41st birthday

May 31st, 2010 by Rose DesRochers · 14 Comments

My birthday was last Friday. (May 28th) Happy Birthday to me. I turned 41. I’m the same age as “Jennifer Aniston.” I just don’t look as good.

We had dinner at the family restaurant that we celebrate every family event at then we dropped by my husband’s uncle’s house for drinks. Then I came home, watched “Dear John” and went to bed.

I wasn’t as excited about my birthday as my daughter was. “laugh”

I don’t know! I think as you get older, birthdays aren’t such a big deal anymore.

Still I do think it is important to acknowledge the day and spend it with family. That’s what I did and I was spoiled.

Do you celebrate your birthday? Do you get excited about the day?

    Ah, the same birthday as one of my co-workers, an old girlfriend, and the lead singer of Fine Young Cannibals, Roland Gift. Happy birthday; you don’t look a day past 35.

    “I wasn’t as excited about my birthday as my daughter was.”

    One of the many perks of having kids. They always think our birthdays are special. Not exactly sure if it’s OUR birthday that is special, or the fun thing they know they will be a part of that is special. Either way, fun stuff!

    Happy birthday, btw! 🙂

    I turned 65 on 5/10. It was raining so my daughter couldn’t come because of her illness. I spent the day alone. Poor Me 🙁

    Happy birthday, Rose.
    I remember turning 40 and that wasn’t too big of a deal. I’m a little anxious about 50 but as for the years in between, I don’t really celebrate anymore aside from treating myself to something; a sleep-in, a nice meal or new blouse. Spending it alone is a drag, so glad to hear you got out and about with your family.
