One month ago today I was floating around a pool. I was in charge of a cabana for a short time. I didn't have a care in the world. Why because it was my birthday and we were on holiday without any of the kids. I have to say so far my 38th birthday was my favourite. No one screamed at me. I didn't have to do any laundry or cook dinner (I made Leroy clean up from lunch without any guilt). It was a great day.
Now you may wonder why I didn't change my age on my profile until now. Not that I was trying to deceive you. I just forgot. It wasn't a top priority thing to do. I actually don't have a problem turning 38. I have more of a problem with getting grey than with getting older. When I turned 30 I had a good cry, not because I had totally wasted my 20s. I cried because Friends ended the week before. What would I watch every Thursday night? Thank you Grey's Anatomy for correcting this problem.
There is one thing I haven't gotten used to as I have gotten older. When I was younger I was always the youngest person in the office or among my friends. I now find myself becoming the oldest. I actually got excited when I was the youngest person at a lunch put on my the senior ladies study at my church (I told them I was going to crash more of their luncheons if they made that good of food each time). Not everyone I talk to gets my humourful references. I referenced Fat Albert yesterday and only one of the girls got it. I am one of the oldest moms in the hall when picking up the kids from school. I used to think maybe I had my kids late in life (I was 29 when Nicole was born), but I've come to the conclusion that everyone else rushed having kids too early in theirs. I will be in my mid 50s when Sam turns 20 and at the perfect age to enjoy traveling and keeping up with the grand kids. I won't be in my 40s and be a grandmother (hopefully I didn't just tempt fate).
I'm looking forward to turning 40. I spent my 20s doing nothing. My 30s having and raising my kids. My 40s are exciting possibilities. I could travel more, write a book, take up a new hobby, etc. God has great plans for my 40s and I can't wait to see what is in store.
