Happy Birthday to Me!

It's almost the end of a busy day, but I decided to pop over and mention that I am now entering a new decade -- unless of course one wants to get pendantic about how to count it up -- but none-the-less, I am now a thirty year old and have left my twenties behind.

While I'm not terribly bothered by that fact, it also seems a bit strange and hard to believe. Do I have to be a grown-up now or may I still whine like a toddler now and then?


Never grow up; at least not all the way! Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Jordana!

I've never understood the big deal with the number 30. It's just another step on the path, you know? May your life continue to grow more rich and full over this next year and beyond.

I'm 33 and I still whine every now and then. Doesn't every over-30 year old?

Happy Birthday! Welcome to the 30s. We've been saving you a spot!

Almost 52 says that at my age, I am fully capable of whinging, still. It's just that I want to do it less and less. At a certain point, gratitude kicks in :-)

Embrace 30, it is a wonderful new phase that can bring so much more to your life. But then, I was single, and going to medical school in South America when I turned 30.
30 entitles you to not only whine, but whine with a demand for respect!
Happy birthday!

Boy, it's nice not to have to enter my name over and over and over and over and...

Anyway, my thoughts for your birthday are summed up here

Happy belated birthday! If we over-30s are not allowed to whine, nobody told me. And hopefully, no one will!

Happy Birthday to a great Curmudgeon!

You'll find the 30's some of the best times of your life, if you can find the time reflect when you're not chasing after yung'uns.

Happy birthday, belatedly. Hope it was a good one!

Gee whiz--I go out of town for a couple of days and you age an entire year!

All the best, of course, no matter how belatedly the wishes might arrive.

Happy Birthday!
Of course you are still allowed to whine... at least I do it all the time ;-)

Aw gee...you're so young!!! And much more "with it" than I was way back then!

Hope you had a wonderful day!

A belated happy day to you! Hope it was spectacular. :- ))

Happy Birthday--and how many Jordanas do YOU know? :) It must be magnetic; I've met 4 or 5. I found your blog while googling my own in a fit of extreme egotism ("Am I famous yet?").

Anyway, nice to meet you, and enjoy your entry into a new decade!

Happy 30th Birthday....just wait, it gets better by the time you hit 40!!

Happy Birthday!

Being late for things like this is normal for me. I tell everyone my Indian name is Running Behind.

Remember when you thought 30 was old? Doesn't look so bad now, does it?
