C is for….lots of things today!
It’s for coffee…I am very certain a large number of post will be dedicated to this sweet nectar of the blogging Gods today! I LOVE coffee! Fancy-schmacy flavoured coffee, good ol’ regular perc coffee, Keurig coffee, drive-thru Timmies or McDonalds coffee…yum! Anyone who knows me well, knows not to even bother speaking to me until I have had my first cup in the morning!
It’s for cold…It’s cold in this house! After a long winter of keeping the wood stove going we are both just to darn lazy to stay on top of it! It’s April for sobbing out loud!! GET WARM OUTSIDE ALREADY!!!
Its for crazy cats! All three of our cats have gone completely coo-coo bananas this past week and are currently competing in a game we like to call “The Kitty 500”: race around the cabin chasing something that only they can see and crashing into anything or anyone who gets in their way. My poor old puppy and I are snuggled on the couch staying out of their way…it’s safer.
It’s for cake: Some of which I hope to have later on today because…
It’s also for Celebrate! Yup…today is my 34th Birthday! I woke up this morning to a pile of lovely best wishes from friends and family on Facebook, Email and text message….each one making me smile and feel loved. I got a surprise phone call from my Mommy; which made me cry! ( I love my Mommy!!) I got a big hug from my favourite boy (who is 14 but still calls me Mommy!) I got a silly song sung to me by Jay (while he was holding Spider-Man the kitty-cat and making him dance which made it that much more funny!)…so far it’s been a great day!! I LOVE my birthday…I always have. I keep expecting myself to one year be upset or afraid of being older…but I’m not. I guess to me age is just a number…it really means nothing compared to how you feel. I don’t think I am old simply because I don’t act old. I am proud to be older. When people say “Do you feel older today??” I always answer of course I do! I certainly feel older than I did when I was 12 and awkward and shy . I feel older than I did when I was 21 and had no idea what I was doing with my life (thank GOD that’s over!…I still don’t have that answer; I just figured out it doesn’t matter!). I feel older because I feel satisfied with my life and the choices I have made thus far to get me where I am right now. Yay me! I feel older right now than I ever have in my life and I can’t wait to feel older and older as the time goes on and be more and more satisfied with beautiful life I have been blessed with!
So Cheers everyone!!! Happy Birthday to me!!! Feel free to have a glass of wine/cold beer/Shirley Temple tonight to celebrate with me! and please everyone: toast yourselves for being older at this moment than you ever have been before! (Best. Accomplishment. Ever!)
