Well, it's official. I'm old now. No longer in my 30s, I'm officially a member of the 40 year old club.
I had a lovely birthday though. Even though I was on the mend from a whiplash bout of the flu, we were able to head out to Guelph for the morning and visit the College Royal open house and throw some fireballs and do science, so that was fun.
Afterwards, we went to Burgers Priest for lunch and then came home for my party. We had a few friends over and we played Telestrations and then a bunch of JackBox Party Pack 2 games. Much laughter was had and everyone left with a smile on their face. I may not be a wild partier (and I was definitely not up to my usual super goofy levels that night) but I had a fun time and it seemed most other people did too.
Of course, in keeping with my hitting a milestone, I had one of my teeth break at midnight on the night of my birthday (thankfully it was a molar that had already been deteriorating over the past few years following a root canal and it is more annoying than painful) so that was a hoot.
And my daughter, bless her heart, gave me a creepy homemade card with the following lines.
"Feel that? It's you. You're old now."
Thanks to everyone who sent me a birthday wish and hopefully I'll lose less body parts between now and 41 :)
