2 Days ’til 40: 40 Favorite Posts from My 400 Days ’til 40 Journey

I must say that it was much easier to choose 40 photos than to choose 40 posts!  One of the fun things about this particular journey is that I allowed myself to write (or post photos) about whatever I felt on any particular day.  As a result, I have a wide array of followers who each connect in different ways to what I write – this has been amazing.  I imagine that in the future, as I become a bit more focused, I may have a less diverse group of readers, though I hope not!

Here is my top 40 list of posts, hopefully as eclectic as my readers are.  Some I chose because of the importance of the content, some because they make me laugh (yes, I realize that I have a weird sense of humor that others do not always appreciate) and some because I like the way the words flow.

6 Days ’til 40: Delicious Delicacies

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and my partner and I had a wonderful dinner in a nice restaurant, something we do not normally do because we are very budget conscious.  It was such a lovely experience and I am so glad we went out.  We had a delicious meal and the atmosphere was pleasant and there were no kids – we were in heaven.

Yet, as I looked around the restaurant, something saddened me.  I realized that many people, even on a special occasion like Valentine’s Day, struggle with whether to go for a diet dinner or a delicious delicacy.  Where is the balance in the equation?

8 Days ’til 40: Why Can’t I Win the Lottery??!!?? :(

IMG_1383

Yesterday I did not get something I wanted.  My initial gut-level reaction was to launch into a full-fledged pity party, complete with pouting and sulking.  WHY CAN’T I WIN THE LOTTERY???  SOMEONE has to win it, why is that someone ALWAYS someone else and never me???  (And no, it has nothing to do with the fact that I rarely buy tickets, because rarely is not never, it is just not often).  Recently I bought a lottery ticket and I was very disappointed that I did not win.  In fact, I may have even been a tad depressed that I did not win…..  I really, really, REALLY WANTED to win (note, a want is very different from a NEED).

We kids feared many things in those days – werewolves, dentists, North Koreans, Sunday School – but they all paled in comparison with Brussels sprouts.                ~ Dave Barry Read the rest of this entry »

42 Days ’til 40: Illusions of Control

IMG_6123

 

Almost every person I know has a weatherman story.  You know it, don’t you?  The story of the weatherman who could not predict a sunny day even when they were out in the hot sun getting dehydrated.  This is how myself and my colleagues have felt this week.  We had a prediction for snow.  We did not have a gentle prediction, we had a strong declaration from all the local news sources that there was going to be a “major snow event” in our city.  Over 100 snowplows were on standby, as was my entire staff and our families.
