Happy Birthday to Me

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. :)


  1. Steele can do seated quarter turns on the haunches!!! I was waiting till the 13th to wish you happy birthday..guess I would have been late!!! Have a great one!

  2. I totally agree. My 40s have been the best decade by far! Not that my 30 were bad or anything, but life is getting richer and deeper. I constantly tell my husband that I feel like I live such a charmed and blessed life. I turned 42 in January; I am excited that I "get" 7 more years of being in my 40s. I can't wait to see what they bring me. (You might have inspired a blog post on the joys of being a 40 something Adult Ammie.)

    1. it has been a fun decade. :) I look forward to your blog post.

  3. Aww happy birthday!!!! I love your outlook and you're right about your boys. :) I love the video! I don't think I've ever seen a horse sit to turn around to roll on the other side! Steele is so silly!!!!

  4. Happy very very very belated birthday!! Your birthday is actually the day after mine (but different year).
