Today, I turn 38, which is the hardest thing for me to believe. I’m still wondering what happened to 35 or even 30. When I turned 36, that is when it all started getting away from me. I couldn’t keep up with getting older anymore. I stopped counting. I don’t feel 38. I don’t even feel 28. I feel 20.
So, here is my day so far. This morning, the kitchen was decorated with some wire birthday garland, and my chair at the table was decorated with balloons and streamers which they referred to as the birthday throne. There was also a homemade card was on the table. That was nice, actually a little more than I expected. We went to church and then to Wendy’s for my celebratory birthday taco salad. There will be no birthday cake. I always insist that I don’t want one. After lunch, I checked facebook and there were many birthday wishes on there. That was nice, too. I sent out a thank you to everyone and a few emails. I’m on a Felicity kick now, and after lunch I watched some clips on You Tube. Next, I read the entire episode guide for all four seasons at Felicity Page.com . It is MY day, right?? I can’t remember who I liked her with more, Noel or Ben. I think it was Noel. No, it was Ben…nah…it was Noel. Later, I had a cup of coffee and ate some chocolate and pecans, and then I took a 20 minute nap. From the comfort of the couch with my fat cat lying on me, I gave Daniel instructions on how to cook the chicken in the oven. I’d like some sauteed cabbage to eat with it, but I don’t think anyone in my house will go for that. I’ll have to cook that myself. Not sure of what I will do next. Maybe the laundry.
I received a few monetary gifts. Those are always nice. Not sure what I’ll buy for myself, but I’m leaning towards some new shoes. Keri Russell wore Converse Lo-Top Chuck Taylor All-Stars in Felicity. I really think they look cool. Funny thing is that I almost bought a pair a few weeks ago, but I wasn’t sure about it. I mean, come on…a homeschooling mom in her late 30’s (omg…late 30’s!) wearing Chucks. 😕
A friend wrote this in her birthday card to me, “You’re only as old as you feel, or as old as you tell everybody you are.”
I wonder if they still have my shoe size.
