MONEY RAISING

Have you noticed the people standing by the side of the road or store with the signs that basically says a variety of reasons but the true meaning is.... GIVE ME MONEY, BECAUSE I WANT MONEY AND YOU KNOW YOU HAVE SOME TO GIVE ME.... stuff???? I have decided after seeing pictures of me, that this is a way I will be able to finance some serious flaws that age is afflicting on me......




If you can take your eyes off of that gorgeous babe for one second.....Just take a look at my eyes. Age has decided to play a trick, a very evil bad trick on me. What used to be hollow eyelids, gravity is now pulling them down over my eyes soon blinding me. And the bags????? If intervention does not happen, I will be tripping over them as I walk. I thought gravity was doing a number on my "girls", but the bags are definitely taking first place in this gravity pull.

So tonight I will be making a sign that will say....

"Desperately in need of your help to fund a life saving surgery, before I become blind and unable to walk"

I'm thinking this just might be the answer to plastic surgery needs.

***If this is your means of income, this post is not meant to demean you.... It is posted as a tongue in cheek funny kind of post...

My Mom actually had that eyelid surgery a few years back. It was covered under insurance because it was affecting her vision. (She wears contacts.) She wouldn't have done it if she'd had to pay for it herself. She looked really "surprised" for a few months until I got used to it and now I don't even notice. I agree with Doris, save your $, you look fan-bleepin-tastic!
Thanks for the comments on my blog and yes DH has seen the Lisa Ling thing plus, GWCA DVD and went a seminar with GWCA in December. Not even a budge. Humph...

Sorry, didn't proof read before publishing. Missed a "to" in that last part. That drives me crazy. A little OCD thing...

You are so NOT 50!!! That was a (not so) funny trick you played on us!!! You're not even 40, are you?

Your eyes look great - save your pennies, for gorgeous bits for Tate!!!

Kristen said...

Happy Belated Birthday!!!

AND OMG.. stop being so hard on yourself. You look beautiful... and I did NOT believe you when you said you just turned 50!! I wouldn't have given you 40!

I agree with everyone else... save those pennies for fun days with Tate!

Stephe said...

I see NO bags or droopy eyelids! You still look like you're in your 30's!!! You've got those "good genes" Lucky girl! :)

kris said...

I think you look marvy and nothing is needed. You are holding up fab!

Have to admit, I've considered a little nip, tuck meself about those parts ;0)

Andrea said...

You make me laugh!!

Joannah said...

I think you look beautiful in that picture!

My dad and his twin brother have had their eyelids "done". They are not metrosexuals, either! They just were having a hard time seeing as their eyelids aged. So, go for it if you're really noticing that your vision is impaired.

Stacy said...

I still can't believe you are 50! I think you look wonderful!

Kramer said...

I think you look wonderful! My family thought I was kidding when I told them it was your big 50th. They said that because they have seen those pictures of you (remember that they also stalk my secret pals) and they think you look so young.

PromiseKeepersDaughter said...

No don't do it you look mauvy! Still can't believe you are 50.

Besides I know a lady who is like 65 who had it done to the extreme that she looked like Nermal the cat from Garfield! ;O)

OK - it is so funny you posted this because just on Saturday I was looking in the mirror and realized how much my lids have fallen - and the wrinkles....dear god. I would LOVE an eyebrow lift and I swear I would do it - but now I feel guilty because that is money that can be spent for Hannah.... but I SOOO get where you are coming from. The stress really can take a toll on ya.

BUT....personally, I think you look great. (that baby is sooo cute too!)

Shannon said...

HA HA HA HA...man I'm rolling over here. TOO funny! And I thought you looked pretty. All this time I've been wondering what you look like, and now I know! :-)

wzgirl said...

Actually, you look incredible!! Gorgeous, I tell you.

My sister and I have the same problem. We got it from our dad. He had his eyelid tuck in his 60's covered by insurance. I don't know if I can wait that long. If you wait long enough...maybe you will collect enough for your co pay.

Headmeister said...

First of all, you are a beauty - no need for a scalpel AT ALL

Second, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!

And third, if anyone out there reading your post earns their living by panhandling - and is still able to settle in woth a pc and surf the net, then I gota start making up my own sign....
