My Theory on Birthdays

Why do I schedule my posts to publish at 4:22 a.m.? All together now:

Because April 22 is my birthday!

Very good. And here's my theory on birthdays and other important issues. If something matters to you, don't expect/hope/worry that people will realize that and come through for you. Even people who love you cannot always read your mind. (And isn't that fortunate?)

Birthdays matter to me. Thanks for being part of my celebration!

P.S. A lady never tells her age. I'm 55. Ugh. Celebration aside, that looks relatively hideous in print. At some point, I may have to claim middle-age. But not yet. Not yet.

Let me be the first (at least here) to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAN! I hope the day is as awesome and wonderful as you! :-)

Happy birthday Jan! Here's an assignment for you - get out that box of crayons and do some coloring today, or go chalk a sidewalk, or just watch some Tom & Jerry cartoons. Whatever makes you feel like a kid. Oh, and eat a big piece of cake!

What a wonderful day to celebrate a wonderful friend! And for some of us --55 is very young! I hope the day is as special as you are!

love & blessings

Happy BDAY Jan!! You are a great role model for how cool, hip and fun we 50-something chicks can be. You get better every year!

That sound you hear is me singing Happy Birthday to You. Either that, or the tornado sirens have gone off.

Have some cake for me.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday, Jan!

I already said Happy Birthday, but as to your comment on age, 55 is just a speed Sammy Hagar can't drive.

Thank you all! It was an absolutely wonderful day! The start of a fun year ...
