Oy! I swear, everyone thinks I’m kidding but this birthday is hitting me harder than any other… It must have something to do with everything that is going on, that’s all I can seem to figure out. It isn’t a milestone birthday…
16 – Driver’s License – Been There, Done that
18 – No longer a “kid” – Nope
21 – Oh now you can drink if you want to – Not all it’s cracked up to…
25 – Hey your insurance drops – or in my case 26 but whatever
30 – You are no longer in your 20’s – Check, still there… for now
40 – Start hearing the Over the hill jokes – Oh boy I can’t wait
50 – More over the hill jokes – Yeah
60 – Approaching Retirement Age – definitely looking forward to this one but by the time I get there I probably won’t be able to….
70 – Becoming a kid again – Still up in arms about this…
80 – You have the world at your fingertips
90 – Woohooo you are still alive!!!
100 – Seriously?? Imagine what all you’ve seen in your lifetime at the age of 100!
Nope 27 doesn’t fall into any of those categories. I think I might only have 2 more birthdays, then I’ll do what the norm is and stick with 29. I’ve even heard people subtract once they hit 30. They say they are 29 minus 1 🙂 haha. Truthfully I think age is fairly irrelevant to an extent. My great grandma died at 94 years old and no one knew how she was until they put up her headstone. My other great grandma made it to 101. My great grandpa was 10 days shy of his 108th birthday when he passed away. See you just never know.
Over the weekend we had PC’s daughter so we celebrated my birthday then with her, that way she could be involved. It was funny because I gave her a hug and thanked her for my present (a new standing jewelry box) and she goes, why you thanking me, I didn’t have any part in buying that. haha… Kids are brutally honest!
We had my mom & dad, my grandparents (who my grandma and I share a birthday), Memaw, Tbug, PC & myself at the house for lunch. PC smoked a pork Tenderloin and his fabulous cabbage. My mom made my favorite potatoes. My grandma brought a Peach Cobbler. Memaw brought a triple decker cookie cake (like I had last year) and Tbug made me a single layer cookie cake.
As I said, PC, Tbug, dad and mom got me this:
Memaw gave me this cookbook. This lady is outstanding. You can also go to YouTube and search for her, she has her own facebook page as well. She’s 94 years old. Reading this cookbook is fun! She gives stories from living in the Great Depression.
I’m not sure I want to answer that question anymore, I think I’ll just stick to the day to day matters and see where those take me…
I hope you all are having the most wonderful Thursday. Me, not crazy about Thursdays, it’s just a tease it isn’t Friday but I’m not sure I want Friday this week, it’ll make a year older… but hey one good thing to come out of it, PC and I are having our first Shower (minds out of the gutter please), I’m talking wedding shower, bridal shower, what ever you’d like to call it. We both work for the same company and so they are throwing US a shower :). Looks like this will be our only shower. Oh well, at least we get the experience of having one 🙂
Peace, Love & Thursdays!
