At First the year doesn't seem like that big of deal, then everyone starts posting that they turned 40.
Then all of a sudden the year seems very important.
I remember in High School when 2010 seemed like SOOO far away.
One of the kids said - "So do you plan on retiring by 2020?"
I can't even think of that. I wish I could retire then. When you look at the new Social Security stuff, I can't retire until I am 68. That will be like 2038. Oh now that looks scary written down.
Plus I won't have enough years in as a teacher come 2020.
Ah well, life continues- on we go...
