Later, 40.


One year ago today, I turned 40 with a good attitude. I’m a glass half full girl middle-aged woman. I walk on the sunny side of the street (figuratively and literally).

But despite some bright spots, this year turned out to be pretty damn grim. I’m very happy to put it behind me today.

So 40: goodbye, good riddance, and don’t let the door hit you on your way out. Go bother someone else.

And 41: The bar for this decade has been set low. Let’s try to do better.

  1. Happy Birthday Katie After all these years for some reason I always remember that the 19th is your birthday…other things I don’t always remember as well.

    I agree re leaving 40 behind…here is to many brighter days…your little (actually not so little any more)
    boy is adorable…love those boys.

    • That’s so nice of you to remember. I still have the present that you gave me for my 21st – twenty years ago! Time flies. 🙂

      Thanks for your thoughts. Brighter days for sure.

  2. The 40s had some good stuff but over all some big challenges. Almost 4 years into my 50s I am saying this decade is much better. So enjoy the good days of the decade you are in but … go ahead with the long view in mind.
