Just a Scoche

Well I guess I am not supposed to talk about the baby shower I went to on Saturday. Whenever I try it just deletes itself, ok Universe I understand…..no mocking the bad shower.

My gray hair is taking over and my once every 5 weeks is now from here on out every 4 weeks. It’s hell getting old! I had somebody ask me the other day how much weight I have gained since I quit smoking, I honestly didn’t know. I went home a weighed myself and I am now 140lbs, yikes! When I quit smoking I weighed 137lbs, I lost 5lbs the first week……so did I gain 8 or 3lbs? Regardless some of it needs to go away. Bertha is growing out of control, not only is she growing over my bra strap but now she is starting to grow under as well. Have I ever mentioned that I named my back fat?

I remember the day clearly, I was 37 at the time and I was getting ready for work. It was summer and I was wearing a tank top. I was putting deodorant on and that was when I first saw it, this ugly bulge of skin squeezing out the top of my bra strap. I was (still am) horrified and I named it Bertha. I still haven’t found the secret that will make her disappear, but I will.

On a happier note I was in Barnes and Noble twice this weekend. The first time I had the store nazis…I mean my kids with me, which led to “are you done yet?” and “Mom I’m starving!” So I went back on Sunday when I could take my time. I could spend days in that store šŸ™‚books

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.

    And I hate showers. Finger sandwiches and games. What’s not to hate?
