Boos! And Yays!: Midlife Crisis Edition

Celebrating Birthday Week next week! Yay! But OMG, 44! That's ridiculous! BOOOOOOOOOOO!

(Yes, Birthday Week because one day, insufficient. Plus, I'll be celebrating at a slower pace given my advancing years.)

I think 44 might be Midlife Crisis time, because seriously this one is getting under my skin. Maybe because it's too close to MID 40s. Gulp. Boo! But on the upside, could that be a valid excuse for bad behaviour, right?! Age inappropriate clothing and toy boys, just for starters. Yay!

Actually, although 44 is seriously giving me pause for thought, I'm probably the happiest and most settled right now that I have been in the past year or two (especially since getting my sleep problems under control) Yay! But OMG, I need to lose like 5kgs stat! Boo!

Happy almost birthday! 44 doesn't sound too bad. I always prefer even numbered years to odd ones. :)

Happy, early birthday to you! Look on the bright side, you could have just turned 47, like moi! Enjoy your week.

Well, you know *I* like you just the way you are. And 44 is a nice regular number.

Happy Birthday!, 44 ain't so bad at all! I just turned 42 myself and am literally twice as happy as I was at 21!

Happy Birthday Andrew! I hope you have at least week of celebrations.

I'm sure 44 can still be referred to as very late thirties, if need be.

Happy birthday! I'm 46 so wouldn't mind being 44 again.

Happy birthday Andrew. It will be so great to catch up with you when I return. I haven't ever been homesick, but I do miss everyone. Oh, and when DO you turn 50? James :) xxx
