In which I am utterly depressed

It's my birthday today. I'm 40. I'm not enjoying it one little bit. I will be doing some serious navel-gazing later, so be warned.

The day I turned 40 I was 9 months pregnant and on modified bedrest. At least you're up and about! (How's that for looking for the silver lining?)

I will wish you a happy day despite your gloom, and tell you that my forties (with the exception of last year) have been pretty cool. I hope that yours are just the beginning of a wonderful time for you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JULIA!!!

You have so much to be proud of. Hold your head high today and leave your navel alone.

Well, nonetheless the blogging community is here to wish you a happy birthday so surely that must count for something? Yeah, trust me, it does.

Happy birthday!!

Forty Schmorty. It's just a number. It's more who you are and how you use the years you are than the actual number of years.

And if the last two days, and the help you've extended to me over the last week are any indication, you're using your years in a very generous manner, you lovely lady. So get out of your navel. I want to hug you, and that's hard to do if you're all curled up.

Happy Birthday to a quintessential still-waters-run-deep Scorpio.
Hope you enjoyed every last one of those birthday treats!
May the coming year be good to you.
(I still say the 30th was the hardest.)

That better be some self-appreciative, god-damn I rock this world navel gazing, or else I am jumping in my car and driving to MA to kick your ass.

Happy Birthday, to a beautiful, smart, funny woman and a great friend.

You're as young as you want to be! It's all a matter of attitude.

Have a Happy Birthday!

I turned 40 in the hospital and still managed to throw myself a party. Get out there and have some fun!

How can you hear us yelling Happy Birthday if you're trying to see if there's any lint down there?

You rock, J. I'm proud to call you my friend.

Happy Birthday Julia! Get your head out of your belly button and enjoy your day :)

40 is just a number. (remember this speech for me when I turn 40, ok??)

You rock - plain and simple :)

Forty?! WhooHoo! Live it up as much as that little one will let you.

Happy birthday, lady. (You share a birthday with WonderBaby. Or she with you. Either way - happy day!)

Chris said...

Crap i feel crappy for saying belated happy birthday. But happy birthday anyhow i hope this late birthday wish finds you.
Send a pic of you navel so we can gaze together.;) I like to pretend mine is doing hurdles from time to time.
