48 and counting

Ok, technically, I am at the moment 47 and counting, but tomorrow is my birthday.  I don’t feel bad about turning 48, just puzzled – how did I get here?  Seems like just yesterday (some days anyway) that I was 18 and heading off to college.  Sigh.  Still, better to turn 48 than NOT.

Overall I don’t really think about my age.  It is just a number and I feel fine, so what’s the point in worrying about a number?  However, I am now seeing fellow high school classmates as grandparents – THAT makes me feel old some days.  I look at the grey and my hair and wonder how that happened.  LOL, then I remember I have two young children …

I hope that 48 is a good year for me.  I’m going to do my best to make it one of my best years yet!
