This blog started on a whim after buying an out-of-character pair of sassy green boots (my incredible second-hand find)! And it dawned on me: it’s the perfect time to have my mid-life crisis! I am a Mom to 2 boys. I was 16 when Big Guy was born, and Little Guy was born 16 years after that…Yes, I got to tackle diapers and driving lessons at the same time. Big Guy has moved out so I have half an “empty nest”. I “retired” for a few years to be a full-time homemaker and now I’m working as a part-time church
lady office administrator. I play and sing in 2 bands, I lead a program for women, and I teach stamping and card-making. While I still look okay…for my age…I’m not ready to “wear purple with a red hat” (I look stupid in hats). So I’ve decided… I am going to try new things (when I turned 40, I got a tattoo and ran in Mud Hero – it was mud-licious!) and I’m trying to get in shape (well, a shape other than round)…For 41, I shot my way through the Capture Your 365 challenge with my new camera, and at 42, I started learning Italian. Every day I’m learning to appreciate “the Opera of the Every Day”! I’ve wasted far too much of the first half of my life crying, so I am determined to laugh more (even if it means by myself or laughing at myself – I will never cease to be amused). I just turned 40 41… 40-something and I am choosing to embrace it!!! Who’s with me?
