Cool 46 going on 16

I'm younger now than when I was in my twenties.
@ 20 I was raising two kids and trying to be the sole breadwinner in a home with a High Maintenance wife. I was angry all the time and felt reallllllllly old
@ 30 I lived alone in a one bedroom apartment and sent most of my money to my ex-wife. I stopped being angry and started feeling joy at each new day. I felt thirty-something.
@ 40 I was a newlywed of 5 years and these are the best times of my life.
I am 46 now and I feel like a kid again. Midlife Crisis? Maybe. I think it has more to do with realizing that the world doesn't rest on my shoulders and I can ask for help once in a while.
But the downside is I have abused my body for so long and worked so hard that now it thinks it is time to retire.
Ce la Vie.

Traded in a 2005 Toyota Tundra Regular Cab i had built for desert racing for $11,777.

Prius was in an advertisement in March for $19,947. Went in that morning at 10AM and bought it. The payment is 1 week of work and I am lucky enough to be living at home while going to school.

I originally posted this in the wrong place (you have to bear with us old guys - we have "sometimers" moments) so i will move it here and hope it is in the right place now

How old am i? well i was born on September 13 - 1938 - so i guess that makes me 69 years 326 days old (funny seems longer than that) the month i turned 14 years old i got a job on a farm 2 states away and never moved back home - been on my own ever since. Worked lots of jobs in my lifetime, from mechanic to construction - from stunt man to teacher - professional racer - sailor - computer designer to truck driver - you name it and i have most likely worked in that field - As they say "jack of all trades - master of none" - I have lived a long and busy life and enjoyed every minute of it (well except for that day in 1952 <g>) I still enjoy life and try every day to learn something new.
Hope that answers your question <lol>

Wife's 10 years older, but everyone assumes I'm the older one. I guess if she were bald too I might have a chance...

Yup! I only get to say this for one year, so I gotta milk it for all it's worth!
