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?

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.

Rim2Rim Directors Reply

This was my first email to her that I wrote Sunday evening.

This was her reply first thing on Monday morning.

Whaaaaat? Did she even READ my email? She just babbled and didn't even know what she was saying. It DIDN'T happen to be all males since I have a picture. It was 2 women and 3 males.

So, she reread (I assume) my email again and sent this reply. I never replied back to her because of it.

Should I still be annoyed that she does not even know what is in her race entry form? What she THINKS is there and what IS there is 2 different things. I mean, if I was the top man and woman on the half race, and I didn't get my $50, I would still be annoyed and raising a stink. But no. They didn't get anything and they are not speaking up?!? Why am I kinda annoyed about this whole thing?
