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 had one friend die of Pancreatic cancer this past year. It hit him hard and sadly fast. I had another friend in November pass due to complications with pneumonia and his diabetes.

He wanted me to bike 6 MORE miles with him as he went to do an errand. Uh. No. I was done and wanted off the bike. I wasn't dead tired, but I was a little saddle sore and wanted off the saddle.

At Lucky Peak
I'm 30-something. Not 40-something. I felt 6 more miles would have defeated the point. And I'm lazy.

Plus I had to get ready to #nom my birthday treats! Way more important then adding more miles :-)

Sushi at Sushi Joy and DQ afterwards.

I love those Georgia Mud Fudge Blizzards so hard.

How was your Friday? Doing anything fun this weekend?
Anything special for Mother's Day? Fave DQ Blizzard?


  1. What a fun idea! Great job! I would say that you probably deserve the treat ;)

    1. Thank you. I think I deserved it a little too much a little too often ;-)

  2. Happy Birthday and Yay for the miles. My birthday was May 9th and I turned 36 too ;)
