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.

Blogger Holiday Gift Exchange

I like to participate in blogging gift exchanges. When A Healthy Mrs was putting a Christmas one together for this year, I had to jump in and join! I like to do these because I get to "meet" new bloggers and expand my bloggy circle.

Thank you Jackie and Michelle for the fun exchange!
