A look at age, through the ages!

So this year ( 4/15 ) I am saying so long to the 40's .... Usually I don't like going on about my Birthday, but this year I am because it's a big one!

When you hear "Wow, Time Flies" there are two reactions .... younger people say " That's what old people say " ... older folks say " One day those kids will understand "  Well I'm saying I understand aging, but how the HECK did I get to almost 50!

There are some days I feel 70 lol but usually I think I feel younger ... maybe that's a blessing - so I wont complain. However this year maybe I'm just over thinking the part about becoming 50 next year and this being my last 40's b-day.

Does 49 sound so much better then 50 ? Isn't 50 the new 20 ? lol although Nancy Reamy doesn't agree ... she said maybe the new 35 lol

 

I thought I'd include some famous age quotes to soften the blow ...

I understand aging, but how the HECK did I get to almost 50! ~ Shawn Michaels

Well I guess I'll have to blog about my Birthday next year since it's the BIG 5 - 0 .... then I won't write again about it til I'm 70 ..... Shawn
