My birthday has come and gone.  And let me say, it was perfect.

I was with people closest to me (on this coast) and I heard from everyone I love dearly.

I think most importantly, I got to be me.  Just me.  No kids.  No husband.  Just fun and laughter and dancing.  Yes, there was dancing.  And it felt good.

During the past 6 months, it has been easy at times to feel out of it.  Not like me; not like anyone really.  But, I'm figuring out what I want.  What matters and how I feel about things.

Oh, and I'm not really dealing with the bullshit anymore.  So, that feels like freedom.

And freedom looks good on me ;-)

This weekend has been a busy one.  The kind of weekend that makes me just want to sleep all day today, Sunday, which is totally not possible.

Friday night we went to the play at the girls' school.  It was SO good, but also super long.  Then, yesterday we were in a commercial.  Super random how it all came about but it was a long day, and very fun.  Maddie received her first paycheck (yes, it's made out to me, but I'm cashing it for her).  She plans to buy a fish tank and a fish to keep in her room.  I'm happy to hear this, because when she first realized she was going to get $150, she claimed she would be using the money to buy "100 packs of gum!"  Hilarious and a very second grade thing to want to buy.  

Tomorrow is the start of another week.  And at the end of that week, I will be 37.  Cannot believe that age is here.  So much has changed in this year of being 36.  It's actually pretty hard to picture last year's birthday..... But, life moves on and so did I.  Excited to celebrate next weekend :)
