The Harsh Reality

Do you ever miss your old self?
That sounds weird.
But sometimes I miss my old self, maybe not my old intellectual self, but definitely my old body and sometimes my old face.

Like this morning, for instance, I decided that I had just enough time to either have a decent hair day or a good makeup day. I decided to go with the hair and just wear sunglasses to Wally.

Then, I get in the car and see this

I am very certain those are age spots! Now, I realize 30 is slowly but surely creeping up on me but I'm still 29! My face is starting to look like my Grandma's hands.

I need to take a closer look.

Ugggh, it's like one of those really really magnified mirrors. I can't look away.




6 witty remarks:

First: I have a 10X mirror for plucking eyebrows. Way scary. I recommend one if you are looking for something to keep you busy/horrified/depressed for hours.
Second: Those are freckles, I'm sure! : )
Third: You deserve some sort of award for posting those pictures on here. If I ever do that? You must come kill me because I will be so horrified the next day, I might "off" myself.
You can get away with it, cause you're so stinkin' cute. Blech.

Jill props to you girl! I read your blog and this is the first comment I've made because it takes GUTS to post those pics! Maybe it's easier for you cause you look so great!
