Happy Birthday to Me (and Kaycie too)
Yep, I've made it to 48. Hard to believe. I have a busy day planned: hour-long walk with Jake (he needs it or he's impossible in the evening -- actually, he's impossible in the evening anyway), gym (haven't been in a few weeks), lunch with friend, dinner with kids, drinks with friends. No diet today.
Last year I did nothing for my birthday and I felt awful. Not even a glass of wine. And of course hubby was down in London. This year will be different, I decided. I have to take care of myself. I planned to go out with my kids, then my friends called up and asked to take me out. How great is that?
Thinking back to previous birthdays, I've had some real duds. I'm so fortunate in my life now. I just have to remind myself of that from time to time. My daughter got up early and made me a piece of toast and glass of orange juice. Then we went up to my room, got my son up, and opened my presents -- boxing gloves among them. Gotta get out that aggression somehow!
A big kiss to all of you, especially Kaycie and others who were born on this day. We share our birthday (but not our bank account) with Elvis and David Bowie.
