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.)
