I'm 28 what?

Hey Lovelies!

I thought about doing one of those 28 things I've learned in 28 years posts....but decided against it. Instead I present you with the stream of consciousness that was my morning thoughts.

I woke up before my alarm, and wished myself happy birthday.

Then I thought...Boomer starts 2nd grade in a few short weeks.

That means I have 10 years left to help her become a functioning adult member of society. Crap. The past 7 have gone super fast so I'm really going to have to cram a lot into the next 10. Also....we need to do back to school shopping. Crap.

I wonder if I should be really irresponsible and use my tax refund for a boob job next year.

I should really get my passport.

I should really get up.


(Finally out of bed now....looked in the mirror...)

Hmmm is this what 28 looks like? Not to shabby there Whit!

Ok...that's enough of my inner monologue. I sound like a weirdo. (Not that I'm not a weirdo....)

My mom used to ask me on every birthday how it felt to be that particular age. I always told her that I felt the same as I had the day before. I don't FEEL 28 today. Honestly I don't feel that much different than I did when I was 18 even though I know it was 10 years ago. Sure I've grown up, and been through some things and changed, but I'm still me. My grandfather told me that once, when I asked him how it felt to be in his 70s. He said ' Dutty, (another nickname), I feel like I did 20 or 30 years ago. You'll always be you no matter how old you get.'

"No, I regret nothing!'

So I guess that's the lesson I've learned in 28 years. I'm still learning 'me', but I like her. I am in a much better place than last year at this time. I'm happy with the choices and changes I've made. The amazing friends I have. (And the cool people that read my word vomits!) So......let's continue the slow march to 30.......

Happy Birthday girl!

I think Boomer will be fine! 2nd grade crazy!

I will be 29 in a few months and I'm like you I don't feel that old (until I get sick or hurt or something LOL definitely don't bounce back like I used to.)

You look great!
