Sometimes I have thoughts that just go through my mind. They aren’t really enough to do an entire blog on… at least not most of them. Just felt like sharing them with you. I was wondering if you think about these things also or if these things are happening to you? Maybe you aren’t there yet, or maybe you are way past this stage. It doesn’t matter they are just random thoughts.
~Who will my children marry and will I have to travel far to see them? None of my kids are dating (so they tell me) but I have already started praying diligently for kind loving people with good moral codes and standards and a strong faith to enter my children’s lives.
~Really it takes me 9 months to lose 15-20 pounds yet I gain 10 in 2 weekends at the lake. What the hell is that? What is going to happen when I am 80? Hopefully I just won’t give a damn!
~I can’t cop a squat anymore. Something is wrong with my stream of urine. It runs side ways and I have to stop mid stream or it will just be going down my leg. Why won’t it go straight down any more? I can’t possibly be doing something wrong. Probably wondering where and why I am even in a cop a squat position huh?
~ As I age am I just getting less and less invincible mentally or is our world now crazier than ever. I’m scared for my children and for them to raise children in a world so full of hate? Maybe it’s always been here and I just was young and naïve. I’m scared now. Sad but I am.
~At what age does hair stop growing on our legs and under our arms? I’m tired of waxing. But I don’t want it to stop growing on my head. Where I want hair to keep growing like my eyebrows… NADA they are thinning to nothing. I want my leg hair to thin dammit!
~What the hell happens to my body all night when I sleep? The walk to the bathroom in the morning is like I am walking on hot coals. Popping, crackling and hurting. A good Physical Therapist told me not to tuck my sheets in… we don’t want our toes pointed and arched as we sleep. Also to lean over and stretch counting to 100 before we get out of bed. I tried it... actually helps.
~ I have texts, IM messages and emails from people who have passed. When do I get rid of them? To be honest I don’t think I can. It’s like their last words to me. I wonder if there is a way to store them somewhere forever. Some are as simple as Merry Christmas hope to see you next year My Dear…. That was from NBC News reporter John Noel. Miss you dear friend.
~Issues that I’m changing my views on as I get older… guns, marijuana, plastic surgery, drinking age of 21.
~At what age will I lay down and not worry about my kids and if they are safe? Is there an age where I just lay down and fall asleep and not worry? I fear the day will never come and yet I fear the day will come. Does that make any sense?
That's all I got roaming through my mind now. Another year will muddle even these thoughts and bring new ones to the horizon. I was just thinking as a woman I would like to know the random thoughts of a midlife man... Hmmmm let me see what I can find for next week.
Keep looking forward so you don't miss what God puts in front of ya!
