TMI part deux

I have grey hair in more than 1 location. I have wrinkles. My bosoms are not as pert as they used to be.
I am a 41 year old woman and I accept these little insults as part of the inevitable ageing process.

There are things about me which are sometimes thought of as the trademark of the young.
I have spots on my chin. I have nits.

Now I wonder why I am still single ? Spots, grey hair, wrinkles AND nits.

Form an orderly queue gentlemen.

I caught nits from my children about a week after meeting my lovely Husband-to-be. I had to phone him to advise he check his head just in case. And he still married me...

Aawh thank you Karen, maybe that means I'll be getting a new man soon !!!

That would be nice

Liam said...

Well, I'm free :) - And Ryanair will get you here - Check your mail :)

PS - I have grey hair myself - It's OK, I understand

Are nits head lice? (Sorry, different country here.) I have four girls who habitually grab the nearest hair brush -- mine. Can you imagine the mess we had when one of them came home from school with lice? I spent $200 on stuff that was supposed to kill them (the lice, not the kids); we washed ALL the bedding and pillows, vacuumed couches and chairs, bagged toys and books. We went through it THREE times before we finally got rid of the lice. Know what did it? An 87-cent bottle of rubbing alcohol! I don't know what it might do to hair color, but it got rid of the lice. Good luck, dear lady; I STILL have nightmares about trying to get rid of the little critters!

Holy hell, don't even get me started on the whole I'm over 40 and it's all going down hill from here crap. I found a chin HAIR the other day. Never have I had one before. ugh.

auntiegwen said...

Thanks Craze - thats something else I've got to look forward to !!!

*~*Cece*~* said...

I think we just have to love ourselves for our aging quirks. *shrugging* What else is there to do? Which reminds me I need to go buy hair dye within the next few weeks. Oy.

Oh yeah, don't get Craze started on aging or she'll never shut up! lol

Mom of Three said...

I am also 41. I have little, stiff black beard hairs on my chin that have to be tweezed at regular intervals.

My children have used my breasts for punching bags, and it shows.

I eat less and exercise regularly and still cannot lose weight.

Golden years my butt!

auntiegwen said...

Cece -thanks for visiting and as always yep I need hair dye too

Mom of three - ooh beard hair, if you've got it and Craze's got it, it can only be a matter of time for me !
