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!
