I’m not over the hill…but I can see the hill and it’s not too far in the distance.  Getting a little bit older isn’t a complete and total downer.  I’m more comfortable in my own skin in my forties than I was in my twenties.  Okay, so that skin is a little saggy in places and I don’t love that part of aging, but overall, life in the fortyzone is definitely not all doom and gloom.

Here’s a fun look at some of the not-so-fun things that happen to women as they age.  I could make comments about fine wine and shit, but it’s hard to compare fine wine to chin hairs and peeing when you sneeze.
