Mid-life skateboard

I hit forty next year, and I haven't been out looking at the latest BMW or hitting on the waitress at Applebees. I have, however, been looking on Craigslist for a used skateboard.

I'm pro-midlife crisis. The mid-life crisis is a kick in the pants, a reassessment of values and habits, a panic button that screeches, "WAKE UP!" I'm excited about this coming decade. I've developed more discipline, and finish more things that I start. I've learned that quantity time is more important to Silvi than quality time, as quality time is an offspring of quantity time. I'm able to let more slide off my back. I don't take it quite as personal when a client says that they hate my selection of music or graphics. It still stings, but I usually don't take it home with me.

And I'm learning that I'm not in charge, but God is, and that this is a good thing.

Three months from now our son will join us. I can't wait to teach him how to skateboard.
