Check out Will’s package

Will of Designer Blog sent me a wonderful surprise in the mail that I received today!

Ooo... a box in the snail mail for me!

I was a little confused at first and thought maybe it was intended for Spo…

Tea? Wot's this?

But inside I found much awesomeness:

Ooo... it's a tea party! Like as in Boston, not the crazy political people of today.

Thank you so much, Will! I greatly appreciate both the thought and the rubber ducky! He has a home in my collection:

The Big 4-0

Today… I’m 40.

It's easier to blow them out when there's only two of them...

I don’t feel like 40. Not that I know what 40 is *supposed* to feel like.

My only reference of what 40 is supposed to feel like is the mental picture I have of the not-biologicals when I was a youngling. And I definitely don’t feel like that. And I sure as hell don’t think I look like that either.

And I have lost count of how often I get told to grow up. That’s a good sign that I’m still youthful, right?

There are times I catch myself pondering deep thoughts that I think are things other people hitting 40 must ponder. Or I am assuming that’s what other people turning 40 must think. Like how the hell did 40 get here so fast?

Truth be told: it’s just another day. I know one day I won’t have another day. So I’m just glad for this one. I plan to soak up and savor the hours I have with those around me.

And of course, have a beverage or two.

Until next time...

P.F.D.

Pre-Forty Dinner, that is.

So, today, Sunday, is the last full day of my 39th year.

The Husbear attempted to “surprise” me with having my best friends over for dinner and a celebration. Which somewhat succeeded. In the surprise part. In the way I didn’t know about it. 😉

40. I don't know that I like that number....

But I blew out the candles regardless.

I had a great evening with my besties: Mike, Dwayne, MAG, GypsyBiscuit, the Husbear, our oldest daughter and her husband.

Much food and alcohol was had. And then some Cards Against Humanity as well…

I received the most excellent present ever. Ever.

Seriously. The best present ever!!!!

I love my besties. So very much. And I’m glad they took time out of their schedules to come spend some time with me.

And now I’m drunk. Because alcohol was gifted and drank.

Tomorrow shall be interesting….

Until next time...
