Funny, I Don’t Feel 40

I turned forty yesterday.



It is weird. I don’t feel forty years old. I’m not even sure I feel thirty. Most of the time I feel 20, except for the fact that I suspect I am only weeks away from needing bifocals. I still think it is funny when I am allowed to be in charge of children. I pretend I am responsible and tell them not to stand on the couch and appropriate grown up speak, but honestly, I am just a kid with a car and a credit card.

I thought turning forty would bum me out more, but I am fine. I am happy. My life is good.

And I’m in my 40s.

Weird, huh?

    Happy 40! My mom always said she never thought of herself as really aging and then is shocked when she catches sight of some old lady in a reflection and realizes it’s her. 40 is weird for about a month and then you just get used to it. (That’s a lot of trips around the sun, though. Kind of cool.)

    wait until your kids are in college. You’ll feel old then.

    Happy Birthday! I never feel my age, either. I feel, at best, 12.

    I’m almost 47 and I feel about 14 most of the time. Awkwardly 14 (because how else does one do 14?). And I feel exactly the same way about being left in charge of children. My 7 year old is slightly more responsible.

    I know. I swear that I am still a young person, but it seems that I am not.

    Happy birthday, you fabulous forty year old!

  7. Give it time to sink in, especially to your joints and back.

    Happy Birthday, Sarah! I also turned 40 this week, and it has felt just fine. I kinda freaked out this week, though, when I realized my next birthday milestone would be 50. Because 50 is OLD.

    That’s right! Well, happy belated birthday and I cannot believe you are 40!!! 37 this year for me and I’m thinking it is the year I’ll be in the best shape of my life. I think this is an awesome point in our lives.
