Over two weeks.
It was brought to my attention by a friend who emailed and asked if I was in a blogging malaise again.
Yes. I guess I have been.
Truthfully, it was more of a "OH MY GOD I'M TURNING 40 THIS MONTH!!!" malaise.
I know it is just a number and that you are only as young as you feel.
I still felt overwhelmed though. In fact, the day before my birthday I had a bit of a cry while driving down the street. I pulled over, called Yvan and blubbered about how I was getting old, blah, blah, blah....
Then the day came and what do you know? I didn't feel one bit different. Hee!
Turning 25 was also a number I remember not liking. A quarter of a century just seemed to keep rolling through my mind and I didn't like it one bit.
And now, well...I'm 40.
Honestly, it feels like 25 was yesterday. I'm not sure how the last 15 years have gone by so fast but they have.
The last year has been a whirlwind. Ade has now been home 10 months today! It feels like we just got off the plane yesterday and walked out into the crowd waiting to greet us.
Having a child does not slow time down. Nope. Not one bit.
If anything time seems to be tick, tick, ticking by at an incredible pace.
When we get up in the morning it as if someone has said "3, 2, 1, GO!!!!!" and off we run trying to get as much into each day as possible. I look back at the weeks and wonder what we actually do and can't remember.
I can only imagine how fast the next 20 years are going to fly by as we watch Ade grow up.
Yikes! And in 20 years I will be 60!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
O.k. I better stop while I am ahead!
So, I'm 40! No big deal.
It's just a number and you're only as young as you feel.
I still feel 25.
Instead of being depressed by turning 40 I decided to embrace it and signed myself up to to do the Sinister 7.
Since doing the Bridge City Beat Down I now know I can do anything I put my mind too.
