Happy Birthday to ME!
I can’t believe I’m 25. I don’t feel young anymore, I actually feel like an experienced mom, finally. It’s interesting how excited I am this year for my birthday. I remember last year, I was in a funk, and could’ve cared less if anyone remembered me, it was just another day (of course Mark and my mom surprised me with a night out..my mom babysat. It was a nice birthday). This year though, I am excited and happy. Life is good. I believe I’ve taken a lot of leaps this last year to better myself, so I don’t fall prey to depression so easily, and it is working.
I took matters into my own hands this year, and planned out my birthday the way I wanted (which is why I’m posting late Friday night, no time to get on tomorrow!). My celebration actually started this evening with my brothers high school graduation. I missed my younger sisters, and made a commitment at that point that unless there’s an emergency I wouldn’t miss my other siblings. Check! Only one more to go, in another 2 years.
I have an early morning 5K planned with my sisters. The race starts “promptly” at 7:30 and it’s about 30 minutes away. I told my sister M about it last week, and she said she’d love to run with me, SCORE! I love doing stuff with my sisters. It got even better, when my baby sister A told me today she was running it with us as well. Can my birthday get any better than that? Oh yeah. After our race we’re headed to Jamba Juice for some of the best fruit smoothies in the world!
We’re going to then relax at my parents the rest of the morning. For lunch my mom is cooking a barbecue to celebrate my brothers graduation and my birthday. Bonus here again, some aunt and uncles are going to be in town and are stopping by for the barbecue! I rarely get to see my extended family, so them coming on my birthday is a very special treat for me.
Finally, the day is ending with a date with my husband and some good friends as we go to Boondocks for some miniature golf, batting cages, laser tag, and maybe go-carts. After some fun there, we’re headed to the movies to see the new X-Men movie. I mean come on, what could make this birthday any better? Running with sisters, barbecue with family, and a night out with old friends!
That’s right, it gets better – FOR YOU!
