Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to me. Happy Birthday to me. etc, etc.

Yes, I’m 29…again. I don’t feel my age. But, does anyone, really? My body feels older. It’s harder to get up in the morning, I can’t do the same kind of work that I used to do and my back hurts a lot. Part of my problem is I’m out of shape, I admit that.

My brain ‘feels’ around 32. Old enuf to have learned how to handle life (or most of it, anyway), and young enough to still have hopes of accomplishing something in the time left.

Actually, I have probably lived for more years than I have left! On the downhill slide. Over the hill. One foot in the grave. (Oh I hope not, I want at least 50 more years, especially with the current medical improvements.  Or, at least until after the Transformer movies come out.)

In my opinion, the most important thing I’ve learned is…righty tighty, lefty loosey. It took a long time for someone to clue me in. My late husband told it to me, and he was surprised that I had never heard the phrase before. But, that stupid kid’s rhyme has enabled me to take care of stuff around the house and get things done. He taught me many things, including how to hoot like an owl, use the proper tool for the job and put it away where it belongs when done and how to butcher a deer. But that’s another post for another day.  

I am proud of what I’ve done, I’ve survived some hard times and I feel lucky to be alive. I try to learn something new every day.  

I’m buying myself a LiveJournal lifetime account as a present to myself. Hooray. I am so good to me. I even bought my own birthday cake. Chocolate with butter cream frosting, yum. My family is taking me out to lunch and I’m going to toast myself with a shot of Jack Daniels. Here’s to me!
