Happy Street, where flowers bloom, doggies romp, and every day is your birthday. Oh wait, today IS my birthday!
The big 3-4 which is actually feeling pretty old right now. I can no longer claim "early 30s" and have to adopt the "mid-30s" moniker. I don't know about you, but most of the time I feel about 14. My favorite thing about birthdays is not answering your phone. Then, at the end of the night, listening to all your well-wishing messages. I especially like that a lot of people sing you Happy Birthday 0 sometimes well (like my musician brother-in-law and sister), sometimes not so well (everyone else).
I used to try to plan a big birthday outing with all my friends - bowling or a bar - but found that organizing it stressed me out. So now I try to do nothing for my birthday except get taken out to dinner by my husband. And I pamper myself a little. Today I'm going to walk a few extra blocks to get my favorite chai beverage before work. And I'll probably spend at least 20 minutes this morning debating the merits of my favorite takeaway lunch spots before treating myself to a nice lunch. Of course it wouldn't be a birthday with presents, so I also picked up some on-sale Superbuzzy fabrics as a gift to myself. I am the best gift giver ever!
