My birthday week

Tuesday of last week was my birthday.  Since my workload has been a bit on the slow side lately, I decided to take advantage of it and celebrate my birthday all week.  I still worked — in fact, I even worked on my birthday — but not as much, and I made sure that I did something for me every single day.  I went to the barn every day that week, read a lot, took hot baths, and just in general pampered myself.  With the exception of a fall from my horse on Friday, it was a great week.

As I've gotten older, I've gotten into the habit of not doing much to recognize my birthdays.  Sometimes I'll try to take the day off, but that can be hard to manage.  I found the week-long method much easier — I didn't feel guilty about working on my birthday that way, because I knew that I would go to the barn later, or read a book in the middle of the afternoon, or something else like that.  I think I may have to make this a yearly tradition!

What do you do to celebrate your birthday?
