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. I now have half an “empty nest”. I “retired” for a few years to be a full-time homemaker and now I’m working as the gatekeeper in a cubicle of purgatory (aka church office administrator). I am also a worship leader, coordinator for a women’s program, 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. 43 & 44 are kind of a blur…I know there were some cooking disasters and I became a gamer… And 45 started with a trip to the gun range and axe throwing! Now I’m on Instagram: sassygreenboots.
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-something and I am choosing to embrace it!!! Who’s with me?
