Music Monday: I Will Not Be One Of Those People!

Well, welcome back to everyone who enjoyed a Thanksgiving break last week. Ours was pretty mundane; HUBS, PT and I went off to his parents' house to eat, talk and eat some more. I was surprised my mom came along, she's always invited to their various holiday celebrations, but has only gone once. She found out she would have a four day weekend, though, and it changed her mind.

Remember how I told you about my birthday last week? And how old I was feeling? Well, I've really got a lot of work to do now. I do not want to be one of those old people who takes medicine day and night, spends all their time at the doctor or who looks and feels older than they are. Aside from the birthday, the thing that's brought this on is my stupid sinus infection. I had to get another round of meds from the doctor, know what? If I count the vitamins I take, I know have seven daily rounds of health additives.

Um...I'm only 38! That's too many pills and sprays and gummy chews and oils for someone who's not even fucking 40 yet!

I cannot wait to be over this infection so I can go back to preventative medicine. While that will help me not feel so old, I also need a serious attitude adjustment. I know you're only as old as you feel, so I need to keep my mind and body active enough to slow the atrophying.


There! Take that, body and bad, depressive attitude!

Now, let's get pumped!

How do you keep feeling young?

Keep young? You know, the best way is to avoid stress, but I also make sure to still do the things I enjoyed as a kid. I find the people who really seem old are the ones that really act old, you know.

I swear by the 1000mg of vitamin C that I've been taking every day for a few years now. I rarely catch colds, etc. since I started taking so much of it.

I love Maggie Rose's song! I heard it on the radio a couple of weeks ago and get so excited when it comes on.

Scott: Good advice. I'm trying so hard not to act old, while still acting my age, you know?

Jeri: I thought about adding an extra dose of Vitamin C to my regimen, but I already take so much stuff: fish oil, multi-vitamin, B Complex, Vitamin D3. But, whatever works, works!

Lynette: I'm not a super country music fan, but that song just does it for me. Glad you visited and found something you liked!
