Time for a will

This morning I'm running a temperature, a very low grade one. I usually run below 98.6 (around 97 degrees due to thyroid disease) so anything close to 100 is a temperature for me . . . a million little violins are playing . . .


Six went back to school this morning after being home since Friday with an "upper respiratory infection" . . .because doctor is tired of the flu diagnosis paperwork and testing for all patients with flu like symptoms . . .


While waiting for 6's dance class to end last week, another mom offered me an Avon book and said she was the Avon lady. I told her I used to use the Anew products. She studied my face and handed me some Anew product samples (the Anew line has products specified for each age decade 30's, 40's, and 50's . . . apparently your skin doesn't require anything new when you are in your 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, or 100's ) . . . that's right, after studying my skin, she handed me samples for . . . . . .

THE 50's AGE GROUP . . . . the 50's and older age group!

. . . Don't like Avon lady . . . I'll buy Olay.


Tomorrow 12 turns 13 . . . he will now be called a teenager for the next five years . . . the adolescent-hell years . . . I can already feel my wrinkles deepening . . .


Today, I will be working on my last will and testament . . . because I have a temperature and I look old.

If AVON lady was smart she would have handed you the 30's packet!! Oh well, now you can come to the bingo hall with me and we can talk about my lack of bladder control and gray hair. ;)

I think I would tell that avon lady just where she could go and sell her makeup....

my 13yo hates being called a teenager. Maybe because we always preface it with terrible.

I've had three old-lady moments similar to yours in the past two days. Grrr!

it sounds like Dr OZ's truth tube and you are too funny.

I haven't watched it yet but saw that one of the Dr Oz's in my box is either 9 steps or 9 hours or 9 days to a younger you. . .and thought of you immediately with a giggle.
