THE BIG 3-7!!!!

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!

I still get excited, although 40 is scaring me a bit already. (Don't know why. 30 wasn't a big deal.) I scheduled easy lessons for my classes, I'm having a "party" with my homeroom during study hall, my mom & stepdad came into town and I'll be going out to eat. I'm trying not to have to do ANY school work tonight and I just might put it off until Sunday. Oh and Saturday I'll get together with some other family too in order to celebrate! I pretty much celebrate for a straight week. And why not? I'm happy (for the most part), healthy (almost to my goal weight) and I have so much to be thankful for. Oh, and 30 years ago last month (That's September 1978, people) I had open heart surgery and I've been very fortunate since. I truly am lucky to be alive!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I'm 39, and honestly, 38 was harder. :?) I'm actually looking forward to 40 -- what a great age to be!

Now go forth and celebrate! :?)

Happy belated birthday! Glad to hear your day was wonderful.

Hope you had a great day, Lexi!

40 ain't nothin', especially for someone who had heart surgery as a child. So look forward to 40.

38 is excellent. Really look forward to 38. I hear 83 is excellent, too, but I have a while before I can report back for sure.

Happy belated Birthday. I'm way behind in my blog reading, but wanted to give you a shout.

Thanks, Shari!

You're right, Cindy. I shouldn't be worried about 40. It's just a number anyway, right?

Hey, thanks, Travis!
