This is the first year in my memorable life that I haven’t spent the month counting down the days until my birthday. My birthday is next week (I’m turning the big 3-0) and I’m just feeling blah about the whole thing. Jeremy asked if I wanted to do anything and honestly – I just want to go to dinner and that’s about it. I’m just not feeling this whole aging thing.
This is also the first year where I haven’t had something specific in mind for a gift. I usually have at least one thing in mind (and for the last couple of years its been a purse) — but this year I was really stuck. Jeremy asked me for a list of things and I came up with really random stuff… a lot of which I’m not dying for… just things I thought would be cool to have like…
- a sewing machine… for all that sewing I plan on doing.
- a juicer… for all that juicing I plan on doing.
I fear adding a new appliance to our repertoire since I have a tendency to want gadgets but then NEVER use them (I’m looking at you, quesadilla maker).
So while I’ve been feeling a bit down about the whole birthday, one of my pals gave me a gift early.
Jealous? I’m only one chapter into the book and holy hell, Mr. Diamond is one angry child star. I can’t wait to write up a full review on this magical piece of literature.
So I took the day and day after off for my birthday… any suggestions for what I should do?
