I'm HOW old????

Well here it is! I tried to dodge it. Tried to keep myself busy in hopes that it wouldn't arrive. I obsessed over it. Pondered on it. And finally stayed up half the night waiting for it to arrive. And it came without notice. There was no loud bang or big parade. But it arrived none the less. Snuck up on me a little, even though I was expecting it.....my 30th birthday! Now don't get me wrong, I am not one of those woe-is-me fellas who thinks life ended after 29 but, I do have to stop and think where did the last twelve years since highschool go? It is strange to me. To think I am this age. I am blessed to have my family and really good friends around me. Some folks at thirty are still searching for that. But at the same time, I still feel like there are things that I didn't know at 18 that I am still trying to figure out! I always thought at 30 you knew it all!!! What happened to me??? LOL! So I guess, I will spend this year searching for that knowledge. Trying to find the answers to the questions that I haven't quite figured out yet. Maybe learn a thing or two about myself. But a have a sneaking suspicion that a strange thing will happen, I will be sitting here this time next year with a lot of the same questions. I will be too busy enjoying life to worry much with the small things. And a year will zip by like it always does. I know from 29 to 30 has been a blur, I can only wait and hold on to see what the next ten years hold! Happy Birthday to me!!!! Thirty isn't so bad, the hard part is remembering to say I am not 29 when asked my age. They say the memory is the first to go you know? :)

Have a blessed Thursday everyone!

Happy Birthday Ivana!

Birthdays certainly have a way of making you ponder.

Happy 30th to you, Ivana! Yes, researchers say that you actually start losing brain cells at 30 but honestly it seems like 40 is really when it kicks in - l0l. I remember when I turned 30 I drove to work in tears feeling so old. Ha! If only I knew then what I know now... 30 is so young! Enjoy your thirties, they really are a great time.
