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!
