binge eating truth

My truth that older women should hear

The truth shall set you free…..Honesty is good for the soul These are all great sayings but they never meant as much to me as they do today. At sixty-nine, I decided it was time to tell my story. I confess, I’m a binger and purger and it’s been going on since I was 20. […]

Friends age? Are yours much younger?

Friends as you age Strange question for the over 60’s. What age group to you have as friends? My husband and I wanted to move to Florida part time and the other part in Egypt. We are fortunate to have the availability to travel due to both of us retired from airlines. Every time I’m […]


Summer and sexy seniors

Summer weather is upon us, now what do we do?  Bathing suits, cover ups, shorts and sundresses, all the beautiful light clothing we like to wear for summer.  We put it on and check it out,,,hmm over the winter, we have more wrinkles, age spots and maybe a bit of fat or maybe more than […]

memories and travel

The memories! A walk down memory lane.

We are retiring, today I started packing up my home. The memories were playing in my head while I’m packing and taping the bubble wrap, so many years of saving things like little snippets of our lives.  My husband and I will be moving from our villa we’ve been in for 9 years to our […]

Downsizing and space saving, it CAN be done.

Downsizing Need to downsize, a smaller place they say, you’ll love it they say!  You get rid of stuff and pack what you’re sure you can manage.  Listen up, I will say this only once, It will not happen. There will never be enough space.  No matter how much you get rid of, there is […]

grown up and aging

Am I grown up yet?

50 and grown? No, not grown up yet. Hitting fifty, we realize that we don’t have to worry about losing friends and maybe this person won’t like us or maybe that person won’t. We have our friends, we know who they are. The ones that will stay with us forever, the ones who have our […]


Feeling ignored? Beware, times are changing!

Feeling ignored?  Do you ever talk to your kids or other younger people and they react to you as if they are tolerating what you say?  Do you get the feeling they are kind of dismissing you rather than paying attention to you?  Or the standard remark, “it’s not like that now, things have changed […]

Greying or not? Grey be gone!

The greying I wanted I really wonder if this is totally natural greying or not.  If it is, she’s got amazing grey hair! The follow-up for grey or not This is a follow-up to my previous post about greying. What I got At the time, it seemed like a great idea, about time I let nature […]

Take charge of YOU. The joy of it all!

Take Charge and Reduce Your Risk of Chronic Disease Take charge of your joy. Get out and find awe-inducing experiences.  I love that word “awe” because I’ve used it my whole life.  First time I was on an airplane, it described how I felt when the tube took off.  Got in the air and stayed […]

internet friends

Who said internet friends aren’t real?

Internet friends are real! Internet friends are amazing, this blog has been slow the past few weeks because no matter what I would do, my links were not working. I’ve tried asking people I know and checked out Word Press forums but nothing.  Being older, I remember DOS in computers but have no idea about […]
