I think I might be having a mid life crisis. I’ll be 40 on my next birthday. Isn’t that when things like this start to crop up? Ever since we returned from vacation, I have an overwhelming desire to sell most of my possessions, including the house I am sitting in right now, and travel the country in an Airstream trailer.

I know it sounds crazy, and I won’t even consider it now because I wouldn’t take my daughter out of school to become a vagabond, but it will only be 11 years until she is done with high school. That seems like plenty of time to get this plan together!

Jim is still in the eye rolling stage at the moment, but if he can give up satellite TV, he can surely give up a primary residence, right? He loves to see new things as much as I do, and I’m sure I can convince him to hit the road.

I’m hoping by sharing this with the world I will either see how ridiculous it sounds and move on, or it will make me start planning. All of you who have taken a psychology class in your lives, please weigh in and tell me if I am truly having a crisis or if this is a viable plan?

Happy Birthday to Me!

how much is emergency room eye– Sorry, they don’t sell eyes at the ER or anywhere else that I know of.

I’m having fake bake tan but have had botox– I’m sure you look lovely.

so this is it now it’s colder can’t take my eyes off you- Sounds like a Neil Diamond song.
