Turning 40: Two month countdown

How does it feel, you ask?  So far, so good.  Honestly, it’s been a long uphill climb to get to this point, so quite frankly, I’m ecstatic.  Yea!!  I’ve made it this far, who’s to say what lies ahead.

I mean… what’s a few more gray hairs, a couple more winkles in the armor, and an upcoming colonoscopy as a result of another ulcerative colitis flair-up.  Heck, I should just schedule the damn thing on my birthday.

But, seriously.  I’m cool.  Yeah.  I’m not going to be the old, lame parent, I’ll be the mature and experienced parent.

No struggling here, people.  Just me and ABBA hanging out and getting ready to dance like a freakin’ queen!  THE queen.  The queen of 40.  The queen of cool.  Oh, and yes, I just looked up “cool” in the Urban Dictionary and found that it never goes out of style, so I’m all good.

  • Glad to see you are coming to terms with your metamorphosis into 40. While I may only be just over the first hurdle of 30 I do feel like the wisdom that comes with age really helps us all say “It’s okay. I am good with this version of me.” Enjoy your colonoscopy 😉 I may get to experience one soon myself (ACK) so you will have to give me the down-and-dirty version of how best to prepare yourself.

    Well… you’ll starve for a day, spend numerous hours in the bathroom, wake up starving, get poked and prodded, expel a little gas, be offered a drink (DO NOT take the orange juice – speaking from experience, you may throw up), then you’ll go home feeling like you just visited the bad side of town, got knocked out, and can’t quite remember what happened. Either that, or you’ll convince yourself you were abducted by an alien craft where unspeakable acts were committed.
