What Birthday Year are you dreading?

First off I want to send Happy Birthday wishes to everyone this past week. My son's is coming up Feb 5th and my son in laws Feb 11th.

My question is:
Has there been a birthday year such as 30, 40, or 50 that has bothered you because you were no longer in your 20's, 30's, 40's etc? My older sister fell apart and cried for a week when she turned 30. My girlfriend went around the bend when she turned 50. I'm 55 and I'm tickled pink every year. I'm beginning to think I'm a bit of an oddity because almost every woman or man I know gets all depressed over a certain birthdate (usually 40). My husband went into hiding on his 40th. Of course almost everyone that knows me is wondering when I'll grow up and act my age. I'm a bit of a Peter Pan. Am I all alone?
