Happy Birthday to Me

Well, here it is my 37th birthday. Yikes! I’m not fond of birthdays…haven’t been since I turned 30. Thankfully this year I’m not nearly as emotional as I was when I hit 30. lol

Yes I know age is only a number but the older I get and closer to 40 I get the more I dislike my birthdays. I suppose that’s normal. Does anyone really like getting older?

I over indulged on chocolate with peanut butter frosting cupcakes and peanut butter ice cream this weekend. My mom made the cupcakes and brought them to me with the ice cream on Saturday. I’d like to say I practiced self-control but uhm that didn’t happen…not even close! lol But then my dad took the kiddo & I out to dinner Saturday night at Subway and I ate somewhat healthy there…that hast to count for something right? 😉

Tonight I am going out with friends. The festivities start around 6:30pm where a local restaurant gives you a free meal on your birthday. Then after that I’m not sure what we’re doing or where we’re going. I’m just looking forward to not sitting at home feeling sorry for myself that I’m now 3 years away from the big 4-0!

    Happy Birthday!!!! Enjoy it all. It’s so great that you are going out with friends.
    Just for the record, things really started happening for me at 38. I got marrired at 40 and had my daughter at 42. One never knows…. Not the way I’d have planned it, but the number really doesn’t matter.
    Just makes one more creaky and the need to get the weight off greater.
    I think I’m going to feel like a kid again with 80 more pounds gone. Can’t wait.
    Again, Happy, Happy birthday!!!!!!

    Hi Teresa! Thanks for the birthday wishes. I know the number really doesn’t matter…at least I tell myself I know it doesn’t matter but I still let it get to me. I need to just shake it off & stop dwelling on it – after all I can’t change the fact that every year I have a birthday & get older! lol

    Life certainly doesn’t turn out the way we planned does it? Things really never happen when we think they should either…at least in my life that’s been the case. lol
