40 is one of my favorite U2 songs.
But, I have always looked to the "other 40" with great angst
Kind of like that test that you know is coming - that you know you have to study for, but haven't yet...well that is how I have felt about 40.
Last nite while getting my gray hairs removed/camouflaged, I told my friend Donna that I was mourning the passing of my youth - or that my 40th birthday was this week. She said "Patti! Dont you know that 40 is the new 20!?! Girl, it's all in your head!!"
Oh I like this! So, I am about to turn 20 tomorrow. How cool! I can redo all that I screwed up whilst in my 20's - now in my 40's. I have actually already started. I am finishing my degree, I am working on my amazing physical transformation (diet), I am passionately pursuing adoption and/or fertility, I am renewing my relationship with my sister and brother. So perhaps this year I will send out Christmas cards with something neat to put in it like my friends send to me.
