Well, it’s official. I’ve entered my forties. Sigh. Bigger sigh… I’ve been dreading forty since I turned thirty-nine, but now that the day is here I actually don’t FEEL any older than I did yesterday. I guess that’s a good sign!! 🙂 Last night Bryan had a surprise party for me with lots of friends and we had a super fun time together. In addition to the usual dinner, cake, and mingling among the guests, there was a spontaneous break out into the “chicken dance” in the kitchen (which Katie loved!), there was a whiffle ball game in the homeschool room (don’t ask…), and there was a fun session of flying Austin’s radio controlled helicopter around the living room. And, to top it all off, Bryan surprised me with a really cute and funny happy birthday video that he had secretly made for me with the help of family and friends. So, I guess turning the big 4-0 wasn’t that bad! I’m not even going to think about turning 50 for at least another year or so. 🙂 For those interested, click here to watch the video Bryan made for me.
