So Long, Youth

Well, my birthday is tomorrow.

The Cubs are not in town on this particular birthday of mine (as they were last year and the year before), so when planning my festivities I kept drawing a blank.  Literally could not think of a single thing to do to celebrate.

And then, as my mother said to me yesterday, “well, you’re not old for another two days!”…

Thanks, Ma!

But really, I am looking forward to a nice, low-key dinner tomorrow with my family and then celebrating with some choice beverages over the weekend with friends.

And like I mentioned before, I’m pretty thankful for a lot in my life these days- being able to check off another year on the old calendar is another reason to be thankful.

And since I’m taking the day off of work tomorrow to relax and pat myself on the back for making it through another year relatively unscathed, I think I’ll go do a little of this:

right now.

If my youth officially ends tomorrow, I might as well go out with a bang!

Can I get an ‘amen’?

  1. Amen! Happy Belated Bday. I’m totally jealous of your porch sittin. That sounds lovely. I think my bday will be low-key this year too, though it will also include a couple choice beverages.
