So the reason for the Abundant Thanks from before was because my Husband designed a not so surprize, surprize party for me. I knew there were going to be people, but not who specifically and I knew there would be food, but not what specifically. It turned out wonderful!!
First I went out to breakfast with my Mother and Sister In-Law. We had a great time chatting about driver’s ed and college. 🙂 Then Derek and I went to see Pirates II, it was AWESOME to say the least! And then, despite the rain and the fact that it was a Wednesday evening, I had at least 24 or so people show up for ribs, chicken and pulled pork and cake! It was so wonderful!!!
The question of the evening for me was, “Do you feel any older?” And my answer was, “of course not!” I feel that this decade will hopefully be a good one for me. I know that I have matured greatly throughout my 20’s and am looking forward to a new set of numbers. I don’t think I look any different anywhere on my person when I get in front of the mirror and I still feel like I am 15 sometimes. Yet, I feel more comfortable with myself, having learned how to deal with my own little quirks through my “younger” years. 😉 What am I noticing that is different? I write lists a lot more than I used to, so I can cope with those “senior” moments better. You know the ones I mean…going into a room to get something and suddenly and inexplicably forgetting what it was as soon as you step foot in said room. Or thinking about something you want to research on-line and as soon as you get to your home page, something distracts you and two hours later you say to yourself, “There was something I wanted to do here….what was it?” Only to repeat the same thing when you do remember it later.
So far, I think I like being 30 in spite of the jokes and jabs my Husband gives me now and again about being so much older than he is. Like in 11 months when HE turns 30, yeah we’re SOOOOO far apart there, darling. The day itself was wonderful and I can only hope there are many more of those good days to come.
And thank you all again!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
