Well, I'm 50 now...

On Thursday April 24, 2008 I turned 50. I actually think it's pretty cool being 50. I just don't know how it happened so fast! I got my AARP packet in the mail a couple of weeks ago....that was a surreal experience.

So anyway....being feels like one of those times in life when you pass through a doorway. It's a one way door. There's no going back, only forward. It's exciting and scary at the same time. That's how this feels. I don't know exactly what the next leg of this journey will hold for me. The last 50 years have been quite a ride! If that's any indication of what the next few years are going to be like I think I'll fasten my seatbelt and hold on! Or maybe just hold my arms up in the air and scream....instructions from Lil Miss Autumn on the proper way to ride a rollercoaster...."You just hold your arms up in the air and scream when it's a little bit scary Grandma"

Congrats on your 50th birthday. I was reading your blog and saw that you had passed this milestone, and wanted to give you kudos.

We don't "talk" and you don't know me (I'm CroweKitty), but I think that 50 is a beautiful age, and something to look forward to (it's the new 30, right!). I'm 46 this year and in a happier place than I've ever been. It sounds like the same for you.

PS - I'm signing anonymous because I have too many passwords, etc to it's not worth getting another one :)

Hi Crowekitty..I think maybe I have "talked" to you before on Jimmy's forim...right? Anyway, thanks so much for the birthday congratulations! This truly does feel like a milestone to me.

No worries about the "anonymous" log on. I inderstand completely. I just hate the ones that use the anonymous log in and then want to argue. I have a problem debating with an unknown commenter! Thanks again for reading my blog!
