Well, it's another birthday for me!

I can't believe how fast time goes by. I remember my 30th birthday. That was a tough one for me. I was a bit depressed for quite some time about that birthday. I knew how fast life went from 25 to 30 and I was quite sure that when I turned 30, that 40 was not far behind. Well, turns out I was right. I hit 39 today and now I am one day closer to 40. Only 364 days and I will be the big "FOUR O". Mmmhhh...guess I better start preparing for that so when it comes, I will hopefully manage it in stride.

I found myself thinking recently that I should start a journal, or diary of sort. There are so many thoughts that I have...and keep...that I think my children might one day like to read and gain more insight into me and what I think and feel. You never know how much time we have on this earth and if I were to leave this earth, there is so much I would like to say and have people know. Maybe I will start journaling. The only thing that stops me is that I don't always know where to start. Do I start with today or do I jump back in time. I will think about this more and figure out what would work best.

Isn't it strange, I really didn't cope with 30 either!
Happy 39th Birthday Carrie, I hope the new house is getting closer for you.

Jovanna looks like she is doing well with the make-up, she is such a beautiful girl and I have to admit I love the idea of the signs. I have my fingers crossed that they work for you

happy birthday, Carrie! and I hope you have many, many more!

start journaling with today, you may find there are days when you journaling about the past, and that's okay, too. I think it's a great idea.

Happy Birthday Carrie. Remember you are only as old as you feel and I refuse to think of myself any older than 30.

Have a great day and do something special for yourself.

Happy belated birthday Carrie! Some days I get a little freaked out about my age. I don't show it, but on the inside I wonder if I'm starting to go through some "mid-life" crisis. I'm not even 39 yet!

I feel the same way about wanting my kids to know me better. I'm just not very good at getting my thoughts down on paper. Perhaps I'll just have to force myself to start. Maybe it gets easier once you start? I think you should go for it. Perhaps incorporate in into a scrapbook about yourself.

Hope you had a wonderful birthday!
