I celebrated a milestone birthday this weekend. I wish I could say how hard it was for me and how I felt so old, but it wasn’t and I don’t. I’m grateful every day for the quality of my life. I might be maturing. Oh, gad. Really?
My brother and bestsissyinlaw gave me a low-key party. It was them and my “D and J”. It was perfect. I cannot tell you how much I love these people. OK. It would have been perfecter if my Peanut and Lil Bits could have been there, but they couldn’t.

Now, how I spent my actual birthday. This is how I know I’ve matured. I went to church. Came home. Ate lunch and went to visit my old boss who had a stroke two weeks ago and is in rehab. Ten years ago I wouldn’t have done that because my birthday was so very important. Now, I’m aware that I am blessed and understand the need to share my life with those I care about. My old boss and I have know each other since I was 22 and he 38. We’ve been through so many life experiences that he is water family.  It was one of the hardest things I’ve done since I lost my Mom.   Yet, it was so uplifting.

I was so busy I didn’t get to my spinning until Sunday evening.   I can honestly say I’m enjoying the spinning immensely.   It’s wonderful when I have the attention span of a gnat(which this time of year seems constant).

Do you love how I inserted the e-tr*de baby for your enjoyment?  I adore these ads.   I might be unwell;-D    Happy Monday all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S.  I won’t be participating in the 10 on 2sday because I don’t know 10 Oscar winning movies.   I know.  I know.

    The nice thing about growing older is we understand what’s important. Giving of yourself, even on a special day, is just your style. You are such a warm and generous person. Happy Birthday. Celebrate in anyway you can all week! You deserve it.

    PS I don’t know anything about movies, Oscar winners or not.

    Happy birthday and many more, dear friend! You’re not the only one whose spinning has been neglected, though I did watch a certain football game and get some done last night. Have a great week! (I agree with you & Margene on the movies!)

    Happy Birthday! Looks like you had a great birthday – when you get to spend it any way you want, which you did 🙂 I’m a sucker for those ads too (I liked the sneezing kitty). I’m not sure I can name 10 Oscar winning movies either – perhaps you can change it up and list your top 10 fave movies instead?

    Happy Belated Birthday! I’m glad you had an enjoyable weekend and got to spend time with people who matter to you.

    I hope you had a wonderful birthday, and I am glad you were able to spend it with loved ones!

  8. Happy Belated Birthday!!! Glad to hear you are enjoying spinning. I have too, despite a loooooong break I’m really happy with both the process and the results. Imagine!

    I hear you on the 10 on Tuesday. I’m going to do some googling and see if I can find anything other than the winning picture lists. If I don’t turn something up that is helpful in 10 minutes or so I’ll move on.

    Happy Happy HAPPY (belated, sorry) Birthday to you, Dearest! Isn’t it wonderful? Finding our truer selves and being so good with it!
    Sorry to hear about your ex-boss having a stroke, rehab, and you’re such Good Family!
    Oscars… meh. just not that into it.

    Ah, much belated birthday wishes! But then in this house we tend to celebrate a birthday month . We justify anything we want to do but feel vaguely guilty about by “Hey, it’s my birthday this month so I get to do that!” Feel free to adopt our attitude! Seriously, so glad to hear it was a good day and here’s hoping the milestone kicks off a great period for you.
