The Big Five-O

Friday, November 15, 2013

Oh, as in OMG! As a kid, I never thought I'd even make it to 40. I have no idea why! Maybe I could never imagine being OLD, and when your age is in single digits, 40 is up there.

So now I'm 50, and it's ok! I do NOT feel old. I know who I am, and I content, for the most part, with my life. Sometimes I am very happy too. I have comfortable roof over my head, a decent job; my health is relatively good, and I have a small number of really good friends. I am blessed.

My sister keeps asking what I want for my birthday.

*crickets*

I have no idea! There is nothing that I want.
I suggested something for adopting a new kitty. Breeders are expensive, but I may go to a local shelter, as I did last time. Well, even those have fees.

I took the day off from work, because I thought I'd be sad today, about my loss of Miss Kitty, not about my age. Fifty is a victory. I am awesome for 50. 50 is not scary. Fifty. 50! See, not scary at all!

50 is the new 30; I keep hearing that. I think it could be true.

    There are no crickets on here. I used to have crickets. The guests enjoyed them so much... especially in winter... although sometimes they would escape and be under the guest refrigerator... not as enjoyable then... but in the evenings they would chirp. And then the chirping would stop and I'd have to explain that the dragon had eaten them. Pet frilled dragon that is.

    A belated emoticon to you. I turned 40 in May and am still scratching my head thinking "I'm really 40, 40?? really? - that sounds sooo grown up" and I sure don't feel all that grown up and serious sounding emoticon

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY DC!!!! Take care of yourself, get plenty of exercise, sleep and eating right, you will actually be the new "30" It's all about how you live and treat yourself.

    Now enjoy your day!! Have a small sliver of something you enjoy, and let it go at that! lol And don't take home leftovers!!! MJ

    Hey I just saw on Dr. Oz show, Duff (Ace of Cakes) used Monk Fruit granules for his cake icing and they said it tasted as good as sugar frosting!! Someday maybe.
    I am sure this is going to be just as hard to find like the beans I could never find.

    Well, 40 was my bad year. Then when 50 came didn't bother me, and even 60 didn't bother me, and 70, but when I hit 80, I asked myself where the hell did the time go? LOL

    Happy Birthday and many more. emoticon
