Here It Comes

So I am turning 40 on Sunday. I must say I thought it would be a lot more graceful than this. I feel like I am heading into the future whining and crying and being pulled along by my feet by father time. When I imagined this day I imagined myself shoulder straight head up walking proudly into 40. But keep in mind I also imagined flying cars and weekend vacation to the moon (sort of a non cartoon Jetsons). But here I am 39.99999 and moving on. I am depressed sore and generally filled with anxiety.

I keep doing a mental recap of life so far and I think Hey Suzie buck up things are pretty good you've accomplished a lot. I wont go into my list of accomplishments as my mother would say its a kenahurah and will call the fates down to destroy any happiness I may have. But I think I have a pretty good list. But I still feel terrible as the big 40 descends.

I think I may be having a mid life crisis. And perhaps I should just embrace it. I mean I've already gotten the tattoo maybe I should get a bright red sports car and some arm candy Perhaps I should run away and join the circus or start a religious cult. But I think I may be too tired for all of that.

So instead I will go to bed at 9pm all this week wake up and drink decaf and try not too eat too many birthday cupcakes my son will make with love and probably some snot. Ain't aging grand.

Wait until you need the Ben-Gay and the reading glasses. I hope you have a happy birthday and that you can stay awake long enough to enjoy it.

We met right after we turned 15. Now, we're both about to turn 40.

Give us some credit, Suz.

WE MADE IT. ;)

I like what your friend "Cutter" is saying... You've made it... and give yourself some credit. Yay! 40 really is the new 20! :)

Not only did you make it, but you're fun, funny, beautiful and talented! If only everyone was like that at 40...you know people are jealous!

I dealt with 40 by getting an extra big cake! I love that you got a tattoo for your birthday. Hope it's a great one with happy surprises!

Happy Birthday Suzie.40's not bad at all! It's when you get on the wrong side of 55 that you think "That's enough now...yep, right here will do thank-you." Have a great day!!

Suzie, I hope you're not in a cave somewhere, mourning your lost youth! The forties are fun(!) and if they aren't you can always get medication!
