Over The Hill???


Today I turned 40!  The big 4-0!  How depressing is that?  I feel old.  People call me ma'am and Mrs.  Aren't I still too young for that?  In the Halloween costumes this year they have an 80's party girl costume.  That was when I grew up.  Isn't it too soon for that to be a period costume?  I sure don't think I act 40.  I still feel young at heart most days.

I have heard some people say life only gets better with age.  Man, I hope they are right!  I need something to look forward to!  Right now I just feel tired and a little depressed.  Maybe tomorrow will be better! 

After all  ... Tomorrow is another day. laughing smileys

Happy Birthday Nancy !!

Old ... not !!

I'm 53 and not even looking back. Would not want to be in my 20's these days. Now I look for retirement in 15 years.

Happy Birthday! 40 is NOT old!
As far as the 80's, my daughter was born in 94 and when she was about 5-6 she would ask us how we did things back in the 80's like it was 100's of years ago! The 80's are back in style!
I hope you have a better day tomorrow!

Guess I missed your birthday yesterday..wish I was 40 again..good times..almost 60 now..you're only as old as you feel and act...I've met some old people in their 80s who seemed very young and some young people who were acted very old so its all on how you look at it.....attitude is everything!
