Aging and My Mid-Life Crisis

I can't believe that I am now 40. It sounds SO OLD. But I don't feel like I should be THAT old. Its depressing. I think I'm having a harder time accepting this then I did for when I turned 30.

It's scary. To be frank and a little macabre, you have to start planning for end of life stuff. There is a lot I have yet to do with my life. But to be planning old people stuff, its scary.

How much longer am I going to live? How can I do this the healthiest that I possibly can? Should I buy life insurance for my other half and I? How can I increase our retirement savings.

I did buy myself a little present of 2 pairs of Nike training shoes today. I had a $25 dollar gift card and I have been itching to use it for a while.

Did you get yourself something for the holidays? I got myself 2 pairs of shoes I should be getting in a week!
