Egad — could it be only three months until I hit the big 4-0? (And did I just say “egad”?) As much as I said I knew the clock was ticking when I wrote my original "14 things to do before I’m 40" list, no one told me that life moves at warp speed in your last year of being a thirtysomething. But it’s true. Once I realized that I’m in my final trimester, I figured I better check in to see how I’m doing.
Since I don’t have this list taped to my wall or anything, I was sure I’d come on here and discover I was failing miserably, but this isn’t as bad as I thought! I also should mention that I found myself a new pair of glasses, which should have been on this list. I wear contacts and only wear glasses in the mornings and evenings at home. Then last month, one of the arms suddenly broke off. I was going to fix the glasses, but realized that I’ve had them since (gulp) university. Yes, that’s about 20 years. I always have trouble finding a pair a like, so I just don’t bother. This time, a friend came along and helped me find a pair to bring me into the current century. Hopefully they will last another 20!
Do you have a life bucket list? I’d love to hear what’s on it.
