So today is my 40th Birthday. Woohoo! I must say for being such a milestone, I really don't feel any differently than I did yesterday. No, that's not entirely accurate.. now when I say my age, it feels OLD.
Anything starting with a "thirty-" gave me the illusion that I was "still in my thirties". In my opinion, the 30's were a pretty cool age period. I was old enough to finally figure out what I wanted to do as a career, I was mature enough to actually pursue that without wasting time, energy or money goofing off like I did in my 20's.
Now, I'm faced with thoughts like, "how soon til IT hits.." you know.. the big Scary M-word (that's menopause, for you folks following at home).. and "crap, all that weight I was going to lose in my 30's.. now I have to do it in my 40's, and it's even harder then -- ugh!". Oh and now I get to have annual mammograms, at least until the recent studies that show they should only need to be done every 5 years instead of every year become more widely accepted.
Gross, being a girl sucks sometimes.
