Hi again.
Did I mention that I turned forty this past summer?  My husband and I both have birthdays in July only two days apart.  This is a picture of us on his birthday just before we went out for breakfast with the family.  Since I turned forty, we had a party!  We went to a bar that overlooks the zocalo and had a fun time with lots of friends.  I am not at all embarrassed to say that I sang and danced to "All about that bass".  Two friends were supposed to dance with me but one chickened out in the end.  I hear we bombed but it was really fun.  I'm glad there is no video clip as evidence.
I was sort of dreading the big FOUR OH, but it was a fun time and well, what can I do about it?  I'm forty.  Ni modo.  Life marches on, like Dolly Parton says in Steel Magnolias.  Then she says something about realizing that it has marched right on across your face.  That's also true. I told my husband, who is eight years older than I am, that I love the lines around his eyes because they show how much he laughs and smiles.  I love his lines but I don't reallly want any like them even though I've already got a few.
Party 40 (just getting started)

Well, I'm on a roll.  I hope to post again soon!


  1. You ARE on a roll! Good for you! A few weeks ago, I was just about to take you off my blogroll (having given the blog up for dead . . . oh, how it pained me!). So glad I didn´t! Now I´m inspired to get cracking on mine more.

    Congratulations on the birthday, too! ;)

  2. Thanks Jill! Congratulations to you as well! :)
