Friday Follow - 40 and Over - Bloggy Love

I'm all about supporting my fellow womankind, especially those that are over 40 because those bitches understand hot flashes, chin hairs, happy tears and random bouts of incontinence. So I thought I would sign myself up for the Friday Follow - 40 and over blog hop through my friend Leiah over at A Southern Belle Trying Not To Rust. If you don't know what a blog hop is, cause I sure didn't, it's explained below. Looks like I'm going to have some blog reading to do this weekend. I'm excited to visit the blogs listed below.

And for those that may be hopping over to my blog this weekend, here are a few random offerings from my world.

I woke up one morning in my early thirties and found my stick straight hair had suddenly and without assistance become naturally curly.

I quite possibly could be the most talented wii avatar creator on the face of the earth. Sometimes I’ll sit and create avatars for celebrities like Dr. Phil, Bono and Oprah so I can run into them when I’m working out on wii fit.

I will go out of my way to see a marching band perform.

I have never been able to get away with wrong doing as I was cursed by my mother with the propensity to get caught.

I passed this curse down to my children. My oldest son obtained a light porn video around the age of 14. I innocently ejected it from his VCR, popped it into a Blockbuster movie case and returned it along with our other rentals. Not only do we get caught but we are caught in the most outlandish, publicly humiliating ways imaginable. Busted.

My friends and I believe we have to sit still with the dark times that sometimes invade our lives, believing that we must go through them to clear out the debris and make way for new growth.

Speaking of dark times, peri-menopause sucks. I hope they find a cure for it one day.

Hormonally yours,

Zen Mama


  1. Nice list. I wanted to mention I like the new background.

  2. Hey! I'm your newest follower! We have something HUGE in common! I like to stalk, too!

  3. I will go out of my way to see a marching band perform.

    Oh, we could be REALLY, REALLY good friends!!

    Hi, I'm stopping by from Follow Friday 40 & Over. I wanted to say hello and share some comment lo♥e. I {{heart}} marching band, especially since my 2 youngest daughters have been in their high school band it the last 5 years (one for 4, one for 2). My 18 y/o, who just graduated, was the drum major for 3 years and my 15 y/o daughter, who plays sax, is at band camp right now preparing for the upcoming fall football season. WOOT!

    I just became your newest Follower and I would really like it if you would take a minute to check out my blog and follow me, too, if you like what you see.

    I hope you have a really wonderful weekend!

  4. Oh .... way too funny and I hear you on the perimenopause crap! Geez ... why did nobody warn us about this freakin stage of life????

    Anywho ... back to brief moment of hormonal balance aka sanity ... I just popped over from Java's Follow Friday 40 and Over. I'm following you now and look forward to more of your acerbic wit!

  5. Are you kidding me? That is exactly what happened to my hair when I turned 40. Seriously.

  6. Ahhh - thanks for the shout out there girlie! The blogosphere hasn't been the same without your wit and talent for making me either cry, laugh until I cry or think about something you've written for hours after I've read it. WOW - was that a run-on sentence or what? All that matters is you've been missed!

  7. Okay, I'm not over 40, but I have hot flashes enough that my son felt the need to warn his little friend-loudly-at the pool, "Be careful. My mom gets hot flashes." Yeah, it was awesome. If public humiliation= awesome. Thank God only one other person was at the pool and it was a lady!

  8. Julie - thanks, I like it too. It's calm and simple - two things I am not!

    Sue Mac - thanks for stopping by, life wouldn't be the same if we didn't have our passions to stalk.

    Teresa - You know exactly what I'm talking about with the marching band thing. Isn't it the best?

    Ro - thanks for hopping over and sharing your hormonal humor as well.

    Annabelle - shut up! I can't believe the same thing happened to you. I considered it God's way of giving me permission to be frizzy. BTW - I love your name and I adore those rags of yours as well.

    Leiah - just realized I butchered your name in my blog post. Going to fix that now. Thanks for the wonderfully kind run-on sentence. I feel all warm and fuzzy now.

    Candance - you certainly carry the attitude of an over 40 chick. What was your son thinking anyway? Be careful, she might spontaneously combust?

  9. Well, I came back to see who else was added and your background in smokin! That's more you.


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear from you.
