2023 AND February!

Can’t believe how fast time goes! Now I am 74. Wasn’t long ago I was freaking out about being 70! Growing old is a bitch! It didn’t sneak up on me; just woke up one morning and WHAM! There it was!

I have stopped coloring my hair though so I do acknowledge it! It’s funny how I don’t consider things until it’s thrown in my face! Take bras for instance! One day I put my bra on and noticed I had bits of extra ‘stuff” that wouldn’t stay in the cup. It’s weird because yesterday it did! Now I have these chicken giblets that insist on hanging under my arms! I tried a bigger cup but I am left with empty bits inside the top of each cup. I mean WTF!! How did it get from the top of my boob to under my arm? AND yes there’s more ! The bit of cleavage I had is now like a gathered curtain of skin between my boobs.

It’s worse with no bra on!! My half empty boobs lay flat against my chest and once again they want to reside under my arms. I mean, what is it with the underarms?

I went to get a personal fitting for a bra thinking there must be a remedy for this. Guess what? There is, however there is a price. I was fitted with a minimizer bra that’s like a tight strait jacket. It doesn’t really rearrange anything but it does hold the bits in position. So, the end result looks better with clothes on top but very uncomfortable especially with the hot summers we have here. I have a compromise; when I go out I wear my strait jacket but at home I let it all hang free!!!

Choose to be happy I say!

  1. Nice
    67 is really young for being old! No one really knows what it’s like to be 78 or even 79. It just seems so fast and since we are getting older we are starting to realize that time is going by quickly.

    It’s not all bad though, we can still enjoy our young years and make the most of them! We can travel, meet new people, work on our career and have all the fun we can! It’s definitely worth it to age slowly and enjoy every minute of our lives!
