On Monday morning, I awoke to find even bigger bags under my eyes and four new grey hairs at the crown of my head.  I stared at my tired reflection in the mirror and thought, "Wow, is this REALLY what the next decade is gonna look like?"  Here I was all prepared to rock my forties like a champ, but the day sure wasn't getting off to a very good start.

My son had peed his bed, my daughter had spilled her milk, and Goatdog had scattered trash throughout the family room.  Happy freaking birthday to me!  What the hell happened to all the rainbows and sunshine I was expecting to greet me as I turned the corner into this next phase of my life??!!

Luckily, though, the day did a massive 180 after I dropped off the kids at school (funny how that happens, isn't it?)  A slew of good friends, pretty flowers and thoughtful gifts helped to turn my frustrated frown upside down.  And to cap it all off with my favorite trifecta -- wine, sushi, and dessert?  Well, that was just the icing on my red velvet cake!  Perhaps the next decade is gonna be the brightest one yet....


** Yes, they REALLY did put 40 candles in that little cake, and yes, I REALLY did almost catch my hair on fire trying to blow them out.
