Reflections on turning 35

I am 35 today and I am not sure how I feel about it. I was the same way when I turned 30. It's something about the milestones, I suppose. Funny....I don't feel 35 and I have been told that I don't look 35 so I can not imagine why a number would bother me so much. Maybe it's all those warnings you hear on drug commercials...you know the ones that say "especially women over 35" or all the screenings that one should get once they hit 35, like thyroid, breast cancer, or amnio tests if you become pregnant. Is there a self destruct button or something?

Ahhh, nevermind. What I do have to remember is that I am healthy, that I am happy, that I am the mother of two beautiful boys. I have a good life and more to come. Maybe I will check out the Red Hat Society (as a Pink Hatter)...those women know how to embrace their age and party!
