Happy Birthday to ME!

Jane at 16
Well folks, it's that time again....I can't believe I'm turning 40 years old today. I don't know if I should be freaked out or happy. Naw, I know I'm happy. I was doing some retrospective thinking last night (probably TOTALLY not the right word for what I was doing, but I can't think of the right one right now) and I can honestly say that I'm happy at this point in my life. There are a lot of people in my life who care about me (you all know who you are!) and that's what is most important. Although my morning started off rough (teenagers are so trying at times!!) this day is looking better and better all the time. It's only 11:00 in the morning and I've already gotten so many texts, emails, Myspace messages, etc. wishing me a happy birthday. Tonight is a "date night" with my son--dinner at whatever restaurant I choose, then we're off to see a movie. I'm sure I'll end my birthday talking on the phone to the person who loves me the most.
Then two weeks from now, I get to see all of my family. Well not ALL of my family, but my mom, dad, my sister & all of her family. It's been years (seriously, like 20?) since my mom & dad were in the same place together for some kind of event. I really think the last time was my brother's wedding. So this will be a real gift to visit with both of them at the same time. I think going to West Virginia to get some "down time" in will do me a lot of good. It's been a rough 7 months or so and this will get me centered again.
I feel like I should be ending this post with something really philosophical....but I got nothin'....
