40 while 40

I'm a few months past my 40th birthday and right on track with my 40 things to do while 40 list.  I thought I would list them here to keep track...I will cross them off as I complete them.  Looking back on it I think I really needed to get the organization / de cluttering out of the way in order to start thinking of ways I can really enjoy myself.  Those things really bog me down...it is just the way my mind works.  My list is a bit of personal plans/goals and things that really do need to get done (they have been left undone for far to long).  I have lofty goals but I know I can do (most of) it!   I have to say I love being 40 and if these few months is any indication...the best is yet to come!
