So, I'm 40...

Yupeers, I'm 40 now.  Ok.  Now What?  

I've been silent this week because I figured something, anything was supposed to happen.  

It didn't.  Honestly, I think I was a little disappointed.  

I still am but if this year hasn't taught me anything it has taught me to be faithful and trust in the Lord.  Each day I am praying and saying "Let your will be done" and you know what?  It is. I'm feeling better and while I still have a way to go I just feel better and I do see my life changing for the good.  Hey, my way certainly hasn't worked so... lol  

Sorry, I digress...

My birthday came and went with no hoopla.  No party.  No trip.  No nada mucho.  You see, I'm adopting and looking for a new job so there isn't a whole lot of extra money for these things.  I plan to do something this year, but I was hoping my birthday would have been the time.  

The birthday was nice and peaceful though.  I'm thankful I wasn't stressed and pray I have left that ultimate stress in my 30s.  I bought new shoes (3 pairs and clothes)...thanks Mom and Bob. I got a beautiful new ceiling fan...thanks Bob.  I went to church first.  I have a new wonderful man in my life (I'll call him A).  We spent the day by the water in Baltimore walking hand in hand.  We ate great seafood and had gelato for dessert.  

For those that have asked me about A.  Yes, I met him online.  Yes, he is normal (today) LOL. We have been seeing each other about a month now almost daily.   He is a Christian.  Never married.  No kids.  Two dogs.  Employed.  Handsome.  Dimples.  Athletic.  Nice body.  39.  Very funny.  He gets me and I get him.  I adore him.  'Nuff said.  

There you have it.  Where I stand on being 40 today, June 12th.  



    I have been reading your blog for a while and I'm sorry I missed the occasion.

    Let me tell you a secret...

    On my 40th birthday, I stayed home, with my signinficant other and we enjoyed each other and went to dinner afterwards.

    After I cried for about a half hour that I was no longer in my 30's.

    I was straight after that! LOL!

    I am now 42 going on 43 in August and I am in the middle of planning my 45th birthday party. I never had one, so I want to give myself one and after that, I plan on going the next day to Italy. So I have to plan.

    The forties-- so far so good! :)

  2. oh yeah and my baby (bless his heart) says I'm cuter now than when I was younger. And that I still have my baby face. I don't know about all that, but I love him more for saying it! LOL!

  3. Sounds like the transition into 40 has been all good. I went on a meditation retreat and meditated my way into 40 LOL!! I wanted to make a quiet entrance :)

    A sounds wonderful. I wish you the very best this year and always.

    BTW, I could only think of you on Monday as I sat on my couch - tears running down my face. My head hurt so bad. I haven't had a migraine in a loooong time. Not fun.

  4. Tami - I'm happy for you about A! Excellent way to spend time while waiting for the baby. Who knows, maybe you WONT be on the singles "short list" for a baby after all. Romans 8:28 All things work together for good ... (I will post pics of the baby when I get back - I am just nervous to do it before I get her.) Ali

  5. Hey, I just read this after emailing you, so now I have the scoop on A. It sounds like you had a great 40th. Even more fanfare than mine, so don't feel down.

    Tami, you are in a great place entering this decade (despite not having a permanent job). New man, new hope, and best of all, pending motherhood. It's going to be a wonderful year for you, I just know it :-)

    Happy Birthday, my friend!!

  6. Happy belated birthday :)

    You've been tagged with a meme, if you would like to participate check here :)

  7. Happy belated. Sounds like you are rolling into the 40s in style. Keep being fabulous.

  8. Happy Belated. A new man - that sounds like a great start to a new decade.

  9. Hey Tami! Happy Birthday (belated) to you...
    This looks like a truly great blog. I am going to add it to my blogroll :)
