Post 40

Well, here I am 40 + 3 days, and I'm surviving. No huge meltdowns, no disasters. Just day by day life as usual, for the most part. Except for the writers block. There's a lot going on, and I can't find a way to corral my thoughts and exercise some discipline and get things done. But what else is new, that's fairly standard for me, so can't blame my lack of focus on suddenly being 40, either.

Even though, you know, it's crap, one of the first things I do every birthday morning is grab the paper and read my if today is your birthday annual projection horoscope. Here was mine:

"Just as soon as you finish the unfinished business, new projects entice you. By the start of October you're on to exciting, fresh adventures. Your personal life sparkles in November. Open your big heart to the world and make room for the unexpected - you may get exactly what you wanted, and then some."

Hmmm. I'll take it.

Do you read your horoscope?

No, no horoscope for me. I'm lucky to read my fortune cookie paper! I like yours, though; it's very fresh and encouraging! I love thinking about fall, and fall always makes me want to do new things.

I used to right before I went to bed to see if it was right. I haven't done that in a very, very long time.

Happy belated! I'd be a snivelling mess, so I think you're doing remarkably well. Hope it was lovely.

Happy Birthday!

I used to but I have stopped. I don't seem to believe in anything anymore.

I'm not in to the whole horoscope thing but if it's around I'll take a peek for shits and giggles.
Happy Big 40, I hope like hell yours is a better year than mine was...I'm going to go out on a limb and say it will kick ass:)
