Maybe, Maybe, Maybe

Maybe it’s the weather.  Maybe it’s the start of spring (if it ever gets here).  Maybe it’s that the weather is getting warmer so I can’t hide under the layers of clothing and I’m embarrassed that I’ve gained a little weight over the winter.  Maybe I’m guilty of not keeping up with CrossFit.  Maybe, maybe, maybe.

But I looked in the mirror today and wondered Who the hell is that? looking back at me.  Have you ever had one of those aha moments where suddenly you feel like a stranger is looking back at you in the mirror?  It’s like the invisible lines on my face just decided to become loudly VISIBLE and I’m covered in wrinkles!  My bathroom mirror hasn’t changed a bit, but my reflection sure as heck has!  Maybe it’s a bad hair day or just how I feel about myself.  But it was like whoa – how did I get old suddenly overnight?  Maybe it’s because I”m not sleeping as much as I usually do and my dreams have been a bit crazy.

But has this ever happened to you?  I mean, seriously?  I just want to curl up and go back to bed.  Or is it just one of those midlife aged 50+ women things that happen?

Whatever the reason, it stinks.  I’m going to slather on moisturizer and wrinkle cream right now, again, and go back to bed.  Maybe I just awoke from a nightmare.  Yeah, that’s the ticket.  I’m dreaming, right?  Maybe the magic will work on me while I sleep.

    As am I, but slathering it on hasn’t changed a thing but make me hope it works someday!
