So Long, 2008!

It’s my birthday today, and thankfully I’m not depressed about it like last year. I seem to have trouble with the mid-decades. 25 was awful, and 35 somewhat devastating, but 36 is a breeze.

It should be a good day. We’re still in K-town, and I’m sleeping in every day. McHotty is taking me for birthday lunch, while Cakes and her Grandmother do some “important jobs” (which I think involves a chocolate cake with my name on it). Tonight we’ll have a gourmet meal, and play Cranium by the fire. McHotty’s sisters and hubbies are here too, so it’s a nice crowd.

As for the coming year, it should be very exciting (more to come on that later). I’m not making any resolutions but these:

1. Spend quality time with family and friends.
2. Read a hell of a lot of books (I’ve already started a new book club which begins in 2 weeks!)
3. Use my time wisely.

Happy New Year, my friends. May 2009 be filled with health and happiness.

I loved 25. I thought, "Finally, I am out of my early twenties!"

Glad 36 was easier on you!

36? You're such a little, tiny baby.
Happy birthday, young lady.
