Update

So, I have not been posting.

No really good reason, just life is busy and I am stressed. I write the posts in my head, they just never make it further.  

Tomorrow is my 40th birthday.  It isn’t an easy one.  I remember back when I turned 25, a co-worker (who was in her 30’s) stated that she had a mental breakdown at that age.  This was the day before my 25th birthday.  She had struggled with her expectations of what her life would be like at that age and the reality.   That was not an issue for my 25th or 30th.  But apparently it is this time.  I have been struggling with this for a few months,off and on. Hopefully it gets easier after the big day.

I don’t have huge celebrations planned- a lunch tomorrow with some co-workers (and my boss told me that I didn’t need to rush back afterwards- which would be great, but I have stuff to doooo) then dinner out with my husband (venue yet to be determined).  A big family dinner on Saturday- my siblings are coming to town for that. 

I am going try to write more, but we shall see.

  1. As someone who freaked out about 40, I can say that the anticipation was worse (for me) than the day after. So sending a lot of good thoughts that it goes the same way for you. Happy birthday!

  2. Sorry to hear that you are having some difficulty with this birthday. Hope that you are feeling a bit better a few days out. I’ll be turning 40 this year, too. Not entirely sure how I feel about it. Turning 25 was not a big deal for me. I think I was in denial about turning 30 and that it bothered me more than what I wanted to believe. The anticipation of turning 35 was rough, but the actual day was not too bad. I think we all have our own person tough birthdays. Sending birthday wishes and thoughts for a lovely year.
