It looks like Flash was right when he asked me if I am going through a midlife crisis.
I answered the questions in this quiz, and apparently I have a lot (although not all) of the symptoms.
My 40th birthday is next week. While I'm not flipping out about turning 40, neither am I happy about it.
On the one hand, I realize that I am enormously blessed and I am so grateful for the love of my children, my family, and my friends.
On the other hand, I feel bored and restless and weighed down by my responsibilities, and I can't seem to find a practical outlet for my boredom (hence the blog, maybe?)
On the one hand, I recognize that I am lucky to have the material possessions that I have, and that I am able to work in a career that I enjoy.
On the other hand, supporting myself and 3 children on a teacher's salary is nearly impossible, and I am constantly submerged in financial worries.
On the one hand, I am healthy even though I don't take care of myself properly.
On the other hand, I am overweight and my once-beautiful hair is looking all funky and middle-aged.
On the one hand, raising my beautiful children gives my life purpose and meaning and joy.
On the other hand, sometimes I wish that I could be free to do as I please without having to put the needs of others first.
On the one hand-
Oh, man. To paraphrase Tevye, how many freakin' hands do I have anyway?
Somebody please tell me that I'm not crazy, and that there are other people who feel this way too.
