I know some of you only come here for decorating inspiration and if so you may not want to read any further. My blog has never really been just about decorating...I've tried to add a little more personal touch to it but I know this drives some people crazy! Please don't leave me grumpy comments about what I should or shouldn't blog about...
Thank you all so much for the feedback on possibly selling my hutch. I never expected that kind of response! I'm amazed at how insightful some of you are. Many of you noticed that I seem to be changing a lot lately so I want to explain what happens to me every ten years...I panic when I'm about to turn into the next decade of my life. It started when I turned 30...I felt like I was getting old so I went bungee jumping!
Before I was about to turn 40 I lost a lot of weight and felt good about myself but I woke up that morning crying. That sounds so foolish now...40 seems so young to me now that I'm about to turn THE BIG 5-0!
So now that I'm about to turn 50 next month (which I can't believe) I see myself going through much of the same feelings. I've lost weight (25 lbs so far), cut my hair, went blonder, joined online dating sites and I know it all has to do with that stupid number! I don't look at this as something negative though...quite the opposite. It feels good to reinvent myself a little bit once in awhile! I actually feel so much better than I did a couple months ago which is a great thing...especially when you are about to turn 50!
The dating thing has been very interesting. I'm just enjoying the process this time. I've met some nice guys... five in person so far. Of those five, there was only one that I really wanted to see again. (it's the guy on the white horse for those of you who follow me on Facebook). As we were leaving the place where we met, he told me he would love to see me again which made me very happy. We exchanged a couple emails before he left on a business trip. Then I NEVER HEARD FROM HIM AGAIN! ha...men! I'll never understand them! I can tell he's been on the online dating site so I know he's okay. Oh well....on to the next!
So bear with me as I turn 50 and don't be surprised if you see me jumping out of an airplane (with a parachute of course)!
