Summer Reading

I finished reading Shanghai Girls by Lisa See - it was very good. I liked Snow Flower and the Secret Fan better but this was still a great read. I have now started reading The Choice by Nicholas Sparks - a light read but enjoyable. I think I will reach my goal of 10 books by the end of the summer!

Thoughts on turning 42...

• not really a good time to ask because I still feel crappy, thus old!

• I have a really great life and am very lucky

• my husband loves me - I love that he was worried about leaving for the week because I was sick and that he asked my friend to look out for me

• I am spoiled when it comes to gifts on my birthday (and Christmas too!)

• 13 years of marriage - it hasn't all been rosy but I wouldn't change anything

• I was 19 when my mom was 42 - my kids are 9 and 2

• my body is starting to "feel 42" - I need to take better care of it

• getting married on my birthday hasn't turned out so bad (I really didn't want to do it but I didn't want to wait to get married either) - Aaron always makes it more about my birthday

• I really want to work on personal goals for the next year - my life is good and I want to feel more like I deserve this good life
