OK -- I have to be honest here ... I am struggling a bit.
Oh ... business is good. Bills are under control. Our health is great. And work is even getting done around the house ... though it may not be the work that we planned.
No ... this is the struggle.
Yep ... the number 60.
It gets listed on my driver's license as of Sunday. I turn 60.
When in the world did I get so old????
Last time I looked .... I was 21!!!
And this is what is getting to me ............ best case scenario, I'm 2/3 done.
Two-thirds of my life is over???? Really???
I've got sooooo much to do!!!! I am not even close to accomplishing everything I wanted to accomplish. Heck -- just getting through my yarn and fabric stash alone should keep me going for another 50 years!!!
Those dreams of my youth still haunt my memories.
I wanted to be the first female President of the United States .... and its sad to think, theoretically, it could still happen.
I wanted my house to be published in a magazine. Old farmhouses with living rooms with blue wallpaper with hearts probably won't make House Beautiful. (Cue the 1980's geese!)
I wanted to weigh what my driver's license says I weigh. Yea ... Not. So. Much.
So very much more I want to do .... and the question is, Will I?
Everyone says .... It is only a number. And it is.
But its a BIG number!
It seemed so old when I was 19.
It seemed so far away.
And now its here.
I guess I will just have to stay tuned to watch the end of the story.
I hope you will watch with me.
