"The best is yet to come"

First the latest bits of news with me, and then the actual BLOG will begin:
1) I'm not moving. At least not until after '09 is over. So I'm sticking it out in the lake house. Which is something I actually feel totally okay (and, dare I say it, even happy) about.
2) Weight loss is at a stand still, but my body is going through an adjustment phase right now, so I'm okay with it. I'm making healthier decisions and that's what counts!
3) 49 days until my vacation.

Okay - now that that's done...

This weekend I hung out with some friends from high school (Gerber Baby's Mom and Gerber Baby's Dad). That got us talking about our high school years. Gerber Baby's Dad was considered a real catch in high school. Okay - so he was considered very good looking, but didn't have a "filter", so speaking wasn't always his strong point. But he was a generally funny guy who was good looking - and knew it.

It got me thinking about those people who say, "That was the best time of my life." As I approach my 30's though, I find my view on life is a bit longer sighted.

K-8? Definately NOT the best days of my life.
High School? Not bad, but definately not my peak.
Early 20's? Definately not bad, but I don't think I'd really hit my stride yet.
Mid 20's? Gained a TON of much needed flexibility, understanding, and confidence!
Late 20's? Definately finding my stride now, and looking better than ever. :)

But I believe the best is yet to come. ;)

Good women are like a fine wine - we only get better with age.


  1. It's probably a good thing that you aren't moving sooner. I know you were sort of excited about it, but also on the fence about leaving the lake house. Besides, 2010 is going to be here before we know it!

  2. I have found that my late 30s, early 40s are more fun. I spent my early 30s figuring out what I wanted to do with my life, my mid/late 30s getting out a mental rut.

    I agree with that women/fine wine statement. You stop wanting the bad boy and start looking for a nice guy. I have a chance. LOL

  3. I'm loving getting older. 29 so far has been incredible :)
