Almost Thirty

That's how I keep thinking about my birthday this year: I can't seem to help it. I know twenty-nine's really not that old but it kind of seems like it. To tell you the truth I don't really know where the last five years went. I still feel like I'm twenty-four. But obviously I'm not. When I actually think about it, I'm happy about where I'm am right now. And I'm excited about what the next year will bring.

They said I wasn't supposed to smile but I did a little anyway.

Our babysitter is coming over in a little while and I'm going to head out with my sister Jan to go shopping for baby stuff (No, not for me: she's expecting at the end of the year) and then have lunch. Then it's back home to look after E until N comes home from work and then I'm off to woodworking class (we're going out for dinner this weekend).

All in all, it should be a great day.
