Dashing into the new "40+ & xoxo" board

Cathy (a.k.a. cdrdash) here. This is my first foray into the new "Over 40 and loving it" board, but I have been all over other new boards so as my NZ friend would say "no worries." I have pretty much caught on to all the new bells and whistles.

I didn't have a real fun birthday -- spending it alone was not a good idea. Next year I will make an effort to invite friends to come out to dinner with me or something. I got a serious case of the lonelies at the end of the day that not even my on-line pals could dent. Oh well. Live and learn.

This weekend I'm off to someone else's birthday party Friday night (my NZ friend's big 30 birthday). Then on Saturday I'm backpacking (co-leading a trip for Gay and Lesbian Sierrans ... be about 5 of us on the trip) to Rose Peak in the Ohlone Wilderness, spending the night there and hiking out the next day. Knock on wood the weather looks like it is going to be great. My friend loaned me her digital camera too so I should be able to get some nice pictures.

Sorry to hear about your birthday, Cathy. I guess I misread your last post about the whale watching and thought that's what you did on your birthday. Then I just reread it and realized you did that on the weekend. Spending the day alone can be a bummer - especially on a day that is meant for celebrating.

I agree - this isn't too hard to get use to. I am missing the "at home" feeling I felt on the "yesterday" board, but in a day or two, this should feel the same way.

Btw - love your new handle - it suits you perfect and that picture of you - cute! Now I know why you were dubbed Dashy - it looks like you were ready to take off. Have a great day - Jessie

Well Cathy that just sucks big time! I am so sorry you were all alone. Nobody should ever be alone on their birthday. I really thought the whaling was great. Hopefully, next year will be better. Hey, at least it wasn't your 50th!!..((hugs))SS
