Today is all about me. Yep, it's my birthday. That picture above was taken while my BFF and I were in Hawaii (You know, the trip I went on a couple of weeks ago. Have I mentioned it?). We went to dinner after we went to see Cirque Polynesia and the manager asked us why we were in Hawaii, etc. etc. I'm pretty sure he was expecting for us to say we were on our honeymoon. We told him we were on a vacation to celebrate our 40th birthdays and that we were two years late in the celebration. Being the kind manager that he was, he and the waitress decorated our dessert plates, honoring our 40th birthdays and NOT our 42nd birthdays. They know how to butter up their customers for a big tip.
I will be celebrating this afternoon by going to lunch, alone (which I love to do) and reading "East of Eden" (Again. It's one of my favorite books.) while I eat without having to talk to anyone or cut up anyone's food. After lunch, I am going to get a 90 minute massage from one of the best massage therapists I know (besides myself, of course!). The evening will be spent with the family.
So today, it is my day. But feel free to wish LQ "Happy Birthday" too. Her birthday was Sept. 2.
I am a 40 something chick, married (to Motorcycle Guy, AKA MG) and raising three boys (Big E, Sous Chef and CJ). We live in the burbs, which I am still adjusting to, even after 11+ years, and counting!
