Plans for a Mid-Life Crisis

Today is my 35th birthday.

So far I've read cat food reviews, complained about my old lady hip that's acting up, wrote an article about fall, and managed someone else's social media, so it's already been jam-packed with middle-aged action.

I'm also carefully considering a mid-life crisis. Not sure what though. Something more exciting than reading cat food reviews, for sure (we are all natural and grain-free though, I think that's pretty exciting.) I've already done sky diving and tattoos. I'm scared of motorcycles and can't afford a sports car. World travel is high on the list but the logistics of that one are still fuzzy. I have the opportunity to become a  yoga instructor but I'd have to touch sweaty people and do lots of yoga--it would be a cool thing to say I did, but would I like doing it? I don't think I would ever like touching sweaty people, or even not sweaty people. But there is the Lululemon discount to consider.

I've also thought about getting another cat (a really old one whose owner died) but I don't know--I feel like I should save full-on crazy cat lady time for later. Like, my 3/4 life crisis.

I do think it's time to hire a pool boy.

And probably get a pool.

So there is lots of excitement and contemplation going on around here. While I wait for the bus to come.

Cheers to a fabulous year, Ashley! I'd start with a great bottle of wine (or something from Walgreens...I's wine...who cares) and let the rest shake out.

Also, y'all are grain free? Will you share more about that? So curious!

Happy Birthday!

(See, I'm already better about leaving comments...even though this one made me sign out of work email...grrr...or a sign that it's almost time to leave for the day).

Happy birthday! I buy good quality, grain free food for our little shit Axel. But I think I negate that by feeding him Cheetos, pop tarts, and nilla wafers on the sly! (Don't judge me by the contents of my people-food cabinet!)

Happy Birthday! Hope your day is fabulous. Enjoy and do whatever you damnwellplease! I'm still in my mid-life (54) crisis and loving every minute. Except for daughter's crazy cat, Callaway, who woke me up at 3 a.m. .... didn't enjoy that too much! I know your family will make your weekend extra special.

Happy Birthday!

One day when my husband and I were out biking 50 something miles I decided that this is indeed what I'm doing for my mid-life crisis.
