Last Friday, the siblings in my family all entered the same decade. As I trail in at one end, Kathy will exit from the other end next year.
As a kid, at every birthday, someone invariably asks "do you feel any different?" I can honestly say that yes 40 feels different than 39. Within the last month or so, I have discovered arthiritis in both knees and my left hip. I have also got a burning pain in my shoulder for about about two weeks now, that I will be seeing the doctor about next week. I am OLD!
For the birthday itself, it was great. A fun family dinner, with old friends joining in. Then back to the house to play Wii! Yep, That was my birthday present to me. I love it.
p.s. The shoulder pain came before the Wii.
Thank you great grandpa!!
