Happy Birthday to Me...


I never really had any trouble with my age until last year hit and I turned 45. That one hit rather hard, as if I was no longer in my 40's but rather speeding toward 50 with no brakes! Of course the alternative is worse, so I'll take 46 with a grain of salt and resolve to be a better person, focus on what makes me happy and gives me joy and do some good things this year that I enjoy doing.

After all the days off, hubby had to work on my birthday, but I have loads to do today and time has passed quickly and he's due home in a few short hours. We are picking up a nice dinner of ribs (salmon for hubby) to bring home and I have several movies lined up to watch over the next few days. After today he's off again until Monday.

I got everything on my list for Christmas including Sue Spargo's EQ6 software program, a bobbin winder, and the complete Jamestown line of civil war FQ's. I've already started to wash those so I can make some swap blocks. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their family and friends, and you all have a joyous New Year. I'll see you back here in 2008!

Happy Birthday to you Judy! Sounds like you have a nice time planned. I don't even think about my age anymore, and when someone asks me how old I am, I have to do the math, then it hits me that I'm approaching 49! LOL

Omigosh, I am 62. I didn't start to feel the age thing until 60. Well, OK, except the 50 thing. My son told me the year I turned 60 that it's the new 50. I do believe it. I still climb mountains, do yoga, craft, quilt, travel. And we are looking forward to our first grandchild. Life is good. Do not fret!

Judy, 46 is young! In fact you're 6 months younger than I am. I'm loving this time of my life.

Patti said...

A very happy birthday to you Judy - a few days late! Oh my - 46 sounds so very young! You are 15 years younger than I am! I hope it was the wonderful day you deserve.

atet said...

A very happy (if belated) birthday to you Judy! It sounds like your Christmas was merry and that your new year is looking to be busy and filled with sewing -- just the way it should be :0). Here's hoping the new year brings you much joy and love.

Megan said...

better late than never....A very Happy Belated Birthday to you! And a wonderful New Year as well!

Marcie said...

I can't believe I missed your birthday! Hope it was a happy one! I just "celebrated" mine also. Happy New Year Judy!
