"Forty is the old age of youth, fifty is the youth of old age."
Did you know that turning 40 means that you are older than 58% of America and have a 51% of being happy? I found that out doing a search on the internet! I turned 40 today!! Do I feel different? No. Not yet. I am wondering if I will. I haven't felt "youthful" for quite some time. I do feel young in my spirit, though. Age-wise, numerically, well, I feel like I am getting older. My children remind me of this often with their comments. I do feel like I AM part of that 51% that are happy, though. I have been happy for some time now. That is the good thing about getting older. I am finding much more peace and contentment and joy. If that comes with age then bring it on :-)!!
I wanted to congratulate Linda from Footprints in the Sand for being the first correct guesser for "Up Close With Val" a few days ago! The picture was a ONE WAY sign! Good job, Linda!! Here is your blue ribbon:
The Travelling Jeannette also guessed the picture correctly! Way to go, Jeannette!
I have been hurting terribly because of the weather change. My muscles have been spasming and throbbing. It is my fibromyalgia. It is driving me nuts. If anyone has any hints or tips on what they do for sore, achey muscles I would appreciate it! Anything other than the usual hot baths or heating pads.
Baby has now gained a pound and is 16 pounds! I hope you all don't mind me talking about my kitty again?!! I really think he thinks he is a dog!! He plays fetch alot now and he likes to drink out of the toilet bowl. He jumps all over you, eats absolutely anothing and he comes when you whistle. He even lies on the floor like a dog!
Well, I am off to enjoy my birthday :-)!! Toodles! xox
