Its my birthday and I'll cry if I want too..



40 years ago on August 11th at 3 am I came into this world crying and I may have to repeat the performance for this birthday :O)
I am not sure I am thrilled about this particular birthday it seems like it should be a milestone. I should be "over the hill" but I still feel like I am 19.
We will have to see how it goes. I already bought my own gifts last week and my parents and mother in law both want to take me to dinner at some point this month so I am thinking it is going to be pretty anti-climatic.

I hope you are all having a fantastic day!

Happy 40th my fellow 1969er! I too still feel like a kid and sometimes behave like one too. 40's just a number, just enjoy everyday as it comes!!
Hugs to you and I hope you spoilt yourself!!! Enjoy dinner

Happy Birthday! Ah, 40 was not so bad (although my hubby says I was a bear on that birthday) and then 50 I survived - next year I turn 60 and my mind keep telling me that is soooooooo old, no way I am going to be 60! Each decade has it advantages though, and with 60 soon retirement follows right after that, so I guess 60 does not sound so bad.

Your gingerman is so cute, sounds like a fund swap.

Hey Carin! Wow! How funny is this ... my Beloved Geek Boy turned 40 today ... August 11!! You're twins! Tee! Hee! Hee! He's already had a low key dinner with his family, we had dinner at our fave restaurant tonight and I'm whisking him off for a romantic weekend on Friday after work - he didn't want a party. Hope that even though your birthday is quiet and low key that you're reassured that birthday wishes and Happy Vibes are being sent your way from Australis! :0) Birthday Bear Hugs! KRIS PS. You're not really 40, you're 39 with GST! :0) BH! K

Happy Birthday Carin! I'll be hitting that one myself in a couple of years. Yikes.

I see it as turning 20 twice, so you could have to 20th parties.
Then when you get to 42, you can have two 21sts. Twice the fun!
Happy Birthday :-)

Happy Birthday Carin. I'm sorry I missed it but I just found you. I'm so glad to be here and have enjoyed reading and looking over your other posts. I will be trying to catch up with you as I go back.

It's amazing that you've been blogging for so long too. I just caught on nearly two years ago when I started my family blog. It's really fun and thanks for visiting my blog and entering my giveaway. Good Luck!
