We live in Clayton.................it seems you tend to make friends through your children, and it just so happens both the kids are visiting family for the summer so hence we havent made a bunch of friends yet. I just dont feel right going to hang out by the pool without any kids (dont want to be labeled the middle aged perverted guy) so for now we are staying fairly close to home. The kids will be back soon, school and football will be starting, so we hope to start making a few friends. Between starting a new job and getting settled there has been plenty to keep us busy though.

I completely agree, kids are the key to socialization, especially with a relocation. We are also trying to move to Clayton and probably will have to deal with the same thing. Where in Clayton are you? Schools? Liz (Lizardlips) is right though, you should come to the meetup on July 28th.. see the post for the meetup..City-Data Forum Meet Up??? Best of luck to you! Jeannie

38 was awful for me, too! And 40 isn't scaring me a bit.

I have loved my fortys the most, because you really don't care what anybody thinks, you just enjoy!! "dance as if no one is watching" that kind of thing.

I agree with that :-)

I have to say it is inspiring to read about the number of you, especially the women, who are either approaching the big 40, arrived, or beyond it and are not afraid to admit to it. I am ashamed to say, I personally, have a big problem with my age...always have, in fact no one, not even some of my girlfriends, except my family really know how old I really am, just refuse to discuss it. Most people guess much younger, so I guess thats a good thing. My 8 and 10 year old don't even know my real age, in fact the last birthday card my 10 year old made for me.. the age on the card was off by a few years. I know, pretty pathetic on my part. So, thanks to all of you for reminding me there is life after 40...(of course looking at George Clooney, I can still come to that conclusion myself) " and I should really be grateful I'm still here to talk about it.

Here's an expression I quoted on another thread (remember this when you're feeling 'old'):

Old age is 15 years older than whatever age you are.

It's true, isn't it? When I was in my teens, 30 seemed 'old'. But now that I'm about to leave my 20's behind, I have a totally different opinion on that!
