I’ve been having the same conversation lately with multiple people, it seems…
Person: What’re you doing for your 40th birthday this year?
Me: Not much. Playing with the same toys I was playing with when I was 39…
You know…my spindle, my photo printers, my scrapbooking stuff, etc. That’s kind of it. I suspect my next birthday I’ll be doing the same thing. Only…
I might be missing my father-in-law a bit more since he left us this year.
I might also be missing Boy Child a little more now that he’s at school in Georgia.
I’ll probably will be hugely grateful that there’s a little space between him and his high school sweetheart of this past year.
What can I say? I’m a pretty typical mom.
I could be more deeply involved with a sweetheart of my own.
I might be even a bit more confident having been in my home over a year.
And learning to cook healthier foods with my food processor.
Ok, so some are not so healthy. 😉
I will certainly have collected a few more memories.
I will have made a few things for friends and family.
…and maybe a few more great quotes to live by too like this one here.
This one is a good one too.
And I’ll probably still be finding ways to sneak some craftiness into my life here and there like #saturdaynightspinning.
But, I guess we’ll see about all that next year.
