Today I am 50

On this day, 50 years ago, a 5’3″ woman was trying to push a 9-1/2 lb baby through the birth canal only to end up having a c-section.  Sorry if that was TMI, but that is how I came into this world.    Fifty years later, I’m still toting around some of that baby fat.  As I woke up this morning, I was wondering if I was going to feel any different; just the usual aches and pains, like any other morning but I was breathing and alive so off to work I go.

I had a lovely greeting this morning on my office door; an old Magnum PI picture of Tom Selleck.  It was a great way to start off the day.  This years celebration is much more low key than it was 10 years ago for my 40th.   And I’m okay with that.   A year ago at this time, I started this blog.  I can’t believe a year has gone by so fast.  I was planning for my trip and making up birthday and Christmas lists with items I would need for my trip.  Little did I know that less than 2 months later, I would be diagnosed with cancer.  Now that has come and gone, I’m here, alive and kicking and able to talk about it.  Just a little bump in the road.

As I begin the second half of this journey, one thing  I have to look forward to is a  colonoscopy  in the coming year 😦 but also the chance to look into trying some new adventures and opportunities.  I don’t know what the future has in store, but that’s what makes it exciting.

Happy Birthday to Me!
