Happy Birthday to Me

Monday, January 12, 2015

I love to hear what people do on their birthdays (I have had good and bad ones over all the years) so I will post how mine goes. I have decided to gift myself with the following: 1) a budget-busting new exercise bra (pun intended) . I usually get the cheapest kind possible from discount places but I think age requires me to have better fitting support at last. My Under Armour capris have been holding out well despite lots of punishing stretching and laundering, so I am thinking of splurging on one of their bras that zip up the front. I always get drenched with sweat so I feel like my arms are getting dislocated when I change in the locker room. I basically have to watch every dollar in the household budget, but I have learned that getting the best you can afford for things you use daily is the way to go. 2) I would like to take some time out to assemble a new playlist using some music from my teenage days! It will take ages because I will have to dig out my old phonograph and see if it works. Then I will have to find and set up necessary adapters and find software that will convert line-in audio to mp3. Hmmm lots of trouble for the birthday girl, but I feel I am worth it. Vinyl lps and 45s are quite sturdy so I am sure they all will play if the machine gets working. My phonograph is one of those old monoraul ones, not stereo. Most of you hear do not know ancient music- I have every Ventures album, Sandy Nelson, Linda Scott, Kathy Young and the Innocents, Chet Atkins, Impalas, and so on. Pretty excited about this birthday!

    Wow... my birthday is also in January, was the 18th. I really didn't do much for myself for my birthday. By now you've probably needed a couple more bras to add to your birthday collection.

    Andddd well I thought I was old... but I remember seeing Chet Atkins in concert in Pasadena CA in 1980 and I thought he was old as the hills then. I have a lot of playlists on the Spotify and so I always like checking out new decades, new genres, new artists, new styles...

    Take care!

    Jenna, I read this blog while checking out your page to thank you for the birthday goodie. Love your description of the phonograph and vinyl records. I still have a few from the 50's -60's, but the phonograph is long gone, LOL!

    Hope you made that playlist emoticon

    Have a happy birthday! emoticon
    I found your blog by reading the blog about how not to maintain weight loss and not gain the weight back. I have lost and gained every time. This time I lost 75 lbs and gained back 15lbs. I joined the 5% challenges and find that they do work for me. The winter challenge is closed now but I wanted you to know that it helps me stay on track.
