The year of the 40......

So I turn 40 this year. In August. So I can agonize over it for 7 months and 2 days, or I can look forward to it, plan a great way to celebrate, and be thankful that I made it after all of the stupid decisions and crazy things I have done in my life.

I choose the latter.


I'm gonna kick 40's ass. When I turned 30, I laid in the pool all week and drank beer and wailed about how "I had accomplished nothing!!!" Actually I had. I had a good job as a detective, helping kids and people from abusive situations, a family and friends that loved me, and a pretty good life.

So I have decided that this year I am going to celebrate me, good, bad and otherwise. I will deal with my dad having cancer, the trials and tribulations of marriage, my family, my friends, and my job....and have a great time and live each day out loud. So if I start to whine and cry, kick my ass a little bit for me , ok?

As I look around the internet and I see people like Lisa who's battling cancer and all of the other shit things going on in the world, what do I really have to bitch about??

I almost wrote this post as a gripe about possibly needing glasses, but then I thought "hey, it's a chance to have another cool outfit accessory!!"

YAY ME !!!
