This Is My Last Official Birthday

Haven't you heard?  Age is just a number, and I'm picking 35!  So it'll be all anniversaries after this.

Today I turned 35, and at 35 I intend to remain.  I have informed L and the Girls that next year we will not be celebrating my 36th birthday we will be celebrating the 1st anniversary of my 35th birthday and I will be 35 to the 1st power.

Furthermore, I have also informed L that with this plan in place he too has celebrated his last birthday, (he will be celebrating only anniversaries in the future) and will be remaining 44 by default.  He was pretty excited about that!



So if the 30's are the new 20's and the 40's are the new 30's then L and I are going to be young whippersnappers for quite some time to come.

On another note...I kicked off my last official birthday by climbing into a tree this morning.  Why?  Because our newest addition to the family was stuck.


It wasn't until later that I began to wonder who was the bigger fool...the 4 month old kitten that climbed up a tree and then wasn't smart enough to figure out she couldn't climb back down headfirst or the 35 year old woman that climbed up after her and then spent 15 minutes trying to reach her while waving a hair ribbon and cooing "here kitty kitty".
