Happy Birthday to ME!!!

Yep, it's my birthday. This is the big number 57. I really have a hard time believing that I am 57, not sure what it is suppose to feel like, but I know I don't feel that old. O yeah, I have a few more aches and pains every once in a while, but on the inside, I am still in my late 20's, early 30's. The other day I took a quiz in a medical magazine at work, it is suppose to tell you what age you really are and not the age of the years you have been walking around on Mother Earth. After I answered all the questions and totaled my score...it say I am actually 27,hmm
I can accept that. (chuckle)

I am always surprised when someone asks me my age and I tell them, they always give me a wide eyed look and say "Really, I would have never guess you were in your 50s, I would have thought middle to late 40s", and I just smile.

My age has never been something that bothered me. What can ya do about it? I am just thankful that I am in good heath, have lots of people who love me and care about me and that I am fortunate to have found and married the man of my dreams, my soul mate.

Patrick and I are going to celebrate my special day today by going to the hospital to see the new born son of some of our close friends. Mr. Jayden was born yesterday and from the pictures we have seen so far, he is a very handsome young man.
Then we are going to go to Disneyland and ride our favorite rides and enjoy
this beautiful Southern California Day together. Patrick asked me what I wanted for my birthday and one of the things I asked for was a day together with him, just the two of us having some special alone time together, something we don't get allot of us in our busy worlds. So I know, no matter what else we do, its going to be
a really spectacular day!!

Happy Birthday to me, and I hope I get to spend many more years here with all of you guys, living life and having fun......



Like A Bear Coming Out Of Hibernation.....

I don't know about you but I am so glad that Winter is over and Spring is on it's way. Usually I enjoy the Seasons,but this Winter has been a little tuff for me.
Maybe it was because we had so many rainy days and many of the ones that were not rainy were dreary. I just don't do well when we have a few dreary days in a roll, seems to just drain the life out of me. These past few months have found me staying in doors way more than I normally do and going to sleep earlier. Last week I was
laying in bed reading some of my favor blogs on here and it hit me I have been like
an old bear hibernating in the Winter time....and I had to laugh. It is true!!
But now that the days are getting longer, thanks to Daylight Savings Time, (YEA!!!) I am feeling more energized and have already started making plans for some hikes on the coming weekends....so yea...I guess I am like an old bear coming out of hibernation, looking forward to the coming Spring and Summer days and getting out of my cave to explore the world around me and have some really fun adventures!!!!
