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. (Going on a cruise a couple times a year is not helping with that savings.) At what age should I sign up for AARP?

The river is high and fast. This is the only time I wish the weather is 95+ so I can go float in it. 

After that I got into spring cleaning mode. Cleaned off all of our patio furniture, got 5 of our planters ready for planting something in them. My chives I planted a few years ago look healthy and happy. Our catnip is starting to get green. I should show a picture.

Now, off to Casanova for pizza. In a hurry to write this post. Fooding time.
