40 yrs Young!

  Today is my 40th birthday! I celebrate in spirit with my Guardian Angel, my bday buddy - my Gpa Gail!

Despite my post last night, I woke up feeling great. IDK! I tossed and turned all night and finally got up about 7:15. When I walked out there was all kinds of decorations put up around the house and outside. B & the kids got up around 2am and decorated. It looked fabulous & put a big smile on my face. I had a cup of coffee, searched the web a bit, checked email, then went for my run. Happy birthday to me, had my best time in a long time. Not the best, but for me, 3.7 miles in 29 mins is great!!!

When I got back, the kids had breakfast and another cup of coffee for me. They had an egg white omelet with spinach and mushrooms, a slice of toast and raspberries. YUM, best breakfast ever!

Then they had me open my gifts and each one was perfect. Even though I was dreading it being my bday (not because of turning 40, just because can't celebrate how I wanted), it is turning out to be great.

My parents even stopped by on their way home from Dad's physical therapy (rehab from brain aneurysms). He couldn't make it up the porch stairs but did walk on the grass for his first time since the brain surgeries. WTG Dad, so proud of you!!!! That made my birthday also.

Now off to do my homework, then run the girls to their sleepover. I don't think I'm going for the tattoo, not enough time. That's ok, there's always another day. I can add that to my 40th bucket list which I will post later.

Thanks for listening to me vent yesterday!

Hmm? Either double chocolate chunk brownies (from a box) or Oatmeal/choc.chip/butterscotch chip/cinnamon cookies (homemade).

A spider definitely! Ick though!
