I'll be 50 tomorrow! October 12! Yeah!

Dear All,

No, I am not ER'ing yet but I will turn 50 tomorrow. I feel remarkably happy about this. I am spiritually, physically, and emotionally, well, financially too, in a good place. I will take the day off from work to spoil my dogs with a really nice long walk in the morning and will bake doggie cookies for them in the afternoon.

Thank you ALL for your friendships on this Forum in this past year. I've joined Aug 2009 and have since learned so much about everything from SWR to how to fix my leaky, rusty faucet. I wish all who happens to read this post, a WONDERFUL day, whether you are in counting down mode, happily working, or ER'ing.

Congratulations on your birthday, in advance.

Personally, I found my 50's to be the best decade of my entire life. So, get ready for some terrific years which you may have ahead of you.

Happy Birthday! Wishing you many, many happy years ahead.

I turned 50 about a month ago, and like you, feel great about it. If my 50s are anything like the 40s, life will be good.

Happy Birthday! 50 is cool. I turned 50 a month ago. Still haven't discovered any limitations yet. In fact, I can some discounts in my country now that I am 50.
