Turning 30 didn't bug me in the least. It was just another birthday for me, but turning 37 is kind of freaking me out. I'm now 3 years away from the big 4-0! Isn't that the age when you get the "over the hill" birthday party with all the black balloons and stuff? I can remember back in like 1984, thinking to myself that in the year 2000, I'd be 28, and man that was old!!
Now please forgive me if I've offended anyone reading my blog over the age of 40, I surely don't mean to. I think you're all awesome, and much younger at heart than me.
I think my problem is that I feel old.
My hubby got me this fun BrainAge game for the Nintendo DS that I wanted, it's supposed to help exercise your brain. Man-oh-man!!! After the inital test on that puppy, it say's I have the brain age of an 80 year old!!!!!!!!!!!!
I believe it too, my brain has completely gone flabby. Seriously, my mom remembers things better than I do.
And don't even get me started on the aches and pains I'm already feeling.
I think today is going to actually mark my New Year, and I'm making some new resolutions.
I'm going to play that BrainAge game until it tells me I've got the brain age of a thirty year old. It tells you the ideal brain age is twenty, but I'm not too sure about that. I was a total nincompoop at the age of twenty. Thirty gives you a little life experience under your belt.
And I'm going to get my big ol' behind out of bed a half hour earlier five days a week, and get a little e.x.e.r.c.i.s.e. . And, I'm going to make better food choices. I'm going to whip this tired and worn out body back into the proper shape for a young, vibrant, 37 year old mother of four still young kids. So there mid life crisis! Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
Ok, sorry. I may be losing a few more of the few marbles I have left.
A big shout-out to sweet Shauna, she sent me some sweet mail for my birthday. Sweet, sweet, sweet lady. Please go give her some love for me. She can use a few extra hugs right now.
I've had a wonderful week. Had my mom and mother in law in town over the weekend. It was great to have them here. My mom gave me five fabulous crafting/decorating books. Loving them. Jon's mom gave me moola for a pedicure. Can't wait!! And my sweet Ashley made me some cute, cute, cute beaded jewelry. I need to take a picture.
Anywho, hope you all have a great Thursday.
