How did I do?

Last year at this time, I posted a list of 39 things I wanted to do while I was 39. Today’s my last day of being 39, so I wanted to let you know how I did. I have to say, pretty good. I might find time tomorrow to do numbers 22,2 3 and 31, but if I don’t I won’t worry about. Turning 40 has forced me to relax a bit. And I couldn’t be happier.
