I have one of those pesky “milestone” birthdays coming up. I’m not super excited about it either.

I guess I’ll be officially old now.

I haven’t been much in the mood to celebrate much, WhAt with dad passing this year. His death also sort of beings this birthday into sharper relief too, as I may be at the 2/3 point in my life. Or further.

And that’s not something that’s worth celebrating. Mourning perhaps.

And there’s been all these wonderful reminders. Like AARP sending me mail. Or my drivers license needing renewal. My doc asking about a colonoscopy. Wonderful shit like that.

I’ve decided not to go gracefully. I’ve already started dietary and training regimens at my gym. And I have a personal trainer with whom I’m working in order to shake things up a bit. I need to shock my body and work on losing some lbs.

I also did make the decision to go on a small vacation to mark the occasion. My original plan was to do it up big and go to Tahiti and Mo’orea. But that sort of got put on hold for the time being seeing as how I still have estate stuff to do and not tons of vacay time.

I’m still managing to go to Key West, however. Only for about 5 days, but at least it’s not here. And it’s tropical. And gay.

I need the break.

And to forget that I’m about to be past my shelf life.

    OMG!! so glad i was struggling and coming out 20 years before you!! we only had to deal with parents, family, and finding our way. we didnt have to deal with gym bods, perfect decor, latest tech, guy next door, social media……. just wonder who made all that so important…. im so glad to be out of touch with all that bullshit…
    I have just been given another reason to let go of the insecure men trying to hold on to the past. ouch! but i wish you well

    Oh, sweetie.
    I’m 57 now. My husband of ten years died last year when I was 56. It was a love like I never knew existed!

    I’m now with a man I fell in love with twelve years ago, and who has been a dear friend to me and my husband. He came out at 51 and is now almost 64. This is his very first serious gay relationship, after 20 years of marriage and 2 grown daughters.

    There *is* no shelf life. You are still marvelously fresh and delicious 🙂

    Don’t worry, CB. Lots of people fret about entering their thirties, but it isn’t so bad.
