Ending my 41st trip around the sun isn’t so bad. Last year on this date I entered my fortieth year with a pretty good attitude. Forty-one certainly can’t be any worse than Forty!
The following three people were all born in 1973 (like me) and they look fabulous. I decided as long as they’re looking good and rocking their forties – so will I.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – November 1, 1973. Miss World, Bollywood Actress, Gorgeous
Andrew Lincoln – September 14, 1973. Actor. I want to meet him and ask him to say, “Caaaarl.” I would like that.
Heidi Klum – June 1, 1973. Model, Project Runway Host, Businesswoman
For whatever reason, knowing Ash, Andy, Heidi and I are all the same age makes me feel great. And that’s enough for me. I’m easy like that.
My bucket list included:
Learning to Sew – DONE!
Getting First Aid Training and Certification – DONE!
Learning How to Shoot a Gun – Still pending 😦 (I have the money set aside, I just haven’t gotten around to it – yet. Dang it.)
Disney Cruise (OK, this is for the kids, but I want it too)
Water Painting/Pen and Ink Classes (My all time favorite medium to work in, it’s been almost 25 years, but I’m ready to pick it up again.)
Attend the Opera (I’ve never been, but I desperately want to go – if I can find someone to go with me, or even better, take me.)
The End. 🙂
PS – Everyone knows it’s not about what number you are, it’s all about what number you look like… 😉
Will I make it to the end of the bucket list? Follow me on bloglovin’ and find out.

I cracked up about the Disney cruise! I know several single adults who all want to go on one. Maybe they should form a group!
Huh. That’s a great idea. And, on a positive note, maybe I could meet a single man there, preferably in his forties who would take me to the Opera… 😉
1. You look great.
2. I sort of love that you share a birthday with Springsteen AND Julio Iglesias. What could this mean.
3. I swoon over Ash too!
4. Is there a Disney opera you could attend?
5. Have a great birthday!

heh heh – I also share my bday with 4 awesome friends and Fall. It’s a Big day. 🙂 Hmmmm, Disney Opera – good thinking – kill two birds with one stone… XO
Those Disney cruises look completely awesome… I so want to take our kids on one sometime!
I’ve never been to an opera either, I would love to go with you, if that man doesn’t show up or doesn’t want to go with you;)
Sweet. Done deal!
My wife recommends “Barber of Seville” for the opera. It’s very accessible. I would move learning to shoot put the priority list. Very important skill for a single woman and even more so for a single mom. As a firearms instructor, I have found most women are very good shots.
Thank you for the advice! I’m going to take it. I hope to move on the learning to shoot thing tomorrow… Hopefully.
Good for you! We saw Handel’s “Julius Caesar” when we were in Paris, it was great, but a little on the heavy side. The Barber of Seville is really a lot of fun. Carmen is another good one if it’s not politicized. They did Carmen at the Santa Fe Opera this year and my boss said they politicized it around the whole border issue and pretty much ruined it. You will get a kick out of shooting, both literally and figuratively speaking 😉
[…] my birthday as a springboard to inspire my writing (like my past two posts, In Days Before- and 29 Forever. Not Hardly.) -well, that’s something I can feel good about. That’s something even I can […]
Your bucket list sounds interesting. I have heard that gun ranges are pricy….
