Too young for AARP or just right?
When I turned 50, I paid my $16 to join AARP. My 39 yr old husband said "Why, did you do that ?" I said I wanted to get the hotel discounts and other discounts. Not that I'm going any where or buying anything much these days. The other reason is that I always like reading the articles in the AARP magazine at my therapist's office.
My first AARP magazine came today with Dustin Hoffman on the cover dressed like a character in those "Matrix" movies..spikey hair, black high collared outfit. 75 years old of Hotness. oh, I cried during "Kramer vs Kramer".
Every article in that thing is pertinent to my life right now and basically I can't wait to take a long bath and read it cover to cover.
Funny, I don't feel that old. Well, my knees do.
I am feeling very anxious and vulnerable this week and have used my friend/foe- food. Hoping for a better tomorrow
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
