It's July 14th, 1985. A beautiful baby girl, with a head FULL of brown hair, enters this world. Drama and hilarity ensues!
Today, I am twenty-six years old. I have no idea why, but as I type that I'm suddenly feeling a bit.. old-ish. Like, it's hitting me that I'm seriously heading towards 30 now. I'm feeling like I actually have to be an adult, or something. It's not like I physically feel different, but for whatever reason the number 26 is making me feel a bit weird today. Strange! I've never given it that much thought before.
Where has time gone? 26? Hmm. Insanity.
I am having a really nice birthday so far! My week has vastly improved since the now-just-considered-hilarious debacle on Monday (life needs some stories, I suppose!). Today the family I nanny for surprised me, and drove me over to our mutual friend's house for a surprise birthday lunch! The kids were so excited to celebrate my birthday with me, and I really didn't expect such a big deal to be made. It was absolutely wonderful! (Thanks, MTM, so much!)
Tonight, Mr. Lock and I are laying low, and we're making dinner in together. He hasn't been feeling too well, this week. Tomorrow should be a blast, though! Going out for karaoke with a whole bunch of my best friends, to one of those places where you have a room just for your own party (rather than a karaoke bar filled with strangers, which is too intimidating for me!). I'm really looking forward to making a big deal out of my birthday, since I rarely do much of a celebration.
Life is good at 26, though it's much different than at 25. I like where things are heading though, as I work my way (hopefully SLOWLY) towards 30.
And all of you who are older than me, who are "PFFFT!"-ing at my feeling old nonsense, just you remember that you turned 26 once and felt this way TOO. :-P
Twenty-six?! Oh my.
