june 3, 2009. my 52nd birthday!
i always celebrate my birthday for a couple of weeks. i don't make plans...as i prefer to just do whatever i feel like doing vs. having to do something because its been planned...then going thru with it and feeling downright miserable! i don't do that anymore!
so...even though i didn't take the day off from work...i had a great day! i was scheduled to be at a meeting all day...so...i pretty much spent the day sitting in a conference room...where there was a non-stop parade of food ~ bagels & fruit for breakfast, lasagna & salad for lunch, cookies & then a cake.
the meeting was very productive; however, once i got out of the meeting...i had family & friends to talk to...emaills to return...and a birthday to celebrate!
i hadn't spoken to anyone in my family...and i was missing my birthday greetings. when my mother calls...i just hold the phone and wait for the singing to commence. she doesn't just sing the 'regular' happy birthday song...you get a medley.
at 52...i'm pretty set in my ways. i have quite a few hobbies...but not enough hours to enjoy them all. i've contemplated a schedule...but what would be the fun in that. i've been paying for my gym membership for years...but have only started going in the past year...and am finding that i enjoy it. i used to read more books than i do now...but lately...i mainly read tweets.
so...in my 53rd year...i'll continue doing most of what i've done in the past...and see if i can uncover a few more hours in the day to tackle some of my newest hobbies.
now...it's time for a glass of bubbly. cheers!
