Feeling Old

I'm thirty-two years old today. It's strange how little it mattered to me this morning whether or not I got any presents. If you'd asked me on my seventh birthday what I wanted, I could have handed you a mile long list, including many Strawberry Shortcake and Barbie related items.

Now I hope for a finished tile job at the new house and I bought myself a new bra. If my husband comes through with a fruit tart (my favorite) I'll consider it a good birthday. When I have a garden next year, I'll want plants to celebrate the day. This year, I'd be more than happy with a house, but since that's not going to happen for a while, I can wait and be thankful for the progress that is being made.

But if it isn't all about the number and is really all about how old you feel, I afraid I'm probably 80. However, being a geezer wouldn't be so bad. I could whap the kids with my cane and sit in a chair drinking tea.


You, my dear, are far from a geezer. Happy Birthday! (Again, lol.)

If you're a geezer, than I'm a mummy.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday! I'll be happy to let you borrow my cane for the whapping! I hope your day was special.

Happy belated birthday, Jordana. We'd all send you a lovely tart if we could transmit such a thing as readily as we can good wishes.

Bras & tarts? Doesn't sound like a bad birthday to me :P.

Happy birthday, and welcome to the downhill slope.

Happy birthday, my (almost) Internet twin! Sorry I didn't check in on the actual day ... I had enough trouble remembering my own birthday this year.

I like your blog! Happy Belated B-Day! I love the word curmudgen.

Would you consider adding links to my blogs? I have two that are ‘mom resources’. One’s just a fun whatever I want to talk about blog and the other is a recipe blog. I try to stick to recipes that take 30 minutes or less.

Check them out.

Thanks for your time. If you think our blogs are compatible I’ll definitely be adding a link to you as well.
