OH MY GOD I'M 40 YEARS OLD!! How the heck did that happen?
I'm happy to report that this year everyone in my household is well for my birthday. Last year, my husband was struck down over my birthday weekend with a horrible stomach virus and we did nothing. This year, though, we got lucky! On Saturday, we went out for a fancy dinner at a restaurant that has a beautiful view of the city, then we went out for drinks before heading home. It was nice to get out and have a babysitter.
Today, the kids have the day off from school since it's MLK Day, and we're going to take it easy. I appreciate every single one of you. And now I'm off to enjoy my birthday!
