So, it is fourteen days to my son’s wedding and no I am not ready …yet. But that is of little consequence, as I live my life not ready. I tried to change that a few times. You know the not being ready and stuff but I swear it is part of my genetic makeup. And I have faith that it will work out and it always does.
Now I am pretty happy with who I am and how I look. I love my body; the way I move, the way I think, the fact that I do laps most days in the pool, I have energy and I revel in the joy of life. And no I am not particularly attractive nor would I fit anyone’s idea of a perfect weight but that is also of little consequence. I am young, generally only date men years younger as that is where the mutual attraction seems to be, but do not think of myself as age discriminate.
That whole thing is not where I used to be in my head, it has grown and developed over the years. Yesterday my sis and I decided to look through the mall to see what kind of suitable dresses might be out there. One sales lady asked what I was looking for and I told her my son’s wedding.
Well she directed me to a rack and my response was …Oh no they are all too old looking. I’m only sixty-four. I don’t want old lady dresses! She darn near choked on her chewing gum! But that also is of little consequence. No Heimlich maneuvers were required and no sales ladies were hurt.
I decided a little Detox & Cleanse would be in order. Just to perk me up. Though I must confess that I have tried it before and lost interest after a few days. Losing interest in such things is also part of my genetic makeup.
I chose natural capsules of some sort: two twice a day for seven days and then one once a day for seven days because that works into my time frame for said miracle. It promises to; reduce belly bloat ( I did not know that is what excess adipose tissue of the abdomen was), reduce body waste build up (I thought nature sort of took care of that in the form of evacuation of..), support colon and digestive system (is that not the same as above?), support the livers natural detoxification process, make you feel lighter and more energized. Gotta say the last two points sold me.
So no dress yet. Actually a lot of things not done yet, but by all that is mighty my colon and liver should look great for the wedding!
Now I am off to swim and yes to do my taxes, as they are due TODAY!

    1. Well the sad news is you take two capsules in morning and two at night. The even sadder news is that it does not work. I cut my diet, was more active and gained three pound a of what appears to ne belly flab…so too am finished with that. Have tried probiotics before and should have remembered that for me they do not work!
      There are better cleanses out there like the Master Cleanse but that seemed like too much work which proves you always get what you pay for! Yikes!

  1. I love your optimism! And good for you telling that sales lady those dresses were too old! I had a sales lady ask me if she could help once, I told her I was looking for a dress (which I hate) for my brother’s wedding. She asked where it would be, I told her. She looked at the dress I had in my hand and I asked her if it was nice. She said “well, it is only cotton”. I didn’t know they made dresses of spun gold!

    I hope the cleansing works. Haven’t tried that yet. Though increased energy has me intrigued. Let me know how it goes before you lose interest. 🙂

    You make me smile!

    1. Oh cotton is a no no?? Will be happy to let you know how “the cleanse”. goes. So far tonight the belly appears puffy. Although that could have been the beer and nachos with chili I had. Yikes,

  2. Hello Bridge –

    We always feel we’re unprepared for upcoming events in our lives, especially big and emotional ones like your son being married. Everything always works out the way it’s supposed to work out. This isn’t always the way we had ordered it, but it does work out. Nice post and happy Saturday to you. 🙂

      1. Strange, like in “The Twilight Zone” music, lol. I like your site also. I hope you enjoy all my stories. Many are very funny and some are emotional, “A Mother Whispers Goodnight.” That’s a fiction story that has many real life themes in it from my birth.

I love to hear your thoughts on this!
