Well- I'm 41. It's official.
Hummm..not what I thought it would feel like, I suppose.
Not sure what I expected, but thought at least I'd have time with my family to celebrate...worked all day, picked up kids, crammed in homework time and snack, re-showered and got kids ready for my Back To School Night, since Jeff is working in Blythe...ugh.
So much for my birthday.
Gone is the goose-pimply excitement of anticipation of your special day. No more chocolate pop-tarts delivered to you in bed before school. No more getting kidnapped by your high-school friends and driven to school in your p.j.'s, no more cake and presents after dinner...well- okay, I guess I still have that.
Birthdays aren't a bummer, just....well...different now.
I guess it is my turn to bring that kind of excitement to special days like my mom and dad did. Have little surprises planted all throughout their day to help them celebrate. Choose something exciting that will blow their socks off and say, "WOW Mom and Dad- that was the best birthday EVER!"
Last year for my 40th, Mom and Dad, awesome sister and Hubby really surprised me with a HUGE surprise party! I will blog about it for sure- it was a hoot! I felt like that old show, "This is YOUR Life"...
So here's to everyone who has a birthday this year- (hint, hint) Find people you want to be with and just plain 'ole go have fun! Do something different! Try something new! Go for Chinese food!
Happy Birthday to you...cha cha cha...
