North American International Auto Show

Here we are in front of the new Chrysler 300 Hemi. I had a few favorites that I would like to consider the next time I'm in the market for a new car. The Cadillac CTS is pretty sweet and so was the Bullet Mustang. I'm sure I will change my mind by the time I'm ready for a new car, that runs in the family. Living back in the cold North there are things we have to consider now. Someday it would be great to have a fun car to cruise around in on a warm summers day. And yes Jeff, I prefer a cage.

I woke up this morning and had lines in my face from my pillow case. I went about my usual routine, emptying the dishwasher, making the bed, answering emails and a few other chores. Then I went to take my shower and son of a gun, they were still there! I tried to cover them up with make up the best I could but you could still see them! Now I know why they tell you not to sleep on your stomach. I have always had the luxury of good skin, it's genetic. I always slept on my stomach, used Ivory soap and never had a problem. Menopause has change all that. Estrogen help keeps your skins elasticity, and without it your skin doesn't bounce back as it should. Now I am getting a chicken neck, saggy knees and the damn lines in my face. Add to that the hot flashes I have been having for 12 years and I'm surprised I am still sane!

When men age and get wrinkles, it looks distinguished, unfortunately it's not the same for the ladies.

Well, It's frustrating but I resolve to grow old gracefully!!

Welcome 2008

We spent the Christmas holiday in Florida with all our kids and Jeff's Mom, Dad, Greg & Jeff. Lauri and Barbara too! It was so nice to have us all together, and the first since Ryan & Whitney got married. Next year we will hopefully have a white Christmas in Cleveland.

Now that the holidays are over and I am looking forward to a eventful 2008. All the usual resolutions, take better care of yourself, exercise and all the rest of the usual. I am looking forward to moving to Cleveland and another new adventure with Jeff. Even though I spoke to Jeff and it was overcast, gray and raining, here it was sunny and a cool 44 degrees. I will surely miss all the sunny days here in the Carolinas.
Happy New Year!
