The Clutterful, Middle-Aged Mind

My car, kitchen, family room, bathroom and bedroom are all clean, spiffy and clutter-free, with no discernible physical disorder. My 54-year-old mind, however, is full of worry, junk, overload and stress.

This is exactly how I feel:

Please tell me you can relate…..  ?

    every day I relate to this. half the time I know the words to use, but they don't come out and it takes 15 words to say what I could with one word.
    There's got to be a way to organize our minds like our closets…maybe when a thought comes, we ask,"do I need to deal with this TODAY?" If not, we junk it, because I don't feel our minds will let us delete everything yet. Lois

About Me

It's true! Despite playing defense virtually all my life against the onslaught of this sometimes-ugly aging process, it...has...arrived! I naively thought I would escape cellulite (the Cottage Cheese) and crow's feet (the Crepe Paper). But I didn't! And why didn't anyone tell me about this emotional roller-coaster that comes with being an Empty-Nester?! My name is Jodie Barringer Myers. I'm a 54-year-old Friday/chardonnay/ hydrangea-loving wife/mom/court reporter living in Sacramento (Gold River!), California. Writing is cathartic for me. And because I look to find humor and humility among the rubble that is my now very peri-menopausal self, I'm hopeful that you will laugh, cry, learn, enjoy and, most of all, relate to what I have to say. After all, we're all in this together, right?
