i'm not dead yet
Today I turn 41. The only two redeeming factors are that...... I'm not dead yet and that in 6 months my husband will turn 50 and I can once again go back to being his "much younger wife". My sweet hubby surprised me this morning with the sock wizard program already downloaded onto the computer for my birthday. He said I've turned into a sock guru and he thought the program would be a good one for me. I do have quite a collection of single socks around here right now. I'm trying to finish a pair for his father whose birthday was Sunday and then I intend to get back to finishing the other socks to end the single sock syndrome. So, here are some pictures of me as a young lad. There's one of me and my parents (notice me anxiously eyeing that cake. I still do that!). There's one of my just being my chubby-cheek baby self. There's one that confirms my long love of peanut butter (this is actually one of my favorite pictures of myself) and there's another picture that shows that my love of cats goes way way back.
I plan on having some brunch, going to see a movie, and then having supper with my family for my b-day. I have, of course, ordered a cake (chocolate with raspberry filling and ganache icing) for this evening and I intend to look at it and eat it with as much enthusiasm as I did when I was 4.
