I’m Ana. I’m a 53-year-old mom who acts like a 12 year old. I think the same as I did in my 30s but feel like an 80 year old. My hobbies include reading, eating, and scrolling social media. I have chronic pain and I’m 50-75 lbs overweight, and I’m too lazy and set in my ways to do anything about it. I have a high-schooler and a 23-year-old who lives on his own. I started this blog years ago, let it go for a while, and now I am bringing it back because I am tired of the perfect mommy blogs, and the middle-aged blogs I have seen still feel like my mom’s kind of thing.
I will be posting about parenting struggles, weight struggles, the recent update of my home, friend drama, self-love, marriage, mid-life divorce, kids, sex, weed, shopping, reading, TV, movies…nothing is off the table.
I will have some regular guest posts as well. And welcome related guest posts and collaboration.
