What was the question?

My birthday was this week. I am 42, which seems auspicious, both because I am now the answer to life, the universe, and everything, and because Rule 42 is The Queen Always Wins.

Sure, I’d like to be more accomplished, more financially secure, brighter, thinner, and more charming. But right now, I feel not only content, but blessed. Brent loves me. The kids are smart and funny and mostly fun to be around. My friends are awesome. I have work that stretches and challenges me (although sometimes it might be a little TOO challenging). Health-wise, I’m doing fine, caffeine free for the last week or so, and newly equipped with a bike to increase my exercise and decrease my stress. I have a helmet to go with my bike and I’ve been lectured by my mom, my husband, and my kid on the importance of wearing it, so I’ll probably even survive.

It’s all particularly awesome considering how far I’ve come. When I turned 35, my world pretty much collapsed. To be where I am now is quite a gift. I am thankful.

Now I’ll go back to my usual snarky self…
