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?

There was NO booze. My heart is broken. Don't tease me like that!

What was your workout today? Did it involve booze, berries, or running?


  1. Those berries look yummy!

    90 degrees is hot hot hot! Been the story of my life all summer. But just imagine how awesome 70, 60,40's will feel in a few months! :)

    1. The last few weeks have been miserable. Hovering around 100, give or take a few degrees, for the last few weeks. I am SO ready for fall weather!
