This morning came all too early for me and surviving my birthday weekend went very fast. My husband thought it would be funny the day before my birthday to make me think that nobody was getting me a birthday cake and he didn’t have any money to get me anything and that everyone was too busy to come over to celebrate. So after being upset all night thinking that nobody loved me, he greets me at the bathroom door the next morning with a new watch and says that he was just kidding. He KNOWS that I get extra emotional around my birthday and he uses this to entertain himself. Note to self: Husband’s birthday coming up in May-no presents for him.
So, I am now officially in the 40’s. I didn’t count last year because when you turn 40, you are just hitting the 40’s and not in full swing yet-that’s my philosophy and I’m sticking to it. My husband also thinks it’s funny to call me old but then I tell him that if I’m old then he’s got one foot in the grave and that I will miss him while I’m vacationing in Hawaii on his insurance policy.
I’m not sure if everyone does this when they have a birthday, but whenever I turn another year older, I reflect on my life and my accomplishments and make new goals of where I want to be when I get older. My main goal that has never changed has been my desire to write books. I am one step closer for my next book to be published and I’m hoping to reach a wide audience this time. Then, I will hopefully go on to writing my next idea which will be a four book series named, The Coconut Hut Club. These books will be about four women that decide to form a club (named after the bar that they hang out at ) since they seem to “find trouble” all the time. Kind of like a ‘Chick Lit’ type of novels with humor and suspense thrown together.
So, bare with me and my whining and hopefully here soon I’ll be writing a post that says, Ok, you can now buy my book here…
