I am pretty sure this is the longest I’ve gone without blogging in . . . well, since I started back in 2004. Can’t believe it’s been that long, but yep. It has.
It’s my birthday. I’m 39. I love who I am today. I love my life. I can remember so many not great birthdays, or birthdays where something or someone was missing. I can remember one birthday which no human should have to live through. Today was not like that. Today was perfect in its simplicity and calm.
Today I am middle age. Halfway there. Halfway where? i do not know, because, for the most part, I feel like I am where I should be.
Did I mention that I had an awesome dinner with my husband, and we are going to Mexico in April for our tenth anniversary? Not a bad gift. Not bad at all. Plus, my husband understands me enough to know that I will enjoy looking forward to it as much as going.
I got good news tonight, too, and it made me happy. Things are good.
Oh, and Facebook? You can pooh pooh the book all you want, but there is nothing like receiving hundreds of messages, from family, childhood friends, former coworkers, and everyone else under the sun, on your birthday. it is a pretty amazing medium, to say the least. Thanks to all my wonderful friends who took a second to reach out to me. It was appreciated and every single one made me smile. Every one.
