Happy 29!

March 15, 2011

Today is my birthday.  It snuck up on me this year, that’s for sure! If Facebook didn’t let me know that yesterday was Pi Day (3.14, get it?), then I probably would’ve woken up this morning completely unaware until my mother called me at 12:09 to wish me a happy birthday.  12:09 is my official birth time, and mom has never missed a year! Although, you were 2 mins late this year, mom!

I’ve never been one to make a big to-do over my birthday.  After all, today’s just a Tuesday. I have to work like every other day.  Life goes on for everyone else.  In fact, I don’t usually mention that it’s my birthday at all. But for some reason, today was different.  I enjoyed telling customers and having them wish me a happy birthday.  My sister-in-law, mother-in-law, and nephews brought me cake and balloons at work, which was completely out of their way. It made me smile all afternoon and I proudly shared the cake with coworkers.  29. It feels like this year should be the start of something special. 29! Not yet 30! I still have 1 year before…..before what? Life is over?  That doesn’t seem right. 1 more year to make my 20s feel like they counted for something more than bad decisions, failed diets, and credit card debt?  Yup, that feels right.

29 is the year to make a difference.  I know this. It’s an awkward number, but one with so much potential!

I better have some of that cake before midnight!  That’s when cake turns back into asparagus, you know.
