I am 36 today



Me and My brother circa 1979
I very clearly remember in jr. high telling my BFF that 30 was ancient.  I mean ANCIENT! and I was never going to be that old.  And here I am 36! Now if your 45, your thinking 36 is  young chickie.  And if your 21, you are thinking, yep youre right- your ancient!  Its all relative I guess.  I don't feel 36.  Somedays I feel like I am 20.  My little class of first graders came into lab after lunch today.  They bought me a book of happy birthday wishes- sweet little things.  And then they guessed my age.  I am glad to say they thought I was 19.  I didn't correct them.  My coworkers made a fuss over me at lunch and my hubs took me and the kids and my FIL to dinner.  I got presents and love- it was a great birthday.  I really freaked out at 35 but so far 36 is a piece of cake!

I hope you had a great birthday!! I am SO glad to hear that 36 was easier than 35! When I turned 35 last May it was the first birthday that bothered me a little!

I turned 36 on the 9th...Happy birthday to us! My husband had a difficult time turning 26 (so long ago...), because he was on the wrong side of 25. I don't know if I feel like that at 36, but like you, I think it's just odd. Aren't we still 16?
