Well, I made it another year. And, according to the latest statistics, I’ve hurdled the halfway mark of average life expectancy for US woman (and we all know I’m nothing if not average.)
I had a very nice birthday weekend that included lunch with co-workers, an animation-free movie with Jack, a supper picnic with Jack and the kids, a visit from my parents and lots of time to relax. I read two books and finished a cross-stitch project I’ve been working on for years.
Thanks very much to all who called, texted and messaged me. Being remembered is a great birthday gift! Ogden Nash says, “Senescence begins and middle age ends the day your descendents outnumber your friends.” By that definition old age ain’t got me yet!
