happy b-day to me

Yep, today’s my birthday. I’m counting on 41 being a LOT better than 40.

You know, I was thinking about these milestone birthdays, and they just don’t work out for me.

  • 10 – my cousin chose my birthday as her day to get christened - I was not the centre of attention for the most part of the day, which was devastating to a 10-year old;
  • 20 – my grandmother died and I was going through a “what am I doing in sciences” crisis at university – I mourned her for a long time and switched to Arts;
  • 30 – I separated from my first husband and got divorced a year later;
  • 40 – diagnosed with breast cancer and the following months endured a treatment cycle that truly defies a good description.

So, I’ve got 9 years till 50 and all that time to stop what appears to be a trend!!!!

I’ve had cake (and almost ate it too – too rich!!). And I’m going out to dinner (there’s a rule in my household, no-one cooks on their birthday). I’ve got no complaints.

  2. I’ve decided what will happen to you at 50. You shall win the lotto and we shall go on a nice holiday, maybe even back to Montreal or maybe to Paris. It will be faaaabulous dahlingk!
