Beethoven's Birthday "T" Minus One Day

For years I have celebrated Beethoven's birthday, a thinly disguised way of letting the world know December16th is the day I was born as well.

This year it's different. Why? Because it is a big birthday. To me, more than any other birthday, this is the one. Whoa, Baby! No other birthday has had such an effect. I laid awake and thought about why this is such a big deal. It is because I am starting a new decade. A decade I really don't want to be starting. I can feel this decade with a few more aches and pains. I feel like I am getting older, a little more vulnerable, a little less in control. I don't like it, not one little bit.

But, I guess I have no choice but to pull myself up by my big girl panties and deal with it. So hang on, I am going to be totally shameless and celebrate big time.

Look what a good friend of mine got me. HoHoHo! A gift certificate from Sprinkles Cupcake Bakery, that little charmer from Beverly Hills that all the stars sneak into when they don't think the paparazzi is watching. A store just opened in Scottsdale. My friend knows I generally don't get a birthday cake. What a treat this is!

Come on over ya' all and celebrate with me, I'll have some pretty fine cupcakes here!
