I realized that it’s been since February that I wrote something. It’s been a bit crazy around my neck of the woods. I had a deadline (when don’t I?) and my youngest son needed surgery. He’s 8 and he had a hernia. He just had his surgery in May and is on the mend.
And in April, I turned a big milestone and hit FORTY. I don’t know why I was dreading this so much. It’s been a month since I turned 40 and I feel good actually.
Still, as it was approaching I got a bit bummed out. And the weather in Canada didn’t help. That winter held on for a long, long, long time. So, to cheer me up and celebrate my 40th the DH & I decided to go to Disney World for my 40th so I could hit that milestone with Mickey.
I love Disney World. I went when I was 14, on my honeymoon and a couple years ago we took the kids for the first time. The first time we took the kids my youngest couldn’t ride many rides (he’s on the shorter side even though my husband and I are super tall). This time around he got to ride Space Mountain and you can see this picture is worth the whole trip!
So this trip was my 4th time and my first time celebrating my birthday there.
ALSO we decided to go to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios. I had never been to Universal Studios before and I love, love Harry Potter. OMG it was amazing! Although, my DH gets bad motion sickness on virtual reality rides and I hate rollercoasters. Sadly the Escape from Gringotts was a virtual reality with a rollercoaster. I had to go on with the kids. I thought I was going to die a few times and my kids just laughed at me. They think it’s hilarious.
Meanies! Oh and the wands my kids are holding are TWO Elder Wands (the boys of course wanted the most powerful wands in the world) and Malfoy’s wand. My daughter wanted Malfoy’s wand. I chose Harry’s.
While in Florida, I got to see my critique partner of many years again. She used to live in my town and then moved away. *sob* She also just sold to Medicals. So I was so happy to see Ann McIntosh again and bring her Red Rose Tea as they don’t have Red Rose Tea in the States.
She wasn’t the only one I got to meet. I got to meet Laurie! A long time medical reader and the sweetest person EVER. I brought her a bunch of treats too. It involved a lot of maple syrup.
It was a great 40th. And yes, I let the kids dress me up like that because I’m a good Mom or just a sucker.
Honestly, I don’t know what I was so worried about by turning 40. I’m pretty dang lucky and it felt a bit freeing to hit that milestone! Mostly, because I realized I don’t really care about stuff I worried about when I was in my twenties or thirties. I’ve come this far and I’m enjoying myself!
