I'm 35. It just happened at the beginning of the month and I'm happy to report that I'm okay with turning semi-middle aged. I wasn't too happy on the day of my birthday, but I've reconciled myself with the fact that aging is a good thing - we all have to do it. Plus, as a result of celebrating my birthday I received some lovely gifts:
Oh, and did I mention how turning 35 means that I only have 5 years left to complete my 40 before 40 list. Yikes! Talk about feeling under pressure, especially since my list isn't even completed. Yep, its true - I have not finished writing the list. I know! Its crazy! All I do is talk about a bloody list that needs to be written - ugh! And, to top things off, I mentioned the "40 before 40 list" idea to my friend Kris and he has really embraced it. He has a web page for his list and he's already crossed items off of his list - a list he has only started working on since the beginning of the year!! Cripes, I feel like a jealous slacker! Oh well, I've just got to get to work on my list (which I plan to write this weekend) and start crossing things off it ASAP. I have five years to complete the list and I plan on crossing off the last item on my list in five years time. Wish me luck!!
Anyhow, I just wanted to share a bit of what's going on with me. And, now I'm off to continue reading Human Remains by Elizabeth Haynes. I swear that title makes me cringe just thinking about it - yikes!
