4 Decades

Sunday I turned 40.  It was such a weird day...we woke up in Gaylord, Michigan on our way home from vacation.  We made a couple of stops on the way home one to pick up some groceries for dinner.  I decided to get a beef tenderloin.  Kyle trimmed it all up and made excellent steaks for us.

I got my birthday calls from my parents each bringing its own level of bad news.  Mom is losing her job.  She was very upset about it and talked along time about why it upsets her.  Dad called earlier and he found out is kidney is failing.  That he will need the one my aunt gave him 37 years ago replaced.  He is supposed to have his children tested, I told him to let me know when to get this checked out.

I'm not sure I like this 40 business,  I've been brooding all week.  I need to shake out of it...


  1. It's true what they say. Getting older is not for sissies! Having said that, I now look back on my 40s as my youth!!

  2. I'm sorry to hear your parents' sad news, and so sorry that you got that news as such a lovely birthday gift. :( But you are still young!!! And you have lots and lots of years to play on this earth with your husband. :) I want to see some pictures from this last round of fun! And if you need more cheering than that, I'll take you to some public place and let you play with a whoopee cushion. :)
