And Away I Go

Saturday, February 25, 2012

And away I go... When you're a menopausal woman that statement takes on a whole new meaning. And away I go to divorce court, the funny farm? For me, I'm sitting on the fence between the two. Life's not a picnic nor a bed of roses. It's ants and thorns. Yep I'm cynical.

There comes a time in every woman's life when we have to stop looking through rose colored glasses and say what the hell am I doing? Whether you're 21 or 51 life will sooner-or-later bite you in the butt(trust me, I have thirty years of experience).

When I was 21 I'd been married to husband number one a couple of years and was seeing our wedded bliss through rose colored glasses. I didn't see what was right in front of me. Fast forward thirty years, two husbands, four kids, and one grandchild to what is now my reality. I've taken off my rose colored glasses! I can see clearly now life isn't meant to be a picnic or a bed of roses. It's filled with ants and thorns as it should be, but....

On days you feel like heading to divorce court or the funny farm (especially us menopausal women)put on your rose colored glasses for a brief moment and take a trip back in time to the 21'll do a body good!

And away I go...see ya in thirty years.

Disclaimer: Do not fear my loyal readers hubby and I am not getting a divorce, I'm just being a menopausal women and ranting...


  1. Hi Debra! Thank you for checking out my blog today. I am sorry you were not able to comment! I love to hear from women a bit farther down the road of life than I am ... it sounds like you have a lot of valuable life experiences. I love your humor and your authenticity! It is refreshing to find someone who keeps it real.

    I don't like removing my rose colored contacts. It sort of reminds me of why God made our eyes start to go bad when we start to get the "real" wrinkles. lol

    Oh, if only we could keep those rose colored glasses!

  1. I always question my frame of mind when I take my glasses off. Reality check makes me put them back on every time.

  1. Sometimes a good rant is called for.
