So I turned 40 a couple of weeks ago. There was a fun little party with all of my favorite foods and lots of my favorite people! It's weird to turn 40, mostly because when you're really young, that sounds REALLY old. But once you're here it's more like, where did the last 20 years go?? I don't feel like I thought 40 would feel! But it's good. I like my 40 better than I thought 40 would be. :)
Things I've learned/I'm not afraid to admit now that I'm 40:
I've realized I can't do everything I think I should be doing, and that's okay.
*on a related note - having a clean house is great, but not always possible (without paid help).
I'm addicted to making friends.
I like Sci-Fi and Westerns.
I'm more of a garment sewer than a quilter - mostly because I like a quick finish!
Having a 2 year old is a good disguise for being 40.
I love a good burger.
Most of my days are fueled by diet Dr. Pepper.
Doing something is better than doing nothing.
So, my birthday present was our trip! And a post-deployment break for the two of us. It was convenient that it timed well with my 40th and my BIL and SIL's 5th anniversary (we went with them). I have been supremely spoiled by mrlouwho and it was a great way to start out this new decade! Here's to being on the young end of something again!
oh and PS - I got an amazing present from a truly thoughtful friend. We don't live near an IKEA and she picked one of these up for me last time she went! Now I can be part of the cool club!
