So the quest to look younger begins!

And it should have begun a long time ago.

I just turned 37. I don’t like the way I look in the mirror. My skin is starting to look ragged. I want to look 27 again, or at least slow the aging process and repair my skin discolorations and spots, and finally get rid of my *gasp* adult acne, shrink my pores, etc, etc! I wanna hold off on botox and fillers, but if you told me I could have some free botox tomorrow, I’d be there! (vain much? – you bet… I’ll admit it)

Thus I begin my journey with Retin-A (tretinoin) tonight. I need to take before pictures tomorrow and maybe weekly thereafter. I have to see for myself how this works. And I do have all the faith in the world that this will work very nicely. I’m just curious how long it will take, what the end result will be and will it prevent me from getting wrinkles, or at least slow down the process.

So, here’s to some Retin-A fun! I’m excited!

If anyone had or has any experience with Retin-A, give me a shout and let me know what your experience was or is like?

Fatigue should be my middle name…

But I do like Anna, which is my real middle name. Hehe.

I just can’t win, especially at the end of a 28 day cycle (no, not that kind of cycle). My medication cycle, which I get every 28 days. I can feel nearly a week ahead of my scheduled infusion that my body is jonesing for my meds.

So, I did go to bed early yesterday like I planned. Yay! However, it took me a bit longer than I wanted to fall asleep. I remember looking at the clock and it said midnight – 40 minutes after I laid my tired head down on my pillow. It was a great sleep though, but I definitely do not feel well rested. Ugh. Fatigue is still plaguing me – thus I am trying to wake up with some coffee as I sit here in the upstairs viewing area this morning of Al’s gymnastics class.

Maybe if I make it a trend to go to bed earlier, it will make a difference. But this Monday, after my medication I should be good to go by Tuesday afternoon.

Holy Hiatus!

Hi again! Long time no type on here. Almost forgot about this place. Almost…  Just needed a nudge to think about starting to post here again.

I need to get a new updated look because my boys have gotten so big and are no longer my little babies. (Anyone designing blogs, hook a mama up!)

Ironically, I usually stay up super late at night (shame on me, I know) but my body has finally won the fight with my brain – my brain says, stay awake and do stuff or catch up on DVR, but tonight for the first time in months, my body is telling me to crawl into bed and sleep for more than 5 hours.

So good night all! I hope that I will become more active on here. I should probably do one of those daily posting thingies. Hehe. We’ll see if my life is exciting enough for that!

To bed before 11:20. Wow.
