sleepless in st. p

I have a feeling I'm not going to sleep tonight.

How much caffeine is in m&m's? Made chocolate chip cookies(but with m&m's since we have those and we don't have chocolate chips) for my class for tomorrow
[yeah--birthday. Whatever. I've got other things on my mind. And, my class keeps a daily running total of all the people I'm younger than, so 40 isn't that big of a deal. And I like the Russian word for 40. And I'm ready to end the decade-of-waiting that was my 30's.]
and nibbled more than a few m&m's.

Feel a little sick, actually.

Happy 40th, Mama Kate! I know what you mean about being ready to put your 30s behind you. Most of mine were fine, but I don't need to go back. And the year from 39-40...I wouldn't wish on anybody. 40 turned things around in many ways.

I wanna cookie! Good thing they're so far away and I can't, since I'm really trying to lose weight!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GMK!!!
Only 40th??? Why you're just a baby yourself! Call me when you're pushin' the big 50---that's as long as my hearing holds up and my dementia is not that bad!!!!

OF
P.S. love the sneak peeks of your baby AND YEOW you were not kidding about the haircut!!!!

You sooo don't look 40! Really you don't!!

I get the whole cleansing thing about a new decade. This is your most fabulous one yet!

1 CUP of M&Ms has 29 mg of caffeine (if my sources are correct.) Which, is about 1/2 can of diet coke. You didn't eat a whole CUP of M&M's did you?

Sleep well, b'day girl! And my congratulations to you! (That Russian phase cracks me up. It just strikes me as odd to be congratulated on a birthday. Derrick had his birthday the day after court and everyone said all day long, "AH, my congratulations to you!")

Happy Birthday to you, Kate! May the coming year and the years to come be filled with the joys of motherhood and the sound of your daughter's laughter. :-)

Now that I am just past 40 - I'll tell you that it's over rated. Actually, my husband forgot my 40th, sorta...

I would say the best birthday you could have is coming...get all dressed up and take that precious little girl with you shoe shopping, and then go to some fab cafe for lunch. that is what I am planning on doing - even if I'm not 40 anymore when we get her home...I will still be celebrating my 40th with her...in just that exact way.

Happy Birthday to you Sleepless in St Petersburg, from Seattle! :) Where I should be sleeping but instead reading blogs about others who are that much closer to thier daughter then I am! I have eat cookies, until I am sick, too. Be well on this last birthday without your little one under your roof and care! 40 is going to be the BEST year ever!

Happy birthday - but, oooo, ick! I hate that "too much candy" feeling.

Tami said...

Happy Birthday! Hope you were able to get some Zzzzzzz's. ;>)

Happy Birthday! I just hit that number as well, and mostly am trying to ignore it. Except for the "to me- from me- with love" handbag.
