This is 52

me 11-20-15

Today I turned 52, Happy Birthday to me!

It was a great day spent with my husband and daughters.  They treated me to a breakfast made at home fit for a queen as well as gifts.  Today we enjoyed just us, just the 4 of us as we trekked into San Francisco. Spending the foggy day walking through Crissy Field to the Gold Gate, stopping and enjoying the sights and sounds together.  Ending our city trip with lunch at a favorite neighborhood place from when just the two of us lived in the city before we were married.

I am in my mid-life they say.  I take pills daily to get me through the symptoms of menopause including estrogen and progesterone along with herbs. Insomnia comes to visit more regularly than I’d like and my knees and ankles creak and crack on occasion. I choose to color my hair since I started turning grey in my early 20s.  I am told I do not look my age and am pleased on the occasion I am asked for my ID as proof of my age when buying liquor or wine. I am finally comfortable with my figure.  It is not the one I had at 30 but it is the one I have now.  I am now gluten-free which has helped relieve migraines and IBS with D symptoms.  I have started a walking regime that is giving me stamina to keep up with my daughters who are 9 and 7 years old.

This year I started back to work very part-time at our daughters’ school as a noon supervisor.  I plan to get a more full-time job at a local school to us in their office as an admin or clerical.

I am blessed with a circle of friends and family that bring the laughter and joy to my life each and every day as well as supporting each other through trying times.

My life is blessed and I look forward to what this next year has in store for me!

  1. Sound like your family treat you well on your birthday. Being middle age does have it advantage. We had quite a few life lesson on the way.
    Anyhow I like the bay area. I have a sister in law who has a place in Sausalito.
    I came over from NaBloPoMo if you have the time stop on in for some coffee.
