This blessed and calescent month of July I turn 31. I am no longer 30. I am IN my 30s.
I know most people would be frightened by this fact but it is so exciting to me. I have been alive for over 30 years and of those 30, the last 5 have been the most fulfilling, frustrating, exciting, and insane of them all. I so look forward to what the future has in store for me.
The last 3 have been just a whirlwind of change. The Workaholic and I got married, we had Madilyn, I became a stay at home mom, we moved to Savannah, GA 5 months later, Grady was born 11 months after that, and now we have moved to Raleigh, NC. Sheer insanity.
Last year, The Workaholic wasn’t even going to take my birthday off, let alone throw me a party, and he pretty much told me I was on my own as far as a gift was concerned.
So, fine! I purchased a dress that was way too small but that I loved and threw myself a wonderful big-hat birthday party. My bests came from far and wide to celebrate the glorious turning of a decade in my life. We wore big hats and pretty dresses to a fancy restaurant and followed it up with a carriage ride around Savannah. OH how high class we were.
There will be no such parties this year as I enter INTO my 30s but The Workaholic has offered to take my birthday off. Perhaps he’ll also let me go get that massage I’ve been dreaming of for the past 3 years.
Yeah, probably not.
But he’ll be off and it will be wonderful. It will.
He started off a little better than last year by asking me what I wanted for my birthday. I told him he knew what I wanted. I’ve been whining about a new purse for well over a month now.
He scoffed and said to me, “I was going to get you a Keurig. I was spoiled while I was staying at Aunt Kathy’s house and now I hate making whole pots of coffee.”
HOLD THE PHONE!
Anyone else hear what’s wrong with this statement? Just re-read it real quick.
Yeah. HE was spoiled while HE was staying at Aunt Kathy’s house and how HE hates making whole pots of coffee.
I smiled and told him a Keurig was fine and that he would be getting a new Coach bag for his birthday in September.
