Leap Day--6 months until I feel really OLD

Happy Leap Day Y'all!!!

I think it's kind of a special day because I finally get to have a "half-birthday". See, my birthday is August 29th (hint, buy me something shiny and pretty mkay?), so I only get to have a half birthday every 4 years.

Now some of you might say--why in the hell do you care, but people, when you have a 6 year old child quarter-birthdays, half-birthdays, 3/4 birthdays--they are ALL important shit. I was talking to dear 6yo and she asked when I was going to have my half birthday and it turned into this whole discussion of leap year and earthly rotation and all sorts of crap--and in the end all she said was that she was sorry I didn't get a half birthday EVERY year. Awwwww

Which brings me to another life changing topic: I ONLY HAVE SIX MORE MONTHS UNTIL I AM 40!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH Oh the horror overwhelms me. Turning 30 didn't bother me--25 did for some reason, but 30--just another excuse to party. 40 however is proving one that is hard to wrap my head around. 40 freaking years old!!!! Ugh.

I need a drink.

Happy Belated Half Birthday!

I turned 40 back in October. And for all my obsessing over it, when it finally got here, it really wasn't too much different than being 39. I color my hair more because I started seeing way too many gray hairs, but other than that, not too bad! You'll be fine! I promise!
