30 Something.... What? Me? No WAY?

You know that show that was on TV when we were all kids, Thirty Something. Well, I used to think.... God, That is old! I thought for some reason I would never be 30 something? What was I thinking? I mean, What the Hell was I thinking? Did I truly believe that my life would not go past 19? I am not sure? Well, whatever that caused me to believe that I would be stuck at the same age for the rest of my life I wish I could take it back so I wasn't so damned disappointed at being 30 something! I find this over 30 thing really hard to cope with. I don't know why? Everyone tells me I am still so young and in my prime. How can I be in my prime when I am fatter than I have ever been in my whole life, weaker than ever, and grayer than ever! That says I am getting old, well, to me anyways! I know there is a cure for the fatter than ever and the weaker than ever, which I have planned some goals to try to remedy this fat, weak thing. I color my grays so I know I can mask what I really have but the gray does not mask so well, color seems to run off of those damn wirey hairs! Not to mention the hair that doesn't even belong there bull crap! What is up with that? It is a very cruel joke on all of us women that are subjected to ways to remove the hair that does not belong in certain areas of our bodies. How horribly painful and humiliating when you family sees red splotches where red splotches don't belong. I could go on!

I am not steering from my topic here but merely telling you what happened this last week to show you how being 30 something really does SUCK!
I have had a week with
pain. I fell last Wednesday at my friends house because my flip flop got caught in a crack and I couldn't see where I was walking because my arms were full. I swear it is always something with me! I am truly a clutz. I scraped up my right knee and elbow and messed up my syatic and my lower back. I have been suffering for the last week barely able to walk. My hubby finally talked me into going to our local Chiropractor yesterday, whom I love, Doc Snitker, he is fabulous! He gave me a good work over and some ultrasound therapy with a lil' shock treatment on my lower back and guess what? I can walk without suffering! Woo hoo!

This falling down thing has become quite the bad luck on my part for the last 3 years. Since my 30th birthday I have been on a roll! The 30th birthday I fell and broke my wrist and then fell again with in a couple of weeks and hyperextended my knee. On my 31st birthday I fell and hurt my hyperextended knee from the previous year. On my 32nd birthday I fell and hurt my ankle really bad, sprained. This year my syatic and lower back. I laughed on my first major fall and told everyone by this rate I will have fallen and broken my hip by age 35! It was funny...... WAS funny! No longer do I find this statement to be hilarious. I am in fear that what I have spoken will only come true! Dear God, you have to admit I am on a roll. I should be nominated Clutz Of All Times, is there an award out there for that? Well I should get it if there is!

So being 30 Something truely sucks fro me I pray it gets better but if it does not I can see myself within 2 years with a broken hip! Then what?

My daughter called last night to tell me she had gotten elected to a position she really didn't even want but she was excited now that she had gotten it. She gave a speech for District Office for the office position of Public Relations for her FCCLA group. Well she was ecstatic and so am I! I told her how wonderful that will look on her college applications.

Birthday Blues

Well, I have been keeping myself pretty busy lately. I am enjoying the great outdoors, or trying to when weather permits. I have accomplished quite a bit of raking and burning of the leaves when wind permits. I have gotten some flowers planted and hopefully they will grow.

Last week the nasty storm weather sent me to town to work out of my girlfriend's house. My sattelite fails during bad weather so I went to town to make sure I was not kicked off so I could work full days and low and behold she had a power outage in town on one of the days. Figures! But I did get only kicked off the net for only an hour. I managed to clean my girlfriend's house and do all of her laundry while I was there. I don't know why, but I have always enjoyed cleaning someone else's house more than my own. I know she was greatful. My friend works her ass off. I know a lot of people do that but here is what she does everyday. She has a 7yr old in 1st grade, 21 month old baby girl, and another 11 month old baby girl. Yes the smaller 2 are just 10 months apart! She was in shock too when she found out she was pregnant. She works 40 hours a week at the title office in town and she works about 25 plus hours a week at home doing what I do. She manages to clean her home and keep it pretty emaculant and cook dinner for her family every night, not to mention the laundry is pretty much always done. MAN! Sometimes I wonder how she does it? She has told me she wonders how she does it herself! So I do not mind when she needs some help, I try to pitch in and help her the most I can.

Anywho... So I have a second interview for my new job I want on Thursday! I am really stoked about it! I am pretty sure I got it! Not to be cocky about it but she said she wanted me to come in to finalize on some things. So I am assuming I pretty much have it. I guess I could be all wrong. You know what ASSUMING is? I know you do!

Sunday 04/09 was my birthday.... WOO HOO! We took the kids to see the Springfield Cardinals game. It was fun, at least they won! 8 - 5 was the score. Good game! After that..... I became really depressed. I mean reallllly depressed. I have never been depressed on my birthday??? W.T.H.??? I was on the verge of tears I tell you, I was fighting them back with everything inside of me. I could not even tell my husband why? I know the poor guy was thinking WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??? YOU CRAZY WOMAN!!!!! But I worked it out. I had a good cry in the bath tub while I was soaking in my jacuzzi tub. Yeah, I know I got it real bad. That is what I was thinking while I was crying in my JACUZZI tub. I said to myself, "Andi, What are you crying for? So what you are 33 years old? So what? It is not like I am going to die tomarrow, Look at what you are in and what surrounds you, I have such a wonderful husband and a wonderful home and my ASS is soaking in a freaking Jacuzzi tub in the privacy of my own bathroom! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!" Well, even though I talk to myself doesn't really mean I answer, well, I don't all of the time. Hee hee! I dont't know why or what it was I just know I was depressed, but I have worked it out. I have been eating chocolate, it seems to have helped!
I think Chocolate is the answer to pretty much any depression or problem that women have. Or I think it is anyways! Matter of opinion I suppose!
