My issue is that this is a year in the "9's." I hate the "9's!" They just sound so harsh to me. I know it makes no sense, just is what it is for me. Nothing I can do about it but I still hate them.
I've never been sure why so many people, especially women, are so afraid of growing older. We knew it was coming. As I said earlier, I worked hard to get here. I'm proud of my age and being here. Next year will be a milestone year and it'll seriously be party time. Get ready for that one Tucson. You've got a year to prepare. I'm smarter, gained more perspective, handle things less rashly, listen to my gut more (it's usually right) and get more accomplished. Be proud of your age people. I love each & every grey hair on my head that I earned. I've even had strangers compliment my hair and the grey in it. Wow! Although I think D. is going to want to dye it soon. Cutting it backed her off but I think she's eyeballin' it again. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it I guess.
It's been a crazy weekend for me. Went out Fri. night with my friend D., my brother, sister & I went to a classic car show all afternoon on Sat. Wow, such beautiful vehicles there. Including my friends' dream car, a midnight blue 1960 GTO with white leather interior. I took a couple of pics for him and texted them to him. He called me as soon as he saw them. OMG! He was so excited.Then D.& I went to a surprise 40th birthday for another friend, B., last night. Today my sis, G., & I are going to Five Palms for brunch, I love Sunday brunches and I rarely get to go to them since I usually work on Sundays but I took the next few days off. Tomorrow I'll get my teeth whitened, my house is going to get cleaned by 2 other people, I love that, then my family is taking me out to dinner. We're going to Armitage for dinner. It's sooooooo good there, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
I took Tuesday off as well, but unfortunately I may have to go in for jury duty. Not nice! I was scheduled for last Tuesday but my group was postponed a week. I thought about getting it deferred but had that sinking feeling that I would probably be re-scheduled when G. & I are on our cruise which has already been paid for. Thats NOT going to happen. Gotta pick my battles, right?
Keep living folks, you're never too old!
