It Happened

I turned 40 the other day and the world didn't go rumbling off it's axis, dinosaurs didn't regenerate and the sun came up again.

So it's all good. I'm glad it's is over to be honest and I can get back to being just me.

Okay, I do have my family coming tomorrow for dinner and then Bob's family the next day but then I can check 'done' beside 'turning 40'.

I got a video camera (have these changed names? There is no tape in them but without the video it would just be digital camera which means stills) because :


She's also engaged to be married sometime after that but whatever, let's deal with the baby first.

For me it's a big deal although the rest of the family seems to be taking the whole thing hard. GC has Type 1 diabetes so there are concerns for sure and she's in high-risk management of the pregnancy so we're all praying hard. I think it's the fiance people are having a hard time with and I get it, but I won't steal the joy from GC. It's her life and who are we to judge.

So, it's the first baby as I don't have any and Billy didn't either. I'm excited about future Christmas' and holidays because there will be somebody there who will think it's all new and shiny.

And hey, we all need a little new and shiny in our lives.

Other than that bombshell things are going well.

I just finished Demon from the Dark by Kresley Cole and have written a partial review that I will post over the next few days. I want to dig out the newest Anne Stuart but I want to save it at the same time. So I'm flailing about what to read next but I'm thinking I need to hunt down the 3 Cole stories I haven't read but are in the TBR pile.

Okay, off to bed for me!

Happy belated birthday, Cindy!! :) Tell me it isn't so bad!

LOL, it's still called a video camera :)

and congrats to your Gorgeous Cousin!! That is awesome news and I'm sure everything will be fine :)

Okay, I'm curious though, so I hope you don't mind me asking... who's the father? Is it her old boyfriend you were talking about earlier that kind of cheated on her on FB? Or did she meet someone new?

Looking forward to your review :)

Thanks JMC!

Nath - yep, it's him which is why there is a bit of a bitter pill. I can't live her life so if she loves him then so be it. Bob's had a hard time with it and I know the family is struggling but I'm concentrating on GC - she deserves to be happy about the baby and her engagement no matter how I might feel about the guy. So I'm praying everything works out right.

Awww, Cindy! I understand why it's a bitter pill. However, if she's happy, that what matters the most :) and she has you and Bob and the whole family behind her to support her :)
