Finding the funny at midlife makes menopause, suddenly protruding tummies, lost youth and every other less-than-joyful part of aging a whole lot easier.
At times it can be difficult to see the humor through the hot flashes, but Marcia Kester Doyle’s book, Who Stole My Spandex? Midlife Musings From a Middle-Aged MILF (affiliate link) is a good place to turn for a touch of humor on those menopausally miserable days. While poking fun at everything around her – and especially at herself – Marcia Kester Doyle will help you to see the funny in your flab and the humor in your husband.
It’s not just humor that makes this book work. There’s genuine heart and emotion in each essay, and Marcia Kester Doyle’s love for her family comes through in everything she writes about them – however much she may seem to be frustrated, annoyed or amused by them and their antics.
Marcia Kester Doyle is funniest when writing about menopause and all the trials and tribulations that women experience at this time of our lives. Her honesty about the changes in her body, the loss of her youthful figure, the shock of becoming a middle-aged woman make her humor not only entertaining but entirely relatable. Who can forget the first time we got our periods…or the last?
Marcia Kester Doyle’s book Who Stole My Spandex? Midlife Musings From a Middle-Aged MILF is available on Amazon, and would make a perfect gift for your midlife friends this holiday season.
