I think my starter is about to die!

for the last couple of days now, when I tried to start the car, it sounded like the starter was spining, but not actually connecting with anything. after 4 - 10 tries, it eventually kicks in, and starts up right away!

I know this is a horrible description, but not really sure how to explain it!

Starter? Ring gear? Both? Maybe just a bendix -- you'll need to take a peek...
