39, Baby!

It's my birthday today!

I'm excited to be 39. I have some weird sense of pride that it doesn't upset me the way it seems to upset some of my contemporaries.

As for celebrating, I had to solicit hugs from my kids, and I have laundry and errands to do. But tonight --- Irish food and some ice cream cake with my family.

My friend Kirsten gave me a card where she wrote, "have a wonderful 'go crazy before your 40s' kind of a year!" I like that. I think I will. Maybe I can come up with something crazy to do even today! (Other than laundry, of course.)

Welcome to the age of 39! I've been 39 for a couple of weeks and it really doesn't feel any different than 38! I hope your
39th year is your best ever!

Happy Belated Birthday, Friend! When I read your title, "39, Baby!" I thought for a second that maybe you were going to have a baby at age 39??? But I guess the "baby" was just to emphasize your birthday excitement! Love you!
