Well, since D called me out in the comments below, I suppose it’s time to own up to my day of birth, which is today. I feel pretty low-key about it this year; maybe it has something to do with the lack of a significant milestone (except that I’m officially embarking on my late 20s…grr!), or the fact that I’m sort of in life limbo, waiting for things to happen.
But that doesn’t mean I’m unhappy. Oh, no. Things are quite peachy in birthday land (which I tend to extend two days before or after the actual date. I know it’s not fair, but it’s how I roll.). There are lots of birthday goodies and upcoming events; had a yummy lunch, looking forward to a tremendous dinner, and a few items of shopping goodness to be had—Eric even gave me a private gun show!
And, in the same vein of happy birthday times, I got something big crossed off my list today:
A new apartment in a new city.
It’s been a long time coming, but an east coast transition is finally starting to come together. My adventure to Denver was a fun one—and important. I think it’s equipped me with the skills not only to begin again, but to be excited about it. And, you know, the fact that D will be near is pretty dang sweet, too.
It’s a good day. And if I feel old, it’s only because I’m making big girl decisions. Not because I spotted a faint line in my forehead. 🙂
Now get excited to come visit me by checking out my new neighborhood!
