Arriving at the airport at least 2 hours early to find a parking situation, take a tram to the airport terminal, stand in long lines to check in and then get security checks, sitting at the gate forever with a lot of tired cranky people and screaming babies, being crammed into a tight space for hours, and then finding your luggage, renting a car, finding the hotel in a strange city....
Many are learning that flying is not the convenience we once thought. I recently was looking at a flight to LA and realized in under 6 hours I could drive there versus the airport and it sounded so much more peaceful and less likely to get me acquiring a head cold from a stranger.

Now that my husband is retired, we have decided to start taking more cruises. We took a Hawaiian cruise in 2006 on our 25th wedding anniversary. We brought our daughter and son with us along with a friend of each kids. It was a blast. Now that they are adults, married with kids, we feel this time is for us. This Alaskan cruise is the first of many to come. Our next one is already booked. Mexico, here we come.

When we women turned from girl to adolescent and then teen and young woman, we didn't fight it. We embraced it.
Yet, for some reason, as we go through menopause, we want to fight hard to remain what we were instead of what we can be.
If we had done this when we were younger, we'd be in college in pigtails and jumpers.
Embracing the change is exhilarating as for the first time in our lives, we can be us personified instead of what others need us to be.
