An Interactive Twilight Experience.
No sooner do you celebrate a birthday these days and the next one seems to be just around the corner. I remember when I was a kid and time moved so slow, birthdays took forever to come around. The slowest were the milestone birthdays of course. I remember when I was 10, I just couldn't wait to turn 16. "Sweet 16" as everyone says, and I remember being so excited, I'm sure I drove my family crazy. The funny thing was, by the end of that first week of being "sweet 16" I was feeling a little down. I was under the illusion that my life was going to change dramatically and things were going to be so different. *chuckles* Yet I still had to do my chores around the house and my homework. Things were not so different.
Things were most definitely different by the time I was 21 though... Harry and I were married and we had Leah. I had a family *laughs* and... I still had chores. By the time I turned 30, my family was complete... Seth had not only arrived but was a thriving four year old and yes you know it... I still had chores.
It is a woman's prerogative whether to discuss her age and I think I'll exercise mine at this point. Just the minute detail of which exact birthday I'll be celebrating this year. Don't misunderstand me, I still enjoy my birthday... very much so in fact. Seth and Leah always make a fuss, breakfast in bed etc... Charlie, Billy & Liseli always take me to lunch, so don't get me wrong, just because I don't mention the number out loud nowadays doesn't mean I'm dreading it.
Even if I live to see 100, I won't be saying it out loud... but bring it on. As always I'm ready and when you celebrate your birthday this year, or if you already have... I wish you the very best that life has to offer and the love of your family and friends.
