today is my 38th birthday.
yep, it is true.
at 38 i am the same as i was yesterday at 37.
not wiser, not thinner, not smarter.
still a bit pudgy around the middle with greying temples and laugh lines.
this is a great age.
a wonderful age.
an age in which i can do many things...like touch my toes, bake bread from scratch, complete multiple pushups & jumping jacks, train a dog, hike a mountain, send a text message and so on.
you get the idea.
today was a strange birthday.
a day just like any other except i was low on groceries and wanted to sleep in.
the day started with birthday card love (madly made at the kitchen table at 7:45 am) and the promise of a spa massage.
followed by soccer mom duties, a quick run for milk & bread, a visit from my mil (and the chance to pamper myself with a mani/pedi), "barn-raising" with my favorite sil/bil & fam, and followed by a shared meal of sushi.
a good day.
a regular day.
hello 38...let's have a year of adventure.
