They say it's your birthday

(and are these not beautiful, courtesy of my SIL who went all out over T-giving)

It's my birthday too, yeah.


So today's the day, and all of Canada is so excited, hopefully they'll go out and vote!

What's on today's agenda? Well, I started out with half and half cream in my coffee instead of 1% milk, I have to do a little work, run a few errands, vote ... but I will treat myself by checking out a newly renovated mall. Sans kids.

Thank goodness for life's little pleasures.

The last few years of birthdays, it hasn't been more than just another day really, another few pounds after a feast with family. This is the problem with having a birthday around Thanksgiving.

Roast beef dinner on Saturday; steak dinner last night with my parents and sister's family; and special birthday dinner with the man tonight. No beef or duck for me, though, as apparently I don't want to be a quack (ancient Chinese rules).

Yes, I am missing my favourite gyrating workout night to go to my fave restaurant in our neck of the woods.

They say that before you hit 45, it is possible for a woman to get rid of an advancing gut with exercise. So thank goodness there are still a couple of years left where there is hope.

Hope starts tomorrow ;).

PS. I did something crazy - well for me - that I just may post in a couple of days. I have to wait until I'm good and drunk to share it though.

And you have got to dish on what you did. I won't sleep until you do. Hopefully the wine was flowing at dinner with hubby and you will come home and share.


I love that, hope starts tomorrow! I have a good 11 years then...procrastination!

Jocelyn said...

I want to read about your crazy.

Happy birthday, Dear Advancing Gut But Not Yet. I was born with a gut, so maybe it'll start to diminish after 45?

BusyDad said...

Oh, did you say you need help getting good and drunk? I actually freelance in that. You can even pay me in drinks. HAPPY B-DAY KMEG!

Ack! You mean, after 45 the gut sticks? Crap. I'm 43 in December, which means not much time left.

What's wrong with being a quack? ;)

Happy (belated) birthday. Hope your dinner was LOVELY.

Badness Jones said...

Alright you - dish! Go get yourself a pomtini and tell us about the crazy.

Happy Birthday!!!!

Happy Birthday!

I laughed when I read the word "Meh". I dated a guy in Canada that would say that all the time. He even had a T-shirt that said "Meh". :)
