The tent went up, the grill got cleaned, the kebabs and potato salad and munchies got bought, the house got cleaned, the salad got chopped and tossed and the drinks were put out. At 5:30 p.m. our first guests arrived and at midnight., when the last ones left, I realized for the final time that turning 40 ain't so bad after all, when you're surrounded by friendship, laughter, family, happiness and love. This has been a good birthday, for all my fretting.
The nifty presents didn't hurt either. :) What a great night!
