It's My Birthday!

Thanks to everyone who sent cards, ecards, and emails! I'm having a great birthday so far. I kicked off the celebration by...sleeping in! I know this doesn't surprise many of you, but really, I don't sleep in a whole lot anymore now that I've been employed.

*Mandatory waxing poetic on another passing year*

I can't believe I'm 34. Where did all that time go? I honestly don't feel that old. People keep asking me if I got all depressed when I hit 30 or if I'm sad I'm not in my 20s anymore. I have to answer that with a wholehearted "NO!" I've enjoyed my life up to now, but my 20s included some really rocky periods and I capped off that decade by nearly getting a heart transplant. My 30th birthday was a celebration because I was just leveling off and maintaining my health from my heart condition. But even aside from that, I have to say that my life just keeps getting better every year. I'm married to a wonderful man, we own our own house which I adore, I'm surrounded by Beagle 1 and Beagle 2, and I've got my daughter on her way. Really, what more could I ask for? Bye bye 20s! Bring those 30s on!

I had no idea it was your birthday today! Happiest of birthdays to you!! (Don't worry, J. will be your age next month and he doesn't feel that old either. It's all a frame of mind.) :-)

Try looking into the crosshairs of 40!

Enjoy your special day!

You cannot be that old! I only say that because of what that makes me (and Grandpa Rosiak). Other than that, you are my favorate child (don't tell your brother)and I really appreciate having you for a daughter.
Love Pop

Happy Birthday Shelby!
We are getting a bit old. I was asked the other day if I was my friend's mother (she's only 2 years younger than me, so it was quite a shock).
And you have a baby coming? Much excitement for you in the 30's!

Happy Belated Birthday from a reader in Hamburg. Coincidentally, it was my birthday, too. I just turned 30!

Sure, I go away for a couple of days, and you suddenly drop several posts and have a birthday pass under my radar... :)

Happy (quite belated) birthday!
