How the heck did I miss this?
I will look at the article tomorrow. ..spinning willing.
I too am an artist who sometimes uses my art to help, sometimes I get angry I can't do what I used to.
Haven't seen you. Around in a while...you OK?

Don't get me wrong I can be very sarcastic, and make them feel like I'm killing them with kindness! 😇

I've found there's often a way to tell the truth and not be too much of a witch. Of course, I have been told I am brutally honest. Not really one to hold my tongue but I say it nicely. 😊
however, my friends like that about me, they know they will always get a genuine response from me. Even if they don't like the answer. 😕

Some days I'm surprised by what I see in the mirror. ..sometimes I look older than I expect other times younger. ..each time I think who are you? And what have you done with Wendy?
I've lost weight sometimes I feel good other times I still feel fat.
and being sick...no that doesn't always make me feel older, just sick.
I never really feel as old as I am.
Some of my favorite things...cartoons, Dr. Who, and my goofy husband...not in that order.
Now when you want to talk menopause give me a ring!

Hahaha at the bottom oh this was an ad powered by blogger to get free cosmetics!! LMBO
I've started one of those things before but they always want to get me to apply for a credit card before I get to the...end? I'm not going to do that. I do have a special email address just for things I sign up for. And when I start getting a lot of spam, I don't trash it I mark it as spam, it stops a lot sooner that way.
This isn't such a bad secret...but then again, I can't think of one. Gosh, I'm boring.

I woke up feeling grumpy today.  I had the most bizarre dreams...could it have been the weird book I was reading before I went to sleep?  I've never had that happen before.  Sleep deprivation does not make this girl a happy person.

I've been having many tears lately.  I didn't think recovering from the hip replacement surgery was getting to me, but it sure is.  I'm sick and tired of not being able to touch my foot!  and I still have about a month to go!  At least 12 weeks?  Dang!  I can't cut my own toe nails, can't shave my leg.  I can't bend over...I look like a fool trying to sit down without breaking 90 degrees.  Can't cross my legs.  Ugh.  I'm dependent enough on my husband, this is enough to add that last straw, you know?

Yep grumpy. 

Even had a migraine.  Why?  I don't even know.  Probably the sleep issue, and my husband bent over and conked me in the head with his head, I'm sure that didn't help.

i went to Physical Therapy.  Always a challenge, you see I can't hear.  I have Cochlear Implants, and it is a pain in the butt to hear in a crowded environment.  joy.

I haven't gotten my best friends birthday present out....her Birthday is in 3 days, she lives 3000 miles from me.  Ugh!

I broke my toe 3 weeks ago.  I still can't put on my shoes.  Grump.

I think it's time for a Gratitude post.

and for you......a kiss in the rain, might make it a bit better.
and block that stupid bloke at the gas station out of your mind.
I could tell you stories that I have seen...but I will spare you!

:-)

Well midlife hit me with Rosecea.  Not bad, but it sure changes your facial products.  I have to be gentle with my skin.  I used to wear more makeup when I worked and went out on dates, but I've never been one to wear much on a day to day basis....much more of a "natural" girl.  However, I do love a little mascara.  :-)  just enough really to show I have pretty eyelashes, if I don't wear any, yeah, you don't really see them...and I have pretty eyes.  so there! haha
Now I wash my face with a gentle cleanser....actually one from the Body Shop, it's a gel cleanser, in the Nutriganics line.  It is very moisturizing, for my "aging" skin, and very gentle..as I said.  I use CeraVe moisturizer AM and PM the AM has a sunscreen...very important for Rosecea.  I'm horrible at remembering to put on the PM....so I can't really tell you how good it is. 
I also have to watch how things smell, I can't stand the scent of a lot of products.
I haven't found a foundation that I like.  They often feel goopy, or don't look right....I remember when I was younger I could wear makeup and feel like I didn't have anything on...what happened to that?  Now everything feels like I need to wash my face.
I also think it is a very fine line when we get older from looking like we need makeup to looking like we have too much on.

You know, I don't think you look sick in those photos....you look a little tired in one, but not very sick.  I think you are a very pretty woman....who can take the world on!  With any look she wants!   Good luck on your journey.  looking forward to seeing what you find out.
