Picking and Plucking!

When your a teenager you are always picking! Picking at your face picking at your hair, you know splitting frizzies! Well now that I am in my 50's I am obsessed with plucking, and not only my eyebrows! How can I say this without feeling terribly embarrassed in my hormonal, menopausal way, OK MY FACE! I went through the change at 33, right after I had Ben. I've been on hormones since then, I'm only taking half the dosage now and I've gotten quite furry in the face. When Ben was home he'd say you have a moustache. I'd just smirk and say you're just jealous! Well now I'm self conscious about the downy white fuzz all over my face! I sit at night watch TV, and pluck away. My husband always walks by and says "What are you doing"? I say "nothing", and think to myself MYOB! Before plucking I waxed and ended up with little burns around my mouth where I pulled the skin off! Now that I've plucked I'm afraid I'm going to get full on whiskers. I've noticed older women who literally have long hairs growing out of their upper lip, and chins! Is that going to happen to me? I know I've made fun of women for going in to get Botox, face lifts and such(and that's why I'm probably getting whiskers)but I want to get electrolysis. Is that bad? Is it expensive? Will it hurt? What is a vain fuzzy faced woman to do?

President Obama

This is the first time in my life that the President of the United States is younger than me.......sad! I am glad that he was elected, and yes I voted for him. It is frustrating to me that church members and family members have called him evil, or the Anti-Christ and that he will ruin the moral of the country. Who are you to judge, God? EVERYONE is a Child of God.

I don't think anyone sets out to ruin the country they live in. I feel bad that President Bush is leaving his Presidency with the country in shambles. How hard for him, I feel empathy for him. I have never openly criticized President Bush, or his character. I've heard some pretty horrible things said about President Obama. Makes me feel heart sick to think about them. Would you honestly feel good about repeating them to our Father in Heaven?

I don't think anyone I associate with even knows I'm a Democrat by the things I say. I pretty much keep my political self to myself, and my family, and guess I did mention it in another post.

President Obama will not make you do anything that you don't want to do, anymore than President Bush made me do things I didn't want to, and yes there were a few but I didn't complain.

Last I checked the "Church" was based on free agency with blessings and consequences given as needed. I get tired of everyone in Utah thinking that if you live in Utah you're "Mormon" which I am and a very good one at that(mostly good anyway)! And Republican which I am not! If just the mere fact that I mention that I am a Democrat offends you just think how offended the three other Utah County Democrats, and I am when you speak ill of someone we respect and admire. Think before you speak not everyone believes, and feels as you do. The majority do(lucky you!) but there are a few of us(3) who think differently, and you really don't have anymore of a "spiritual in" than we do. Pray for your President, pray that he does well and helps the country that you live in! Every night I have prayed for our President and I didn't even vote for him, and I will continue with our new President! I've had my rant, now talk amongst yourselves!
