I will be 41 one week from today. Let’s look back at 40.
Well, I left my job of 10.5 years just before I turned 40, what, 2 weeks before I guess. So, all in all, that didn’t start well. I didn’t find another job for 9 months. Wow.
In looking back, leaving was the best decision that I ever made. It is nice working somewhere where you are actually appreciated.
I moved from my home town while I was 40. Forty years in pretty much the same place, seems like a long time. Nothing against St. Catharines, it is and always will be my home town, but I don’t really miss you all that much. Awful summer humidity is the main reason – I really hate the hot and humid weather. Of course, as I have mentioned, we don’t get much humidity in Calgary and when we do, it isn’t the intense crap that they suffer through in Southern Ontario. I am loving Calgary and hope to be here for years to come. I guess I will see what the winter will bring, it’s only a few months off now. Well, I can always throw on more clothing, but, for some reason, when I walk around naked, people complain. Actually, I can’t say that I blame them.
My Jeep also died while I was 40 – still dead actually. I am hoping to get it fixed soon. I am still fighting with Chrysler on it, hope to win that battle.
That brings me pretty well up to date. So, looking back, 40 had its highs and lows. I am sure that 41 will be a much better year. Here’s to another 40 !!! 🙂
