Meanwhile, on most days I'm just doing everything I can just to make it until 7 o'clock, where I then rely upon my old standby of just winging it and hoping everything works out.
So tonight, amidst the chaos that is bedtime around here and while the boys were splashing enough water out of the tub to fill up Lake Eerie, I googled "things people accomplished at the age of 40".
Courtesy of www.personalfinancebythebook.com are a few things I found out.
- John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth.
- Harriet Beecher Stowe, a mother of six who occasionally wrote for magazines, published Uncle Tom’s Cabin, an antislavery novel of such force that it is generally recognized as one of the causes of the Civil War.
- Jean Eugene Atget, now considered one of the greatest photographers, took up photography.
Can I just go back to 30 and get a do-over or something?
