Yes, I am no longer 40..I am now 43. I cannot change the name of my blog because, quite honestly, I have no idea how to do that. There, now you know.
I have been having a wonderful birthday. What I have learned about birthdays is that you think people don't think about you the way you might think about them, but then they surprise you. Yes, I am not saying something negative. Maybe 43 is the start of something new. Maybe the fact that we only lost power for 15 minutes instead of 7 days has changed the karma of my being. I got wonderful gifts, including a coconut lime cake that was a totally incredible gesture of kindness(and to make sure that I stay a good 50 pounds more than the person who baked it). But my day began with a miracle. My day began with husband #1 waking the boys up for school, the boys giving me cards and then going downstairs to a kitchen decorated with a birthday banner, balloons(which included a very large princess balloon, because "you are a very large princess"..at least for today-tomorrow, I will just be very large..and that's ok)..and, I FINALLY got the corn muffin that i have been waiting for since Mother's Day. So what if took 6 months. It was a muffin, it was fresh and I ate it with a big smile on my face.
We won't go into the hair coloring fiasco because that would be negative...and I am no longer a negative person. At least not today.
Thanks for all of your birthday wishes and may all of your karma be good!
