If I'm having trouble believing that my 40th birthday is a mere five months away then I need only look at today's mail. The letter from Bay High School was addressed to "Parents of incoming freshmen."
Eek! A freshman in high school. I know for a fact I'm not old enough to have a child in high school. I couldn't be. Certainly I don't feel as if I'm turning 40 (she says carefully inspecting her neck for early signs of sagging skin).
So far, I'm cool with this age thing. Of course that could all change as September approaches. They say (though I'm not sure who "they" is) that with age comes wisdom. I'm counting on it, baby! That, and self-confidence and courage and all those other qualities in which I seem be deficient.
