Birthday Girl

Yep, here it is... my birthday. I'm 44 today!

I wonder why it is that we still feel 20-something-ish in our heads. I know I'm not 20-something. I don't think I'd really want to be 20-something again... although I would change somethings, like how I parented my son when he was a toddler. From that I know that I've grown and changed my attitude about life, love and a lot of things. Forty-ish seems to have made me more reflective of choices and consequences.

Well, off to start the day!

It's 12:51pm. I generally love Saturdays. Mike is up early for work and I get to sleep in. Buster snuggles in tight once Mike is gone and we stretch and doze and roll over and sleep some more. I didn't get up until 9:45 this morning! That's practically a record for me!

The boys stayed up late and watched Avatar. Seth said it ended around 1:30 this morning. Oh to be a teenager again. Brand is planning an afternoon movie with Addi and another friend.

I have the crock pot going with a beef roast. I have caught up on current events. I think it's time to start a new book. Yay!!

I'm officially the shortest human in this home. And I'll continue to shrink in stature for a few more years. Fortunately I still have a drill-sargeant voice that can bring them to their knees... at least for a few minutes.

Spring has Sprung and I'm loving it!

It's been weeks since I even visited my own blog... so busy being outside in the wonderful Midwest spring weather. I love daffodils and tulips blooming madly... the irises will be along shortly. I love looking at the trees that were recently completely bare, and now they are leafed out and full of life. The birds are twittering around all around our building. I'm sure nesting season is fast approaching.
I even planted a few flowers this weekend... room for another post!
