Midlife and Expiration Dates

Midlife & Expiration Dates

Just before I sat down to blog today, I had to grab a cup of coffee. Usually we have half n half on hand but not today! I was (as any coffee addict would) about to have a panic attack. Then I spied a half gallon of fat free milk. Winner Winner! Until I noticed the expiration date was February 14th. That’s close to two weeks old. So I smelled it, and couldn’t smell a thing. So YOLO and I poured it in my coffee. Tasted a little odd but I didn’t see any chunks in the milk so maybe it’s just in my head. I’ll let you know later. If things go south for me, I’ll make sure my hubby reports to Y’all where to send donations in lieu of flowers.

That got me thinking about our own expiration date. Midlife is around 35 and while I’m a little older than that, I consider midlife to last till you die. I mean, my own grandmother is still alive and she’s 99. You just never know. I do know that I plan to blog, travel, eat and drink margaritas till the very last day of my life. Whenever that is. I’m no longer making a bid deal about dying. It is what it is and you can’t control it. I would rather spend the rest of my life happy and not worrying about death than worrying about death and being miserable no matter how many days are left. However, I will worry about this expired milk for awhile. Starting to hear my stomach rumble.

Other things that expire that I have questions about:

  1. Canned goods. I know doomsday preppers that store them. So now if they expire, do preppers have to go out and buy new ones? And how about the people on The Walking Dead? They find canned goods all the time and eat them. What will they do when they expire?
  2. Sunscreen. I know now that you must throw away sunscreen after one summer. Otherwise you will burn your tushie off next summer.
  3. Opened Bottle of Booze. Yep. I know this. The taste goes sour and the potency can kill ya. (So I’ve heard). Wine doesn’t matter though. Just FYI.
  4.  Let’s be real, almost everything expires. Expect maybe honey, sugar and rice.

Ok enough talk about expiration dates. My stomach is in knots. And it’s really a dumb topic to be talking about. Especially since we are on the cusp of National Margarita Day! I hope you all can celebrate. It’s better than my own birthday!

Not to change the subject again (I am anyway) but anyone have recommendations on Netflix? I love Crime Drama and Sci-Fi-End of the world stuff. I feel like I have watched all of it. Even in other languages. I need new stuff. The last thing I watched was Horse Girl. Loved it actually. It’s a look at what a person goes through during a mental breakdown. Makes it a little too real. Worth watching though.

Just a reminder. If you love daily fun memes and aren’t offended easily, follow and like my FB and Insta Page! It’s like an online party everyday. I’m still working on getting my YouTube channel up and running. Hoping to inspire everyone with podcasts, vlogs, and fun celebrity guests! I know todays post was short and a bit all over the place, but this milk is taking a toll on me. I think I need to find a cheeseburger to soak up the expired milk.

And now some great picks from Amazon. You can click below to view the items I love. Just note that I do make money when you shop through my link! The money I make goes toward my Tequila purchases and my kids college tuition. Thanks in advance!

Peace Love & Margaritas!

  1. Guess when I become an end-of-the-world prepper, I should be sure to keep lots of honey, rice, and sugar on hand. Too bad coffee has an expiration date. 😔

  2. My sister was one of those preppers from her church beliefs. What she would do is use up and replace expiring foods. One of her friends would use and replace ongoing which makes the most sense to me. I would just die. I don’t have much on hand so if I can subsist on those two cans of tuna and two crackers I will be fine. The thought of no coffee is more frightening. I may have some bags of that and hope the bottled water holds out to make some kind of sun coffee. Oh, the cream. Sacrifices, I suppose… I hope your tummy doesn’t lurch. YIKES!! Netflix has Mystery Science Theater 3000 and I love it! If you have not watched them you are going to be tickled, I think.
