The Big Four-Oh

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.



  1. Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 64. Oh, my God! I'll be 64 in less than 2 months. Remember, getting old doesn't suck - Being old sucks! Happy birthday.

  2. Happiest of 40th birthdays, my dear, delicia! Love you always and forever, no matter your age! Wicked xoxoxoxo

  3. Never fear - 40 is fab and so are you! Besides, would you really want to be 20 again?? The 40s are great.
