I mean it's October already - which is typically my favorite month. I say typically because on the 15th, I turn 40 ... and all I can say about that is "Aack!" I'm a writer and I should have something more profound to say than an utterance that is more of a sound than a word. "Aaack!"
And I should be celebrating this milestone like that girl who did good deeds for her birthday and then posted her list all over the internet. I started to be inspired by her list until I read that she was going to put away all the carts at Wal-Mart.
So, anyway, time to write a new post here. Wait. All that up there looks like it could work. Maybe I'll go with it. Or maybe, I come back here and edit the whole thing. (I did come back - look below.) I mean, Wal Mart? Washer/Dryers? What has happened to me? And why is there an apple on my head? Oh yeah, that was my son's idea ... and honestly, there was no drinking involved!
Hello, again. So, yes, here I am the next day to do a little editing and to add one more important thing. And that is, despite the "aack", I do - really do - like being my age and the age I'm about to become (cough- 40). I like it because I'm able to do all the things I love - be a mom, be a writer, volunteer in my children's classrooms, bake, garden, watch Bravo TV while the kids are at school, pretend I'm a trophy wife ... okay I've taken it a smidge too far, but you get the point. And yes, it's not a perfect life. Of course there's always something I wish I could have that we can't afford or somewhere I'd to like travel if we had more freedom. But, I wouldn't trade my smile lines or the few extra pounds around my waist to go back to my younger self. Instead, I welcome the next decade. I'm excited to watch my children grow, build my writing career and, most of all, enjoy the life I have now.
