When you finally hit the age of having an empty nest, does the warranty on your body run out? It sure seems that way.
A sore back is no longer just a sore back. Now it requires physical therapy, nerve blocks, etc. Being a woman now means more than just a miserable week out of the month. Now it's yearly mammograms, hormone replacement, special pajamas made for hot flashes, and the list goes on.
Somehow it just doesn't seem fair that when you get to the point in your life when you have the time and still have the energy to really get out there and enjoy it...your body says "What the heck are you thinking?"!!
So here's to powering through. To the determination to enjoy this special time. To celebrating your empty nest!!!
