So, I will be 39 in about 6 months. I cannot believe that it has been over 20 years since I was in high school and since I started college. Being that I only have a year and a half left before I am officially “over-the-hill” I have some things in my life I hope to get in order before then.
First of all, I want to be sure that I am in the best shape of my life. I have been slacking on P90X for a few months. I really don’t have the time, I know, a common excuse, but fortunately, they are coming out with a P90X that is the same results in only 30 minutes! Perfect for me because I detest exercise, but I really enjoy the results. So , starting, right along with a million other 1/2 serious people, I’m going to get back to working out regularly again both for vanity and for my health – I feel better when I work out regularly, i look better, and I manage my stress better which means I’m a lot happier too.
Secondly, finishing my massive remodel on my house by the time I’m 40 is important. It’s consumed so much of my life, even though it’s a labor of love and I really enjoy it (being an architect and designer helps), it’s still taking up a lot of my time, adds on a lot of stress and costs a LOT of money. But once it’s done I’ll be much happier and have a house I designed pretty much from top to bottom and will be GREAT for big parties! You’re all invited! 🙂
Lastly, having a kid. Since I’m gay, it’s not like my husband and I are just going to magically get pregnant, not that that’s even possible anyway. So we have to really plan ahead, which is good because it means we will be prepared and ready to be parents, whereas a lot of heterosexuals aren’t. So 2014 will begin the process of adoption or surrogacy so by the time I’m 40 I’ll have a kid. Yay. Beyond that, I just want to be happy, have a good circle of close friends that understand me and I them, and remain close with my mother and my husband and friends and continue to have a good career and good health. I hope the other side of the hill isn’t all bad, I feel like it’ll be great. But I have 18 months to find out. I’ll let you know how it goes.
