40 and Fabulous…

Fabulously freaked out, that is!! OMG! I’m FORTY! Ugh.

On this day in 1968 my mother went into labor. She said I was the easiest birth out of all her kids, but the most difficult to raise. Apparently, I just floated out. Sort of as a prequel of bigger and better things to come.

You know, I think I’m aging okay. Other than I’m starting to get farsighted and that’s sort of got me squicked, not too shabby. I think the thing that freaks me out the most is the same thing that freaked me out about 30.  It’s the whole, Oh dear lord, I’ve moved into another decade bracket.

I mean, I’ve gotten pretty used to saying “I’m in my thirties.” And now, I can no longer claim that fame. I’m seriously considering a “mid-life crisis.” But first I have to figure out how much effort and work it will take on my part before I commit to one. LOL. I have a feeling a mid-life crisis would be more trouble than it’s worth.

Any ways, just sharing my pain. So, how was 40 for you? And if you haven’t reached that age yet, what are your feelings about it. I mean, really up until this week, turning 40 was looking pretty inconsequential, then all of a sudden… BAM. It was like the whole thing hit me between the eyes.

    Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday, dear, dear Renee. Happy birthday to you!

    Mid-life crisis? ROFL, for what? Girl, you look good, you do good. You’re good. Besides, it would really take too much time focused on drama to pull off a mid-life crisis. And babe, we both know you don’t do drama outside of movies, LOL!

    I don’t think forty has much impact for me. Ask me again in January, though. I might have changed my mind, LOL!

    Love ya!

    Happy birthday girl. Mine was yesterday and I am 42. But I feel 22. My forthieth didn’t bother me with the exception of noone acknowledging it. i didn’t get cake or presents or anything. I think every one was trying to let me skate through it. but I think birthdays are better than the alternative. As the saying goes I woke up on the right side of the dirt so I’m doing alright lol.

    Emma Ray – Girl, you are only 29, talk to me when you’re 39. LMAO. And thanks for the birthday song! You are so right about the mid-life crisis, too much drama and energy for my taste. Love you, babe!

    Pamk – Thanks! You’re birthday is on the 8th! Happy Birthday to you! While I wasn’t in the mood to celebrate, I was forced into a dinner with family. I guess I’m okay with that. LOL.

    Mark – Of course I was naughty! Who you talking to? Due to the censorship practices of the FCC, FAA, NRA, and AAA, I cannot divulge the exact nature of my naughtiness, but trust me, it was hot. LOL. And awww, thanks!
