never give up, that's right! and i love the positive look on things! i turned 39 this summer and were we on vacation, so i just sat on the beach...that was awesome! i never thought i'd still be parenting an infant at this stage, but i so love it! and, i guess my addition to your list...i will be 'older and wiser' than the other parents!

You have 'Finish French Course' on the list twice. What a neat idea, but I'm creeping up on 44... I'm not sure there's a lot of things I'm willing to do 44 times.

Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day.

The list of 38 is a great idea. I think that's probably a good way of harnessing your energy about the birthday. Happy birthday and all the best with it!

Oh - why did you have to remind me as well? I only have a few days left to go before reaching the same age... Maybe I should adopt your idea with things to do ?!

belated happy birthday! you have an amazing list of things to do and I hope you will really be able to accomplish everything. I noticed you put in "finish French lessons" twice, was that intentional?

inggit ako kasi gusto ko rin sana matuto ng French.

thanks pala for visiting HotMomma. please come back more often.

thanks!
