The Day After

What a spectacular day yesterday was. The special day of my birthday bash. I must say, my 40th birthday has been, hands down the best birthday I've ever had. I've been spoiled beyond belief by my Turtle love and the outpouring of love from family and friends has been stellar. Mrs. M even made a special one-day trip from Reno just to celebrate with me! Red and the flartist gave me the most amazingly beautiful floral arrangements EVER!! Mommy really outdid herself to celebrate my 40th. I truly could not have asked for more!!

Highlights of the day include a scrapbook that everyone helped me create of the day, and of course, the birthday roast MC'd by Mrs. M. Even though it was a roast of me, I think Turtle ended up being even more roasted than myself with the story of his nickname being made public, in front of his mom! Yup, until yesterday the nature of the nickname had been kept safely secret from the family but, now, everyone pretty much knows the story of how Turtle came to be. {{giggles}} Poor Turtle, he took it all in stride and loves me anyway!!

Off to bed to dream of my fabulous day.

Happy Accident to Celebrate: Love from my friends and family. I'd be nowhere without it!

Summer is Well and Truly Here

It's hot. It's not just hot but it's H O T hot. UGH!

I remember I used to get so excited for summer to come. Looking forward to all the sunshine, beach parties; lounging by the pool. Now when I think of summer, I cry. The numbness, fatigue, dizziness. BBLLIICCKKKK!!!

So, now, I'll celebrate Winter and will anxiously await its return. I'm looking forward to the cool crisp days and the chilly evenings. Looking forward to sleeping less and getting way more accomplished in life. Who knows, if this keeps up I may even become a Christmas convert and look forward to the holiday celebrations. I don't think I'm ready to take it that far yet.

Happy Accident to Celebrate: Learning to adapt -- even when it really and truly pisses me off that I have too!

5 Days and Counting...

...until my 40th birthday bash. I'm so thoroughly excited about the upcoming party, that it is taking the sting off of the bite of turning 40.

It still seems a bit unreal to me that my 30s are over and I'm entering a whole new decade...my 4th decade. It seems like yesterday that I was 20'something. Weird to think I'm 40'something. I'm still in a bit of disbelief.

I am having a dream come true turning 40; and that is, having a HUGE birthday party. The last count my mom sent me we have about 58 RSVPs for the party! Imagine that, close to 60 people all under one roof just to celebrate ME! I love it when the world revolves around me in a non-vertiginous way!

So, I may be turning 40 in a about 6 days but life is still pretty good!

Happy Accident to Celebrate: Having a dream come true with no expectation of it happening. Thanx mommy....I wonder how she knew? I always thought this was a secret dream.
