Guess Who's "40"?

OK really I can't believe it but yes I hit the big 40! And I really feel pretty great about it. 30, just about did me in, but now I am only that much closer to being a Grandma.....(Not that close) and 1/2 way through my life! (What you say?) Well it may seem a little crazy to some of you, but I have an agreement with my girls that if I live to be 80 that they are to take away all food and water, because I want to live life, not just exist - Any Over 80 is not where I want to be. Take it as you will, but it works for me and the girls are probably happy they won't be changing my diapers...

This has actually been a week long birthday - And I love birthdays!!!
