THAT Woman?

When did I become THAT woman? And yes, I do use the term woman loosely.

When did I become THAT woman with the bratty, irreverent kids in church?
When did I become THAT woman who is not as spiritual as she once was? Or the woman who spends more time plucking the hair on her chin than styling the hair on her head?

When did I become THAT woman who can't make it through life without her "happy pills" or she is afraid the bodies will pile up in the backyard?

WHO IS THAT FAT WOMAN STARING BACK AT ME IN THE MIRROR???!!! When did I become my mother? (NO.....I did NOT say you were fat mom...)

When did I become THAT cynical, angry woman? Or the mother of a drug dealer facing 20 years? When did I start crying or laughing at the most inappropriate times? And WHERE in the helk did this muffin top come from???

Today is my 27th anniversary!!! What would I do without the greatest thing that has ever happened to me? Does he roll over in the morning and say to himself..."When did I marry THAT woman?" Well...we both are going to have to suck it up!!! No he did not sign up for the wrinkles and mean mom eyebrow line... but hey! Neither did I! When he decides to fork out for the plastic surgeon, botox, and looney bin...not to mention a housekeeper...then we will chat...till then, we are both stuck with me!!

P.S. Hamster...I bought you a present! I bought you a present! (I'm singing that)

I am THAT woman, but I can't tell you when it happened. What I want to know is why doesn't it happen That woman or That woman? Why wasn't I one of them! Happy 27th. ; )

You could have become THAT women right along the side of me. But instead you have to be just a tiny bit younger. Love you

Really? What happened to denial?

Oh my goodness. You don't even know what a bad day/week/month/year I have just had and your news just cheered me up. I am jumping up and down with glee. At least I would if I had even an ounce of energy left. However you got to be that woman, I must have been right beside you because I feel the same way. That was so well put. Amen sister.

Bloggin Betty said...

I became THAT woman as soon as I had kids...

Crazy Cousin said...

I never had kids so I escaped becoming THAT woman UNTIL I moved in with my mother and watched her turn into a 3 yr old before my eyes. Now I am stuck here being a mother in my fifties. See, at least you got it out of the way already! My solution is always birthday botox along with a glorious spa day that includes massage and lunch with friends. Anually you can feel better at least!I look forward to it!

Amy Joy said...

Boy Mom said...

Happy anniversary! Really great bloggers comment on your blog I'm not one of them, I'm more like THAT blogger. Hope you don't mind an extra comment or two.

I was never THAT girl....and all of a sudden I too am THAT woman! I hate it!!! I am so cranky sometimes that I want to run away from me! (whisper to me what you got NHC!)

Missy said...

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Delena said...

Great post as always. I have become that woman too. It's the pits getting old.

Chief said...

OH NO! I am totally freaking out here! WHEN DID I BECOME....YOU!?

Delena said...

Thanks for your comment on my forest craft studio. That is so concidental because as husband is building it, he is liking it a little bit too much and calling it his "man cave". NO bloodly way. He is literally chasing me and all my crafts out of our cabin. His friend said Jim should put a lock on the outside....

Jaclene said...

Aunt Cari...you've always been THAT Woman that I look up to, admire, and am grateful for. THAT Woman that everyone looks at and wonders, "How does she do it?" You are THAT Woman who loves and serves and stands tall. Thank you for being THAT Woman that I hope to be! Love you. Oh, yeah, but you are THAT Woman that gave my daughter Elvis...Thanks a lot! Ugh!!!

I now see our common bond- Wellbutrin or Lexapro?
