AND THERE IS A LONGER SLEEVE VERSION FOR FALL!!!!!!
(this is one of my absolute favorite things in my wardrobe. I mostly wear it at home, without a bra)
Yesterday for some reason I became fixated on the idea that I will turn 46 this year (in November). I don’t FEEL like I’m almost 46 or feel like I LOOK almost 46, whatever the hell those things even mean…
I’m excited about 46, 47, 50, etc., and I generally feel great (except this pesky nausea I have now all the time around my period…), but today in Pure Barre my body reminded me that indeed, I am almost 46. I pushed through, but wow, I feel HOT and worn out.
Anyway, that’s neither here nor there, aside from the fact that my birthday is coming up in a couple months and IF I was going to treat myself to an Elizabeth Suzann Clyde Jacket, what color should I get?? That is the question. (I’m leaning towards clay)
Also, I do want to start a discussion about No One Tells You This, the single, childless, over-40 memoir of Glynnis MacNicol I finished a couple weeks ago. I’ve been thinking about the things we woman of a certain age without children, either married or single, struggle with*, and am looking for an appropriate outlet for talking about them. Here will do, for now. Overall, the book was very enjoyable (nicely written), but for me, difficult to relate to at all; it felt rather Sex And the City-ish at times, and other times very embellished.
*Okay, I will first qualify that I speak for myself only, maybe most women my age without children don’t reflect upon their decision after it’s made. But yes, even though I have come to terms with not having children (that is my “story”), I think sometimes about will I regret this later, being alone as I age (i.e., not surrounded by children and grandchildren as is the perceived “norm”), and I have felt it difficult to make friends as an adult women without children.
I suppose I long for some camaraderie with other women my age without children. I enjoy reading about others’ stories and experiences; it helps me feel less alone in my thoughts.
