Hello 50!

You know what? Turns out, 50 doesn’t suck. I’ve been getting more smiles from men on the street in the past week. I think that’s because:

1. I’ve been in a good mood and all smiley myself.
2. The gym. My whole posture and carriage is different. Here is me in one of my new birthday shirts.


Tonight I’m going out to dinner with some friends, to celebrate my birthday and my friend Ruby’s birthday. I get to extend my birthday still one more day! Then I promise to stop talking about it and go on to other topics that might be of interest to people other than ME.

Like boxing. I took a boxing class, and I have to say I loved it. If anyone can recommend a good place where I can really learn to box, I’d be most grateful. It was the most exhausting workout I have ever had in my entire life. Good Lord, they make you work. But it was worth it to get to the boxing part.
