Now this is what I am talking about----the group is growing---got some friends!
I don't know about you girls, but turning 50 & getting older has been a joy for me! Wish I could go back & change a few things, but we can't---those choices you made, that will follow you forever---wish my kids, would listen to me say that, but they don't get it yet. Of course living with my special man, that is 13 yrs younger, doesn't hurt either. But as we all know, he can't keep up with me!! Life is good---
Have a wonderful evening----------
Yes I am toally enjoying this stage in my life. It just happened to fall in my 50's. Our son is in college. My hubby and I enjoy doing more things together. I have the house to myself more. The gasoline and grocery bills are a lot less. Now if I could just get the dog to stop taking my slippers...
I'll be 50 this March, and I too am enjoying life. As you said choices will follow you forever...well the choices that are following me and my husband for life are that my son and his wife did drugs,throwout her pregnancy...poor baby was born addicted. LONG story we have full custody of her.
we are parents again!! my son is in jail and my daughter-in-law doesn't even see her birth daughter.
before my son went to jail he and his wife had another child, my grandson. I call the daughter in law my nightmare in law, she has turned my world upside down and takes not responsibility at all. NEVEr did I think at this stage in my life I would be a mommy again. I just don't know were I fit in any more,I don't fit in with the 20year old and can't understand the empty nest. lost at 50!
Hey Laura---I know the feelin--my fiance-dgt in law is a total bitch! She has filed a restraining order on my oldest dgt (35)---its a long story--will go into later---this is why I haven't been online---between work & life shit---not much time---lost at 50, its a horrible feeling, you don't know where to turn or what to do, but I have learned at 56, some things I just can't control, letting go & saying NO--is what I am trying to do now...good luck...stay in touch...have a wonderful day!!
