I think I've hit the mid-life crisis stage...

Previous Entry I think I've hit the mid-life crisis stage... Jun. 23rd, 2006 @ 09:35 am Next Entry
I mean, I will be 38 in December. I've already pared off the excess weight that 2 kids and a deep depression brings (according to the scales this AM, I am at 137, a mere 10 pounds over what I weighed the day I got married. But with boobs. *eg* :boggle:); I'm starting to look for new clothes (which are a necessity, not vanity - nothing I own FITS anymore!)...and, well...

Hi, I'm fiberaddict, and I'm a BPAL whore. (Hi, Fiberaddict!) I haven't even *thought* of perfume in years, and here I am, slavishly hitting the forums, making lists, hitting eBay, hitting the lab (and waiting very impatiently!)...it's sad. And funny. *g*

I'm even contemplating selling one of the broodmares. :shock: Her breeder wants her back; I'll get the first foal, so it's not like I'm losing anything (plus, I have her son, so....) I dunno. Any monies received would just go into savings anyway....

I guess it's normal, but damn is it weird! I'm looking at clothing I would NEVER have worn 5 years ago (I mean - halter tops? 2 piece swimsuits?? Who am I and where did I go??) and I don't give a damn what "they" think about it. (Heck, I'm already the weird lady of the neighborhood town county anyway, so what does it matter?) If it wasn't for the dogs and kids, I'd be thinking seriously about trading in my well-loved mini-van for a small, cute fuel-efficient car (but that won't happen - ever - if I *do* ever trade it in, it'll be for a truck to haul the horses around with. Seriously - cars just don't cut it.)

My kids don't seem to mind all the changes - either they don't notice, or it's not as big a deal as I'm thinking it is. (But, really - a bikini? ME??? It is pretty, though...let's see if I actually *wear* it when it gets here..which won't be for a couple of weeks; the seller agreed to hold it for me until Wednesday..*g*)

Congratulations on reaching that wonderful realization. I had mine early. It was very enjoyable. *g*

So, you're saying I need to sit back and enjoy the ride? I can do that...

Enjoy it! As long as you're having a good time and not doing anything you wouldn't want your mom to read about in the newspaper, it's all good.

I'll just make sure there are no reporters around, how about that? *g*

I ordered some imps at the end of May, and CCNOW is saying that they shipped, but they're still not here! I'm getting nervous! What if they got lost??!

As for all that other stuff, who cares? Enjoy yourself and don't get caught breaking any laws.

According to the forum, they're only up to shipping out the 4/20 orders. My first one was 4/27......they had a move in the middle there, so things got behind.

CCNow says they shipped the day the lab picks up the orders from them. Don't fret - yet...they are still saying give it at least 5 weeks before getting worried (and mine's been longer than that! wah!)

I suggest eBay to fill the time while waiting...I've gotten 3 sets of imps in from there since 5/1, and I'm still looking....*g*

I'll try really hard to not get caught......but that's all I'm promising!
