Time flies when your........

Getting older! lol


So where have I been? What have I been doing? Right now looking for an escaped hamster......perhaps that in itself might make a very funny story at some point but right now I am not amused! And the boy wonders why I won't let him get a pet snake!!!!


So back to what I really wanted to talk about.......time.


It seems like yesterday I was 16 walking down the street getting beeped at and cat called by men/boys of all ages and thinking anyone older than 20 doing that was just plain "EWWWWWWW!" and I remember thinking that any 40 something year old man looking even remotely my way was a dirty old man. Now here I am 40 something married to a slightly older 40 something man and wondering when did that happen???? lol So..... When did 40 become so ........... "HOT!?!?!"


It seems I had a lot of time on my hands to think the last couple of days (10)......I am recovering from an abscessed tooth which spread to my jaw and sinuses and had me pretty much down for the count for almost a full week.... pain killers and antibiotics made me want to live again thank GOD! And then a weekend spent with girlfriends had us all wondering when did so much time pass? It's a good spread in age between us all.... some 30's, some 40's and some early 50's.  It's always a learning experience when we can all get together and have a few conversations running the gamut from sometimes deep to sometimes raunchy subjects! lol


Age has a way of changing perspectives doesn't it? All this has me wondering now when I am in my 70's am I going to think men in their 80's are still hot?? lol lol lol In my 80's am I still going to remember what to do with a man? I am hoping that "LIKE RIDING A BICYCLE" analogy still rings true at that age... and if not am I gonna really care?


So here were the girls sitting around the poker table Saturday night and wondering if we were suddenly single what would the "Doable" cut off age be? I think my conscious would bother me with anyone 20 something considering I have 2 children in that age range.....30 something totally doable! lol 40 and 50 something? No problems there.....BUT I don't think 60 something would be a turn on for me right now! lol


Poker night ended around 1:00 a.m. Sunday with all of us laughing about how far and few between those beeps and cat calls are these days and how they wouldn't seem to be so "TOTALLY GROSS" as they used to be.......hell, every once in awhile I still get carded and that does a girl good when that happens!


All and all I am still very pleased that Man Of Mine still chases me around the house from time to time and considering he is the only Man I want  to curl my toes with a kiss and bring a blush to my cheeks after all these years.... I know I am a very lucky woman no matter what age I am!

I really enjoyed your entry....your sense of humor cracks me up!!  Glad you are feeling better from the toothache.  I sure hope you find the hamster, I wouldn't be able to sleep with it running loose in the house!  Sounds like you have a wonderful bunch of friends to have fun with, and a GREAT relationship with your hubby.....I've been married almost 37 years and he still has the same "hottie" factor for me now as he did at 18.  Of course my eyesight isn't 20-20 as it was back then (ha)....

Take Care,

Glad you are feeling better. Hate Toothaches yuck. Age has a way of creeping up on you, you turn around and years have passed. I think as long as you have an upbeat nature, a smile on your face and joy in your heart...love will find you. Sandi

Girl....I wondered why you were MIA.  Glad you're feeling better.  I'm hoping as forgetful as I am now....that when I get a few years older....if I still "got it"...that I can remember where I put it !!!  It was too funny a month or so ago...I got carded and the same week, DJ got offered a senior discount.....life is good !!! He was not near as amused as I was.  Go figure !!  LOL
