Milestones, since I am coming up on my 34th birthday on Saturday, I have been thinking about milestones. There is this new show "The Big 4-0" about big parties for people 40th birthday. I think that's pretty neat, I'm not dreading turning 40, I wouldn't mind whooping it up when I do. I will have to say that turning 30 was very hard for me. I had grand dreams of what I should be when I grow up and I figured 30 was the age that many things should of been accomplished by. I hadn't finished college, I had a crappy job, no kids of my own, and no big house in the suburbs. Now, I still have the crappy job, though it pays well enough. I still haven't finished college, and I do struggle a bit with that, since I probably could have a better job, and I am only about 40 credits short. I have Peanut Butter. I realized, I don't necessarily want that house in the suburbs. I like living in the city, I like being able to walk places. I wish our house didn't need as much done to it as it does, but they are things that can be fixed, I wish the housing market wasn't crap because we can't even think about selling. But I have realized, that for the most part I'm pretty happy and the material things I want, are just that material. Yes, I'd probably be a little happier not dealing with convicted felons on a daily basis, so I check out the job listings every couple days and maybe something will come up. Yes, I'd like to have another child, but daycare would kill us, so I'll just have to spoil PB, but not in the spoiled brat sense, she won't get everything. I'm hoping the changes I have made and are making in my life will allow me to live for a very long time and enjoy many milestones.
Are there milestones you are dreading? Have you passed ones you were dreading? Are there any you are looking forward too?
