Turning 47....

Today's my birthday and though being in the last third of the forties feels a little sad to me, I woke up and two facts brought a smile to my lips:

Barack Obama is also 47 and everyone says he's young. :)

My "skinny jeans" (Levi 501's) that I've had on a shelf for the last five years fit me this morning! All that canvassing paid off in more than a win for Obama.

So I can now say: 47 rocks! (Oh, and Jo(e) and Dave are also 47, and they are both waaaay cool! Anyone else?)

Well, I'm not as cool as you. But, I am 47 for six more months.

I've got another week or so... I remember a year or so ago thinking it odd that the next president might actually being younger than me. There's a thought to get the midlife angst working, now isn't it?

Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday Julie,

This must be an exciting birthday for you with the recent election results and all. Have a great day...

The forties are good. Great, in fact. But wait till the fifties. Then the good times really start to roll.

I came to your blog from DCF (there is a new thread listing members' blogs) and just wanted to say that we share the same birthday. I turned 51. I lurked for months on the Election thread (I am an American living in Europe) and always enjoyed your posts.
