It's fitting that my 41st birthday falls on a Tuesday.
I was thinking about my birthday earlier today, wondering what is so fun about 41. It doesn't have the excitement of 40. This decade is still young, but not really new any more. It's like a Tuesday. There isn't much to be excited about on a Tuesday. It doesn't have the newness of Monday or the excitement of Friday. It's just another day of the week.
And 41 is just another step closer to 50.
But it is a step that I happily take, because every birthday is a reason to celebrate. I may not get any black "over the hill" balloons, but I will get cake!
Also, it just so happens that today is the release day for Sharon Creech's new book, MOO. So there's that.
