I Didn't Shave My Legs For The Occasion

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

More rantings from the psycho menopausal fifty year old woman. I hate to admit to the fact, but I no longer shave my legs. I have foregone the ritual since I turned 49 and started going through 'the change'. My legs are now hairier than my hubby's.

I know I'M WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR, but do I really need to shave my legs? Hey, my leg hair is the only thing that keeps me warm when I'm not having a hot flash. I'm actually fond of the little follicles. They're family! They keep me company in the winter and in the summer, well let's just say I don't wear shorts.

Anyway, my point is I don't like to shave my legs. I'm not a football player and I really don't have to impress the opposite sex any longer. I'm a fifty year old hairy legged menopausal woman. Get over it!


  1. Yea!!!! I can say that since it's winter. Come summer, I'll be back to shaving once a week again. :)

    I wear pants...a lot! I shave twice a week. Used to shave every other day. As we get older the vanity thing doesn't rule but time rules our lives instead. Great Post!!!!

  1. I have never been a huge fan but out of guilt do shave my legs sometimes. I was so bad in high school that one of my teachers brought me a can of Nair ;-)

    If I don't shave, I itch. It's really yucky. If I could make it past day three, I'd probably be in the clear, but no, every other day, my follicles lose their heads.

    Following you back! Thanks for stopping by!

    Love your graphic...too funny!

  1. And I thought this was going to be a racy blog since it was listed as "adult content." Leg shaving is definitely optional at a certain age.
    I am here as one of the She Writes Blog Hoppers. Is this the right place?

    Hi, thanks for the add! I have to say, I LOVE your flow chart determining if you should shave or not! Too bad for me I get really itchy without shaving, or else I'd let it grow!

    New follower from the blog hop. I Love the hairy leg post LOL - VERY funny. As a woman approaching 50, I will feel right at home here. :)

    I started a new Friday blog hop of my own. It's an "infant" and could really use a boost to get started. Would love to have you join. Best Wishes

    Hi! Thank you for following my blog! I am returning the favor. Have a Sweet Friday!

  1. No way! Just can't do it. Since I've stopped dying my hair, there's only so much "ugly" I can stand. I will keep on shaving my legs until I die!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Lynette said...:

    so with you...hate shaving my legs or under arms...but give in to it every 3 months or so.

  1. MANDY said...:

    What a humourous post! New follower from the over 40 hop. Come and visit me at

  1. What a flowchart! Well done!

  1. Melissa said...:

    Ahahaha...oh my goodness! This post just made my night! I don't like shaving my legs either. It seems that after having a baby there is a lot that I don't like putting make up on? I don't know what happened to me. Just don't care anymore, lol. I guess I should do it for my fiance's sake! :-)

    I am your newest follower from the Friday blog hops. I love your blog! You can find me at:

    Have a great day!


  1. I can totally relate but I am only 36. I hate shaving my legs and think I am going thru early menopauce.....Found you on a blog hop. Hope you can visit my blog and follow me back.

  1. well-to-do said...:

    Wow, this is the most fabulous thing I've ever seen! Thanks for sharing :) I'm a new follower from Well to Do blog.


  1. Thank God for winter and broken razors ;) Before I got married, I'd date and make sure NOT to shave my legs. That way I'd never go further than kissing. It kept me on the straight and narrow LMAO! See, there are loads of good reasons NOT to shave.

    I'm following from the entourage.

  1. Deborah Ann said...:

    This is hilarious! As for me, I don't shave unless I'm in Bermuda. I just turned 49, and I have a feeling you're just the person to help me ease gracefully into the 50's...

  1. Morgan said...:

    The diagram is outrageous! I shudder to even say but I shave every other day to keep the legs silky smooth. It's become a habit and I don't even think about it anymore.

  1. Kimberly said...:

    I couldn't stop laughing at the diagram and your post... thanks, I really needed a laugh.
    All the best,

  1. rebecca said...:

    HAHAHA I love this chart. I am not a fan of shaving my legs at all unless I really have to. My husband hates it but seriously? I'm so far busy with too much other things then to worry about some hair. But if I have to have my legs showing, I will do it just because. Otherwise, I could care less if they get shaved

  1. hi Debthanks for following,me, have returned the favour. Love the flow chart. funnily enough hubby doesnt seem to notice if my legs are a little hairy but my duaghers do LOL
