Monday was my 40th birthday. May the fourth be with you.
My birthday gift(s) to myself included taking the day off of work (with the thought that since it happened to be day 1 of the payperiod, I would have 2 weeks to make up the time here and there), a reiki session (if you haven't tried this, I highly recommend it), and NOT dealing with the house/move for the day.
Parts 1 and 2 were successful...part 3 not so much....but that is a discussion for another time.
I received lots of text well wishes over the day....and as it worked out, they were spaced out. The reason this was sort of fun is that the program I use for texting has a built in .GIF of falling birthday cakes when you either send or receive "happy birthday." It was fun all day long to look at my phone and see falling cakes. (Pumpkins fall on Halloween, and Christmas trees on Christmas!).
My friends came over and brought dinner and cake. It was so thoughtful and we all had a nice time. One of the girls is a "Survivor" fan, so Bossy loved talking about the show with her. My parents even remember to call! I got a very strange card from them which further proves how far they have deteriorated. Very strange.
G-man and the kids were probably the thorn in the otherwise terrific day. This has brought up all sorts of other things which is now throwing me off. Too many thoughts in my head.
I am so NOT where I thought I would be at 40. But this is where I am....so the only choice is to accept that this is what it is now, and I can only move forward. I am ready to shake it all up. Because there are alot of things that just aren't working. I feel like my life is a big jigsaw puzzle and I am forcing pieces to fit together. They don't make a picture. The blue sky piece doesn't fit in the middle of the red barn no matter how you turn it.
So happy 40th birthday to me....may the next 40 years be eventful in a totally different way than the first 40!
