Holy something or other, I'm 40!

Yes, I did it. I made it to forty. Weird. I certainly don't feel forty. Most days, I don't feel much over the age of five. Can't say it was a super huge eventful party type of thing, but I think that is good. I got to start my day with lots of warm birthday wishes from my friends and family and spent the rest of the day just doing my thing. I even got to sneak in a coffee and a piece of lemon almond pound cake(I cheated but it was worth it, and it didn't even raise my blood sugar at all!) My son and honey surprised me with some new dvd's to watch and a little shopping money to play with. It was all good stuff! I started a new tradition too. From this birthday on, everyone gets gifts, not just me! Ciaran got a little red truck he's been eyeing forever at the toy store, Ed got to enjoy my lemon almond pound cake with me, and Mark got a freshly baked loaf of gluten free bread(he has been dying for bread products for weeks now) I came home to find that my lovely sister had sent me a bunch of fun videos and even one she made for me to enjoy on my birthday and even more birthday wishes. It was such a lovely day! Thanks again to everyone who remembered my birthday, you made a very big birthday very special to me and I truly appreciate it!

You just made me feel ungrateful for my day. I got great birthday wishes, went to my favorite place for breakfast, and had a pretty enjoyable day, as far as days go. However, I sulked because I couldn't drink and revel like I thought I would at 40. Being pregnant made me feel like I had missed something.

Now I am rethinking the whole thing, and saying Yay! I made it to 40, my body is still young enough to carry a baby, my husband still loves me, I have great children, and I don't feel or look 40.

Thanks for the reminder.
