning how to dress “age appropriate” while still being me. Lately I’ve been questioning which stores I can still shop at and which trends I can get away with. Reality sucks a big one.
I’m learning how to balance my home life and social life. This has been a lot harder now that C is older: he’s into more activities and attending school functions and outings with his friends. Being a mom is always my #1 job and lately it’s felt like my only job. I LOVE being a mom, but I desperately need me a cocktail and some girl time.
Pumpkin pie shots, anyone??
I’m learning how my body is changing. The past two years have been hard. It sucks, but the older I get, the harder it gets. My metabolism is definitely not the same it was 5 years ago! I feel like I’m re-learning how many calories a day is perfect for me and my body. And counting calories sucks.
I’m learning that I’d rather stay home on a Friday night than go out. I absolutely LOVE falling asleep on the couch on a Friday night in my sweat pants covered in my big faux fur blanket. It’s heavenly. Not sure when I became a grandma, but give me my Friday nights in!
And, most importantly, I’m finally learning that the drama isn’t worth it! I’m over it. I want to be friends with nice people. I don’t have time in my life for jerk faces. Nice people up in here only please.
Love all these ladies dearly.
What are you still learning??
