How The Hell Did 38 Sneak Up On Me?


I'm really trying to figure out how my 38th birthday snuck up on me like this.  I knew it was coming, I even took two days off to try and enjoy it, but it still got here quicker than I was expecting.  Maybe it's because I'm still frickin exhausted from my demanding work schedule over the last month.  Not that I can do much about it when I'm running two stores because we are so short on management right now.  

I'm not going to do much for my birthday today.  I'll go out to lunch with a friend, maybe go to a bookstore or two, but more the most part I'm just going to relax and enjoy some quiet time.  I'll read a bit, and watch a few movie, but mostly I'll rest.  A nice quiet birthday is just what I need.

Well, I'll be 48 in a couple of weeks, so as far as I am concerned, you're barely in the prime of your youth. :-) Happy Birthday!

I always think I want to go out and do fabulous stuff. Maybe it's because I never do. Then I get invited to go out and realize that I am too old and want to just sit at home, read, watch movies or play video games. Hope you get to relax. Happy Birthday

I was thinking of implementing Beth's idea for my birthday in November. She just already thought she was a year older so when her birthday came, it was like whew! No big deal! Trying to decide though if jumping from 34 to 36 this year in order to gain a year later would actually in fact kill me from shock now anyway. Hmm...
