Happy UnBirthday to Me!

Today's my first full day of being forty.

Can't say that I feel any more aged, mature, decrepit, or engaging than yesterday.

But supposedly it's a big birthday. 33 was a big birthday for me, and I predict that 45 is going to be difficult, or feel like a milestone.

HT to Mrs. Plumeria for the cake picture.

Hey, welcome to the 40s. It's a nice enough decade.

I think 43 (this year) is going to be harder than 40.

Well - I'm not sure to say Happy Birthday or not *g*. FWIW - I didn't mind turning 30, 40 or 50. It was adding 7 after that got to me. I hated turning 37, 47 and well - I haven't hit 57 yet but I'm sure I'll hate it most of all.

Welcome to the club! I've just passed my first 6 months of 40-hood, and it's not that bad.

Happy Wednesday!

Happy Unbirthday Suisan!

Okay, why 33? Mine was 35 and now it seems every year after that ;)

Happy birthday.

I'm not sure *why* 33 was a big deal; it seemed OLD in a way that 32 didn't.

I think it's that I remember being in Elementary school and telling a friend that my mother was 33. And I remember being in college and making a banner for my mother's 50th birthday. That seemed like an "adult" age. Now it doesn't seem like such a big deal.

45 is going to be tough, I'm sorry to say, because that's the age my aunt was shen she died. As I get older I reach the end of her life, which is very odd.

Damn morbid thoughts. Avast!

Thanks for the birthday wishes, you guys.

Happy belated birthday, Suisan.

Ah yes. I remember feeling weird at 27 because my mother had me at that age. Since we can't have children it's always been a bit weird thinking about my current age and knowing my mother had two kids by now!

Happy Belated UnBirthday.

40 was fine it was 35 that sucked. I remember telling my brother this and he completely agreed. 35 was the year Mom announced I'd reached middle aged, half way to almost dead.
