Who Stole My Spandex? Life in the Hot Flash Lane by Marcia Kester Doyle

Blogger Marcia Kester Doyle tells it like it is and nothing is off limits. Who Stole My Spandex? is a witty selection of stories from Doyle's madcap world of menopausal pitfalls, wardrobe malfunctions, and a family full of pranksters. This clever compilation includes laugh-out-loud pieces like "Queen of Klutz," "One Size Fits None," and "Hands off my Egg Roll!" From couples' colonoscopies to nightmare holidays to disappearing spandex, no topic--no matter how crazy or unimaginable--is too taboo. With a heavy dose of self-deprecating humor, and a dash of sentiment, this marvelous collection of anecdotes will resonate with anyone who's ever felt the call of nature at exactly the wrong time. Welcome to the nuthouse that Marcia Kester Doyle calls home.

This book is straight up fantastically hilarious, and the author has a knack for shining the best light upon ugliest of the ugly situations that happen in daily life, particularly when facing them during the trying time of menopause. Her witty humor has beckoned me to read this a second time, much to the dismay of my husband who gets awakened my my giggles in the middle of the night while I'm reading it due to lack of sleeping from hot flashes and night sweats. Not only does it resonate with the menopausal momma, but the kindness and love and support of her family brings tears to one's eyes. Keep up the great writing -- and I'll keep reading!

This book is about Marcia Kester Doyle's life and the problems of a middle-aged woman. It's told in short stories like blog posts. After reading the blurb, I expected a humorous book about being a middle-aged woman. While there are some funny things in this book, it's basically about an older woman's life that is pretty sad. She clearly loves her family and finds her children's antics funny. I just thought I would never have let my children behave the way her's did. I didn't think some of the things they said and did were funny - just rude. I'm in the same position in life as she is and have raised 4 children as well. While I look back on my life and find it mostly good but some not so much, I don't imagine that the events that mean so much to me would be of interest to anyone else. That's how I felt about some of the situations Marcia wrote about. After reading the acknowledgements at the end of the book I felt bad that I couldn't give a better review because it was clear that Marcia has loved her life and the people in it. Please note I received a complementary copy from publisher in exchange for an honest review.
