so it seems i've fallen behind on blogging again. i don't know where the last week went, but maybe i can use my birthday as an excuse.
many, many thanks to all my friends who celebrated with me, sent me goodies and comments and happiness! you are all priceless!
over the weekend i had an old girl friend from middle school visiting, and we had the bestest time. we only get to meet about 3 or 4 times each year (she lives 3 hours away) so we always have lots and lots to catch up on.
she's been working as a kindergarten educator for over 10 years and has been advancing her education all the time. after she felt she had gotten as far as she possibly could in her position, she is expanding her qualification by doing an advanced training course for family counseling right now.
her determination and ambition to grow and to expand her knowledge is so totally awesome and inspiring.
i feel i need to take a step forward in my life, too. there is so much i still want to do, that i want to learn. i think 41 sounds like a great age to start some new things in my life. i'll keep you updated!
tomorrow i'll be leaving for a 3 day trip to the netherlands with my bf - we'll stay on his parents' houseboat and enjoy the (hopefully) wonderful weather and the dutch goodies. so in case you miss me, i'll be back on thursday evening!
