The Big 4-0

Over the last year many of my friends and myself have turned 40. Sigh. I suppose there's only one way to go but it kind of sent me into a funk. I mean, what have I done with my life? What should I start doing? Skydiving? Quit my job? Buy a convertible? Don't laugh - all those things actually ran through my head. I didn't do any of those things, instead I joined a gym to get healthier and to make sure my next 40 years are even better than the first 40. I'm still waiting for my baby fat/skin/lower abdominals/whatever you want to call them to go away. So far, no luck. *another sigh* I'm going to keep working at it but I'm going with the excuse that I had a c-section so those muscles just won't shrink back. If that's not the case, please don't tell me I'm wrong. I'll happily live in denial.

Enough blathering, how about a card. Here is one I sent to my girlfriend, Amanda. She's a September birthday like me. I made the outside of the card all black and dreary...

...but the inside all fun and festive. No use in crying over being 40 - we need to celebrate it!
