Today is my birthday.
I am 49. Yes really.
The funny thing is that I had a bit of a 'bobble' at the thought that next year I will be 50.
It's not so much the aging thing but that I've loved my 40s. It seems that my life is continuing to get richer and there is far more happiness and contentment then in my earlier decades. Not that the were misrable. They were good too.
So I decided that I would spend this year really enjoying my last 365 days of being in my 40's.
How can I not when I have these critters that work on ensuring that I am never ever bored.
Like yesterday when Steele ran under the gate board of the my new riding ring. Sigh. He didn't quite fit so it shattered. I need a second board to discourage such behavior.
However, on returning him up there things went a little better.
How can I not enjoy my life:
But tonight Ed and I are going to a dinner and a dance so I'd better get ready. :)
