I don't feel 40 and that is just where I will be soon. I don't think I look 40. I have grey hairs, but not as much as most people. I am not very wrinkly. I am not sure what a 40 year old should look and act like.
So where am at in life at 40? I don't have kids. I have plenty of pets. I am a home body most days. I am knee deep in a "career." I have the husband and family. I tend to have my goofy moments. Other days I feel like I'm elderly.
When I turned 30 I got a tattoo (still my only one) and I quit my job because I realized how miserable I was doing it (customer service for cell phones). I don't foresee anything that dramatic, but if this nonsense with the nephew continues on I may move back to my house to get away from the lazy, mooching hipster.
Just for laughs I googled what "celebrities" turn 40 this year:
Dwayne Johnson "The Rock"
Amazingly I knew who most of these folks are. They are a diverse group. Some are cool and others I wouldn't want to share the big 40 with. I don't look a thing like them. Maybe if I had a trainer, plus makeup and hair fixing me up.
I tend to have no luck around birthdays. Bad things tend to go badly - mother forgot, breakup with boyfriend - you know, the usual.
I saw this and I guess this is uplifting...
