Measuring Up at 58 (Cosmo Cricket)


"58 years old; married 35 years; getting the youngest ready for college; 108 pounds; eats only healthy foods; walks, walks, walks; 0 days of work missed; blood pressure goes up and down (a result of my occupation . . . or is it too much caffeine?); I don't get enough sleep; I scrap during most (all) of my free time (I do clean house once a week and I make dinner and do dishes most days of the week); age spots (too much sun in my younger days); wrinkles (wish I could say they were from smiles); wish I could say I was gracious."

This layout was made for a Cosmo Cricket/Scrapbook Trends challenge.

Such a great page Cindy! It's good to see people do "me" pages because we so often forget ourselves. Thanks for dropping by my blog and your kind words about my cat. Greatly appreciated. Hugs, Jules.
