How I Gained a Year!

You may worry about me when I tell you this, but I thought I was turning 48 today -- because that's what one of my children told someone last week -- and I believed them. However, when I finally thought about what year I was born (1962), and what year it is now (2009), and then put to use my higher math skills, I realized that I am only 47 today!!! Hooray! I feel like I gained an extra year of life!!! :)


Today is not only my birthday, but also my blogoversary! So, I have lots to celebrate and lots to blog about! To read my very first blog post, click here. I will post a special blogoversary post later.

Does dad still call and sing you "George Washington's Bridge"? Have a wonderful birthday, my most beloved and special sister!!

I am soooo glad you are younger than you thought, but don't forget you are still much older than me!!! (Funny how that used to be a "bad" thing, but now it is "pretty cool"!!)

I hope you were able to eat some apple chip cake on your special day. Love you!!

Happy Birthday. And I did this for almost a whole year because my kids said I was older than I was and it took me that long to realise. Seriously! And my sister also did the same thing until my Mum did the maths and told her she was younger than she thought! I guess that just goes to prove that age doesn't mean anything (not that I felt older - I still feel only 25 until I look in the mirror).

And Noel, the minister who married us wrote the wrong year in the Bible he gave us as a gift. We were married the first Saturday in January and he forgot that the year had changed over!

Have a great day.

Check your email and facebook for a little song. I know, I know, you can't believe I am posting, but I am so sick that I am acting like a regular person today instead of going 90 miles a minute like usual. I might even . . . blog!

Happy Birthday!!

I'm a September BD, too. Another thing we have in common. I'll always remember your day since it is sandwiched between two of my boys.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY FRIEND! I am 47 also, but many times I keep forgetting how old I am. I guess that comes with age...

I also feel like I am a better person today than I was last year and that I am ready to "start" living my life now. How do you feel about being 47?

Oh! I almost forgot - as far as your blogoversay, thank you so much! You have been an inspiration to me and I have learned so much about blogging, taking and sending pictures, keeping people informed, just simply "blogging". Keep up the good work!
