Today is National Wine Day, and as a lady of a certain age who takes various medications that disallow such consumption, I’ve decided to deem it National Whine Day!
I’m crabby. At some point a few years ago, I entered into a semi-permanent state of whine. From waking up with one limb asleep for no darn reason, to furiously needing my low-acid Guatemalan coffee to start my morning, to fuming at the incredibly slow line at every deli counter in the entire world, I live in a tsk-tsk-state of mind. At this very moment, I’m actually whining about not being able to drink wine on Wine Day! See my problem?
Are you a member of my Grouse Group?
Did we choose to become these creaky curmudgeons? They say menopause changes us in many fundamental ways, from bone density to disrupted sleep patterns, night sweats, and for this Leftat50, such a chronic stiff neck I now have to turn my ENTIRE BODY to back out of a parking space! What the heck happened!!!!
Don’t we all deserve the right to drink from our own personal Whine Glass?
Of course we do. The real question is, do we want to be that kind of 50-something? The furrowed brow tribe who always carries that stupid gum that won’t ruin dental work in our purses? Hell no! We are the “fit at 50” generation! The “bucket listers” to the N’th degree!
Actually, we have no reason to bellyache. But since this is Whine Day, I’m suggesting we all indulge ourselves. Run over our ugliest pair of “readers.” Flush the contents of every bottle of useless “wrinkle-reducing” anything down the toilet! Cut up our Spanx! (K, maybe that’s going too far) But just for today. Tomorrow, we really all should get back on the Happy Horse. Swallow the stupid pills we need to maintain our health and indulge in a whine and wine-free day!
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
