Hello 40 (yeah, yeah, I know, I have a month to go)

OK, so the deal is, we turn 40 and have a mid-life crisis. Well, some of us do. I think it is written somewhere that this is supposed to happen. Some talk show clued me in on it. Thanks alot Oprah. I am freaking out because I can't figure out what I want my mid-life crisis to be! I know alot of you are saying, "It picks you!" but seriously, don't I get a say? Whether or not I have one, I invite you all to join me in a rollercoaster ride of going through the following questions: Who am I? Where did I come from? and Where am I going? Hopefully it won't sound as pathetic as it did as I typed it. Feel free to comment. I promise I won't delete what you write (yeah right, whatever). Remember, this is my pending mid-life crisis and I will freak out and be frazzled if I want to!

  1. Go for the Norma Desmond look ( Turban and sunglasses inside a dark house) while eating Ben and Jerry's and doing shots of tequila. But don't do both together. They didn't mix well in your 20's and you know it aint gonna be any better when you are 40!

    "40 is the new 30" THEY say.

  3. Dearest, you were my junior year prom date. Wanna talk about feeling old? My closest friends here are all in their 20s. My mom said that one of the worst things about getting old was feeling ugly. Not actually being ugly (because mom is not!), just feeling that way. I'm kind of feeling like that. And I'm sorry if it offends anyone that I'm talking about superficial issues, but that's how I feel. I love you though. A whole lot. My life history would be nothing without you.

    Ahhhh, perhaps not what you wanted for the debut of your blog. I love you and miss you a whole bunch.

  4. Ah, Marg. Miss you too! Turning 40 deals with mental and superficial. I apply enough creams on my face yet pretend not to care what people think. LOL. I am in a state of flux. I can say that my eyes have gotten worse, I am at the most 10 years away from bifocals. My beard has grey in it, and I now creak when I get up each morning! I will take a little vanity where I can get it!

  5. All in all,I find that no matter what the numerics are in your life, doing things that you love to do,and making a impact on others, is by far the greates remedy for turing older. I also find the older you get the mroe people repsect what you say, no matter if it is BS or not, lol.
    Forget the mirror, and use your soul as your gage for happiness.

    Corny, but real.

  7. I'm 5 years into my crises and still haven't figured it out. I think I crises peaked early when I got my tattoos in my 30s! :-\ I'll go with you to get another tatto? Maybe you should join the community theater; I know you don't like motorcycles and you can't afford a sports car; Are you afraid of heights?....hang-gliding, jumping out of airplaces or maybe a balloon ride? Mid-life sometimes spurs the yearning to learn something? You have alot of hobbies but do you know how to horseback ride or maybe take up a real sport? (no, gardening is not a sport) I'll keep you posted on any new ideas. :-)))
    Love you bro..........Sher

  8. I have pictures of that Junior Prom...I took 40 as my motivation to become what I have been dreaming of. That means starting my prerequisites for nursing and then midwifery school. I have a lot of enormous goals for the second half of my life. Feeling excited, scared and blessed I can pursue them.

  9. I totally agree Lorrie. I took turning 40 as a kick in the butt to finally write this blog!
