Life Catches Up to You

Sorry I've been so scarce. I seem to be saying that a lot lately. Life catches up to you sometimes and you just have to ride it out. With my 40th birthday looming on the (not so distant) horizon, I've gone through various thoughts and feelings since my 39th. As I've written in my profile, this year has been about making positive changes. Some I've made, some I haven't (yet!) and some I'm struggling to keep up with.

The big four-oh... Wow. Funny how you never quite imagine how hard something is going to hit you until you finally (nearly) get there. My 30th hit me really hard too (really hard) but a lot of good came out of my 30's, and I expect nothing less of my 40's!

I like the person I am, I like my life, and I intend to make my 40's about making positive changes for the future. The hubby and I plan on remodeling the house (we've decided to stay here, rather than move) and make it work for us and our lifestyle. I've decided to complete my BA degree, complete my novels, and pursue anything else that interests me. Since reaching this age, we've made the final decision that our feet are firmly planted in the "no kids" camp, so we are going to do all the things we've always wanted to do. We're living our lives for ourselves and each other and we feel really positive about it.

So, as forty approaches, I am trying to put it all in the proper perspective. Bear with me, it'll probably take me up until that big day to get there, but I will.

Scary Stuff, People!

Please watch this very short You Tube video:

Whether you're a Democrat or a Republican, you really need to think twice about who you're voting for!

To Kill a Mockingbird

We're having a discussion May 1-7, 2008 on Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird in the book club I moderate and it's off to a slow start! I know there's a lot of people out there who have been touched by this wonderful novel and I invite you all to stop by and join the discussion HERE.

I promise we won't bite. We are a very nice bunch! :)
