That not-so-fresh-feeling

Why did I think being a grown-up would be easy?

I'm 37 now and I'm at that "awkward" age where I have both zits and wrinkles. I have grey hairs that can't come in borderline straight like the rest of my hair. No, oh no. They have to come in curly so they can REALLY stand out. *sigh*

Then, I have a preschooler and two school-aged kids to care for as well as two aging parents who still think I'm the mediator for their issues with one another.

Calgon, take me away!

    Don't whine to me about gray hairs.

    I just wish the beard would go ahead and turn white -- this patchy thing looks like mange. I'm thinking about coloring it, even though I'd feel like a dork.

    Gadfly - no one would likely notice the color if you do it subtley and over time. And NDT, I, too, find the salt and pepper thing sexy. :)

    KR - I knew what image it would conjure. :) I remember those commercials, too.

    yeah...I got ya. 35 toddlers, I live parent for each of us, and they require more supervision and worry than the kids most days..

    that is where the gray hair comes from

    You couldn't pay me enough to work taking care of other people's children. No way, no how. I think folks like you are genuine gems!
