Some of the Flickr chicks and I got out on Sunday and went to the gardens for a girls-only photowalk. FUN!! I wish it hadn’t been quite so cold… we would have liked to walk around the sculpture park outside. And there was a kind of annoying wedding party that took over the conservatory and wouldn’t let anyone walk around and ruin their photos. Oy. I consoled myself with the thought that if I were the photographer I’d have done the same thing… or tried to pick spots where people couldn’t walk behind the wedding party and ruin the photo. I like to think it would be more of the latter. I’m generally a non-intrusive type.
So I’m turning four decades today and I’m happy to say that Life is good right now. Yeah, the economy sucks big-time and God only knows what’s going to happen with the auto industry (and as my Mom would say, He’s probably just guessing!) but The Man and I are doing good. Not spectacular, and not bad at all, just good. Paying the bills, enjoying life in our spare time, working out on a semi-regular basis, and generally making the most of a relatively humble existence.
Life isn’t easy — it’s never easy — but it’s not bad!
I’ve taken a look around this week – taken stock of my existence – and I have to say that 40 isn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. In fact, it’s not bad at all!
