forty five

I’ll be forty five tomorrow … 45! It seems like such a high number. I never envisioned myself being this old. I had a clearer idea of what I thought my life would be like at 30. Beyond that, I never really thought about it. Having 2 kindergarteners at 45 was definitely not something I foresaw.

I don’t feel 40-something. I look at this photograph and see a chunkier version of the 20-something me. My hair has gotten more grey in parts. I keep thinking I should colour it but the thought of investing an hour of my time making small talk to a hairdresser more than once every 6-12 months just doesn’t excite me. I asked Mike to take this photo before going to get my hair cut. I’m half-smirking because Mike was trying to make me laugh. I hate and love it when he does that. I’m sporting my wash and wear look … my everyday, do nothing after I shower hair. I’ve always been lazy like that.

There’s more to me than greying, disheveled hair, of course, but I thought I’d let my boys tell you through this cute questionnaire I found on this awesome photo journal blog.
