That is how old I am today. Unbelievable, I'm not sure how it happened. I'm not just 40 anymore, I'm officially "in my forties". I realized that I've been 21 for 20 years. WowWee!!
We always treated our birthday like a major holiday in our family. We were spoiled all day, special meals, presents, cake...the whole shebang. My sister, who is in her thirties, actually takes an entire month to celebrate her birthday. She spreads her celebrations out among her friends...she has a lot of them, so I guess she does need an entire month to fit everyone in.
Being the introvert I am, I'm happy with one day to celebrate life and just "be". I scheduled a very light workday and I'm going to get a mani/pedi and do some shopping. I may even take a nap. (A true sign of someone who has been 21 for 20 years, I LOVE naps!) Tonight Bill and I are going out to dinner with my sister and her boyfriend. It's going to be a fabulous day! Being 41 years young isn't so bad.
