Maturity is for the birds

and me apparently.

So it's the birthday of:
1- Having to go get a new picture for the driver's license bc even the state knows I just can't pull off 25 anymore.
2- Having to take the vision test for said license bc even the state knows that @ 35, I can't still have good vision.
3- Being closer to 40 than 30.
4- Knowing there is band practice, soccer, and open house tonight and not even minding that they want to share my birthday.
5- Asking for the gift of yardwork and closet cleaning over jewelry and new bags--and not because of money, but because I actually want those things more.

35, welcome.

This list made me laugh. #10 reminded me of when I thought I had died and gone to Heaven because I got a Swiffer Wet Jet.

Seriously though, I am not kidding when I say that in my mind you will always be 28...it really is the way I think of you...if not YOUNGER.

Happy Birthday! At least you've still got a good 5 years until 40. I'm a whole lot closer than that. I guess one of the blessings of getting older is that I often can't remember how old I am.:-)

Happy Birthday!
I can so relate to this post. I just asked Kalani for removal of the old air conditioning window units that were here when we moved in, as a birthday present.

Hope there is some fun mixed in with the routine!
