Hanging On October 5, 2008

Saturday was my birthday.  Last year I turned 40.  I dreaded turning the big 4-0.  It seemed so old and I just wasn’t ready.  I tried to sneak it past friends and co-workers but somehow they found out (could it be Janeen’s big mouth??).  But turn 40 I did whether I was ready for it or not.  Well, I’ve had a whole year to get used to the idea of turning 40 and now I kind of like it.  So needless to say when my birthday rolled around this year I just wasn’t ready to let go.  If I could only stay 40 I wouldn’t feel so old.  Being OVER 40 just seems so much older than just being 40.  I tried hanging on…really I did.  But life doesn’t let you get away with things like that.  So now I am officially over 40.  Am I going to get used to this number?  Probably not.  Am I ever going to like being 40 something?  Ask me when I’m 50!
