This year has been pretty good. This year of 40. No one believes me when they ask my age. In fact, I was at the Minnesota Roller Girls and the server took one look at my ID and laughed saying she thought I was 28. That made my week. But it hasn't been all compliments and gum drops. It seems as if the moment I turned 40 strange things started happening. At first I thought it was all a coincidence but I soon realized that sadly it wasn't. One of the first things I noticed was my eyesight. I started having trouble reading small print. I told this to my mom who had no sympathy for me, in fact she seemed to enjoy my struggles. I think this has been because of years of me teasing her about not being able to read bottles and boxes- payback!
But the most upsetting of them all - pimples! My Long Island Ladies can attest that back in the day - those teenage years when hormones are raging and pimples were abundant- I never got any. In fact- true story- I had what I thought were 3 pimples on my face. 3! I thought the sky was falling. I was so freaked out. Even my bestie Anna was like "what is up with those pimples?". Guess what? Totally not pimples- CHICKEN POX. HA. I knew it couldn't be pimples. So now with turning 40 and the change in my hormones, pimples decided to make an appearance and apparently they like it here.
I know this is just the beginning of the changes in my body that I am going to see. And I feel very fortunate to have my mom around to help me through this and to laugh with me through this. I also feel very fortunate that information is at my fingertips on the Internet so I can get answers quickly, realize I am not the first (obviously) and probably even more importantly give me information about the changing hormones of my kids. And UGG I feel that is coming way to fast (I have no idea what to do with a pre-pubescent boy). Anyway, if you have some of these questions- a great resource is BodyLogicMD. They helped me
find information not only about my hormone issues but I peaked and found some great resources to prepare me for H's entry into the world of hormones.
I am sure that I have more pimples, cheaters, and who knows what in my future and I know I can handle it with grace and humor! Just hope my kids can also.
