Ha ha okay the "scandals" portion of the title was for rhyming and also MAYBE hooked your attention.
Blogging to you fresh off my 1 day engagement as the Birthday Boy - it was a fun day yesterday - especially connecting with so many via phone and social media. My super awesome family blew up my phone early in the day and I heard from 4 parents, 1 brother, my sole living grandparent (that's 1 Nana), and a great aunt and uncle (2 octogenarians.) All were doing well and that is what you pray for... and we had some nice chuckles in yesterday or today's chats as I dutifully bring the generational caboose (in my nuclear fam) across the 40 year yard line. These tracks are clear until the nieces get here and our next generation enters the fray!
Spirits were high yesterday - dinner with friends and cocktails with co-workers... but today was sort of a settling into the new decade kind of mind set. Gotta say it feels like I'd been spying a comfy pair of jeans in the window for the past few years... and turning forty was analogous to walking in - slapping down the karmic credit card and buying the damn things at last! And they fit!
So thanks to all who shouted out on Facebook, Twitter, text, phone, those who provided the tasty dinner at Basset's, the cold beers at Cugini's and the mini cakes (and spared me the blowing out of the candles.) All are so appreciated as we set sale in this land of opportunity called... today!
Love life, live love. Peace ya'll.
