Do I Have To Turn 35?


All this year I've been fine with turning 35.  I had no problem turning 30, so why would I care so much about being 5 years older than that?  So why does it seem I'm hating the idea?  Right now, I'm going to blame it on the wedding I went to last night.  For some reason, they always make me feel older than I am.  Not sure why, but not going to think too hard about it either.  Introspection is good for you, right?

I'm going to go into work for a few hours, then come home and spend the rest of the day with my son.  He came home from MN on Friday, and I couldn't have asked for a better birthday present.  Not sure what we will be doing, if anything, but spending time with him will be enough.

So please indulge in some cake and ice cream today and I hope you all have a great day.

35 sounds pretty darn good to me! I hope you have a wonderful day. Happy birthday, Ryan!!

Happy Birthday! I am actually getting close to 36 and it seems a bit unreal. One thing you may find though is that you start forgetting how old you actually are. I started having that problem after 30, maybe because on some level I didn't want to get any older than that! Hope you have a great day!

Happy Birthday!

I was fine with 35, but 40 in a couple years is going to be tough, I think.

I think it's whenm you have to change age range on website dropdowns that's the big shock.

Happy cake day!

Happy Birthday, kiddo! Have a great one with your son. 35 is nothing. I could do it again with one hand tied behind my back. Ha!

Happy Birthday!
I had to be dragged kicking and screaming to thirty and I wasn't much happier about turning 31 last year, so I can definitely relate. Though having kids at home can help keep you young, so I hope you and your son have a great times together celebrating your birthday.

Happy birthday! You are only as old as you feel. Therefore I'm 10008 years old! ;) See... 35 doesn't sound so bad now... right? :)

Happy Birthday! Looking back at 35 from 42....35 doesn't look bad at all! Hope you have a great day with your son.

You share your birthday with another fine fellow...my son.

Hope you had a great day with your son! I had a tough time with 27 for some reason, but the rest have been a breeze. And if Melissa is right and you're only as old as you feel, then I'm either 110 or 14! *L*

Hope you enjoy cake and ice cream today! :)

Ryan said...

Happy Belated Birthday!! I'm turning 35 next year and I don't like it one bit! But as long as we stay young at heart, we should be fine eh?

trish said...

I'll eat some cake and ice cream for you. :)

Turning another age sometimes doesn't sit well with us, and it's hard to know why.

Happy Birthday anyway :)

Happy Belated Birthday, Ryan! I hope it was sweet (despite your misgivings).

Karen said...

Happy Belated Birthday! Hope you had a lovely day despite not looking forward to it (I know the feeling).

Kaye said...

Happy Birthday, Ryan!! Age is just a number,Tootsie, don't let it get to you. Have a lot of fun with your son.

Ryan said...

A few days later, I'm not feeling too bad about the 35 thing. I just hope I don't have a hangup about 40 when it happens :-)

Thanks for all the birthday wishes, you guys rock!

You're not old, silly! But I know what you mean. I'll be 43 in October and I'm always torn between thinking "age is a state of mind" and "ugh, I'm old!" LOL! I hope you had an awesome birthday!

Why was Aidan in MN?

Amanda said...

Happy birthday! I just found your blog from reading Heather at Age 30+.

Staci said...

Ceri said...
