What does August 4th and Monday mean?

It means that this is the downhill slide to
Saturday August 9th,
which is also my 40TH b'day!


I am not, not, not looking forward to it. Why you ask........let me break it down for you.

1. The idea of 40 or 40 something is not my idea of fun.

2. You will soon be in the category of having other medical things done and tested. It is when the word cholesterol, or mammogram become common words.

3. I am already noticing that you wake up each day with a different pain in your body.

4. Your kids all of a sudden think you are OLD. And Jaden thinks old means you die.

5. Gray hair (most of mine are from KIDS).

There are many more things that I could touch on, but I will save you the agony.

But all in all, I still feel young at heart, my younger friends (you know who you are) keep me up to date on all the "young" trends. And of course my kids keep me feeling like I have no choice other than to keep up. I still will crank up the radio on a good song. Ha.
Guess all in all, you truely are only as old as you feel, so I guess I am really only gonna be 25 (I wish).

I had said a few years ago that I wanted a convertible by the time I was 40, and that I wanted to be out of M'boro ( like out of the country) when I turned 40 but none of this is gonna happen. Maybe when I am 50. By then I will have a child that will be 27 and maybe grandkids, and Jaden will graduate high

Have a great week friends and family............... and I am going back into my shell. Ha.

I am going to remind you again that YOU DO NOT LOOK ANYWHERE CLOSE TO 40!!!! And I'm not the only person that thinks that!

Just remember that age is just a number. Thank God for every day you are given.

Someone once said that any day you wake up looking down at the grass is a "good day"--I agree.
