I Turn 43 Today
Today I turn 43 years old, in the past (age 40 - 42) I have thrown big weekend parties but this time I decided that I wasn't going to do that. I felt like it's just 43, now when I turn 45 that's going to be a different story.
I have amazing friends and family... I got over 200 Facebook posts wishing me a Happy Birthday and about 50 or so tweets. Family called to wish me Happy Birthday as did a few close friends. And I got some text messages and a few birthday cards. I felt well loved today. Thank you all for those warm wishes.
I didn't do a single thing today, my plan was to just chill and watch TV but since I did that yesterday because I was sick I was actually bored today. I didn't want to "work", ie painting or podcasting. So it turned into a blah kind of day.
I can't say this was a great birthday, I felt very alone (and I know that's crazy with all the love and messages I was getting), but I do appreciated all the birthday wishes how every I got them. I want to thank all those who sent gifts over the past few weeks (they are definably not required) but they are very much appreciated. I think this taught me a lesson.. Birthday are best when spent with friends.. I won't make that mistake again.
