I am officially fifty today, though I've thought of myself as such all year long. I've always looked ahead to the age I become at the end of the year. I joined the AARP already and I officially feel like a crone--in a good way. Oddly, I share this birthday with Britney Spears!

On Feministing, I discovered this wonderful group from Sweden:

Don't worry: fifty is the new forty!

We had a great time last night--some friends took us to dinner. Pics on Facebook.

Thank you! I got your package but the post office mangled it enough that the beads broke off the string. :( I hated to see your hard work ruined. If I send it back can you re-string them? It looked beautiful, all the colors are wonderful! Thank you so much! It even got here on my birthday!

:( SOrry they broke. Yeah, definitely. Send them back and I'll re-string them and make sure they're packed a little safer. :)

Thank you! I mostly had a good day--except that I fell in the shower while getting in and bruised my leg on the base of the shower door slider thingie. Ouch! But I went to dinner and had a good time and a few glasses of wine made me forget the pain. :)

Oh, btw, my goal is to replace the big expensive party I'd hoped to have with seeing my friends individually. Is there a time when you and your lovely wife can have some tea (ie something inexpensive) with me for an hour or so? I will drive over--gives me an excuse to go over the hill. Only days not good for me are Mon and Fri. I'd love to hear about your trip to my ancestral homeland. :)

We'd love to meet up, what time of day works for you? Tuesdays we generally have video game nights here at the house but usually we're free wednesday and thursday evenings, or we could meet in the afternoon possibly, I'd need to see if Christina could escape from work for a bit. We could meet at hoffmans downtown, not sure what they have in the way of teas (I'm not a huge Tea Drinker), but their hot chocolate is amazing.

Thursday evening would be great for me--hot chocolate sounds great!

Good job on your remodel! Sounds like an amazing project and I'm sure your co-workers love it. :)

does 5pm work? give me a buzz at 831-332-3591 and we'll plan on meeting you at hoffmans around 5

Cool, I'll get over the hill a bit early and do some shopping and give you a call.

Happy Birthday! What are you goals for the next year?
Tapatitapati on December 3rd, 2008 05:02 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

My goals are fairly simple: work hard in therapy, finish my book, and find an agent. Continuing my quest to reduce my migraines.

Just caught up on LJ, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TAPATI! Hope it was a great one. :)

Thanks, it was, mostly--except for the fall in the shower as I got ready to go to dinner. I was stepping in and slipped, came down on the thingie that holds the shower door on the bottom and have a lovely technicolor bruise on one leg. OUCH! But I had a few glasses of wine at the dinner and soon felt no pain--until it wore off. But I wasn't seriously damaged and we had a wonderful dinner. Now I'm scheduling time with my various friends throughout the month to continue the celebration.
