so you may or may not know that i turned 40 in january........i know, save the over the hill comments. i remember when my dad turned forty, i thought it was so old! now here i am.

so some interesting things about turning the big 4-0...........the week of my birthday i had night sweats. really truly. i had to wash my sheets a couple of times that week from all the sweat. remember what it is like those first few weeks after you have had a baby and all the meds are coming out of your body and you have nights sweats. anybody, anybody???? well that is what it was like! at first i did not think anything about it, but then i started having mini hot flashes at work. i would get all red and hot and my hands would swell up! YUCK!!!!

But the ultimate grossness..........the other day i was getting ready for work, putting on my eye shadow when this thing....this huge ugly white hair was protruding from my right eyebrow!!!! what the heck???? I am way too young for that! i immediately plucked that huge ugly white hair from my eyebrow and started searching for others.......thank goodness there was only one!

40 is to young for bushy eyebrows......that is reserved for grumpy old men who have nose hair and ear hair and bushy eyebrows! and if you remember this post from last year ( on getting old) i was worried that i was going to lose my eyebrows. what a difference a year and less estrogen will do.
