February: A Crowded Month

Congratulate us! For the first time in history, the New Orleans Saints are Superbowl Champions! While I'm not a football fan, I'm really happy for the Saints and the City of New Orleans. On top of that we have Mardi Gras, and what else? Oh yeah, today's my birthday.

When you hit your forties, you're not exactly sure how to feel about birthdays. I'm back in school, working full time and still raising a family with all of the ups and downs that entails. The only thing I've come to realize is that I look at the beginning of each new year of my life with optimism and hope. It's always the hope that I've learned something from the past year so that I continue to celebrate the positive and try not to repeat the negative.

So, what's on the agenda today? I plan to go to the gym and workout, and I'm told that around three there's going to be a birthday celebration of some sort. I don't know what it is, but I'm going to leave obsessive compulsive Kevin behind today and enjoy whatever it is the family has planned.

Belated Happy Birthday! Celebrating the new year with hope and optimism is always a good way to start, yah? Well, where I come from, we just celebrated Chinese New Year yesterday, which happily coincided with Valentine's Day. So the year actually started with a lot of love! All the best to you this year! :)

Happy belated Birthday! How awesome that you are back in school. Congrats!! And yep, I too was super happy about the Saints. Even though we're Steelers fans over here -- we were just so very ecstatic for NOLA!! Found your blog via mombloggers. :)
