    Hey there…you and I am almost exactly the same age….I turn 40 in March…and I am going thru the same process. I am glad to read your blog. It is a touch of reality! I have several friends who have gone through this, but in different circumstances….yours are exactly like mine (more or less) anyway. I started a blog as well, though I am at the very beginning of my process. My blog is called “My New Normal” http://mynewnormalsmbc.blogspot.com/

    It is nice to know there are other people out there like me :) By the way, I am in Boulder, Colorado :) Good Luck…Julia
