Forty Fabulous is Fabulous

I often joke that I'm a week behind on pretty much everything...and here is a perfect example...I missed the blog posting about me that was posted exactly one week ago at Forty Fabulous.  But see, I'm past making excuses for my persistent tardiness.  This has just become my normal.  Those of you that do things on time are the freaks...at least that is what late people like me say about you.  

Anyway, Marjie Killeen and I met at a holiday party in December.  And I certainly think she is Forty Fabulous!  It was a great connection because I love what she's doing on her blog.  Not just because she said nice things about me (most of which are true), but because she's talking about the good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly aspects of growing older as a woman.  

Her post today is about her experience with an abnormal mammogram, which fortunately turned out to be okay.  It is estimated that a woman who has yearly mammograms between ages 40 and 49 has about a 30 percent chance of having a false-positive mammogram and about a 7 percent to 8 percent chance of having a breast biopsy within the 10-year period.  So yeah, a lot of us will have the same experience as Marjie at some point in our lives. 

And she owns a zebra print bra!  How cool is that?  I clearly need to do some shopping.  Does anyone else have an animal print bra? 

Check out her blog!
