Another year older

And today is my birthday. So far, one Happy Birthday phone call from BFF and lots of birthday wishes from online friends.

It's a low key birthday. Not a particularly special number. I'm throwing an easy dinner in the crockpot in a bit and maybe there will be cake. Perhaps I'll go to bed early. No parties. I'm getting old.

I don't feel my age. Most days I look around and think "How am I a grown-up? I have 4 kids, a husband and a mortgage and I don't feel like a grown-up. I'm still 17!"

But really, I'm not. Not even close. I'm starting to notice laugh lines around my eyes and I've been trying rather unsuccessfully to cover some gray hair for months. I am closer to 40 than to 30 now and I'm still trying to decide how I feel about that.

So Happy Birthday to me. Here's to another great year ahead!


  1. Sweetheart,
    I know you're an adult but I still often think of you as seventeen. Happy Birthday
