Is that rude? Oh well! Today is my 41st birthday. Kinda wanted to keep this one low key, but I'm receiving so many sweet calls and funny emails and invitations for lunch and dinner - I'm starting to feel kinda festive now! Not that turning 41 bothers me. I'm not one of those gals that freaked out when I turned 40. It's nothing but a number to me. But, after everyone made such a huge deal out of my birthday last year, I just kinda feel awkward doing it all over again! I don't like to be the center of attention (any more - I did when I was a young whipper snapper!). But, you know what? If my friends and family want to shower me with love and attention today - oh heck! Why not let 'em?!?
I am a stay-at-home Mom of one daughter, Madeleine, 2 dogs (Phoebe & Sophie) and wife to my wonderful (most of the time!) husband, John, a confirmed work-a-holic. I am a reformed "wild child" of the 90's and now am a nearly unrecognizable (by those who knew me "back in the day") housewife who worries daily about how her daughter perceives her and what kind of an adult she'll turn out to be.
