44 Years Old and 4 year Bloggerversary

It's been 4 years since I created my first post upon this blog. 4 years! Hell, I was blogging before blogging was a term that everyone knew the meaning of.

I was so depressed when I created my first entry. I was depressed because it was my 40th birthday. Instead of embracing the fact that I had reached 40 I was just plain old sad that I was becoming old.

Thankfully the day after 40 was much better and there hasn't been a birthday since that I have been depressed.

Still, 44 today. Wow.

Upon the conclusion of my 4 6 month check clinic appointments during the past week my fabulous Dr. told me that my body is 23 years old. I told her to tell that to my wrinkles and graying hair!

She gave me an eye roll and told me to be thankful. I am.

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes. I'm forcing my family to eat with me at Bucca.

How many posts in 4 years? I'm up to 168 already. Hard to believe the ever cheery Julie was once depressed at being 40 (and had never run far!)

And I love Buca. Good choice.
