Happy Birthday to Me and Happy UnBirthday to You!

...or if today is your birthday then happy birthday to you as well.

Yep another year older. Nope don't feel it a bit. In my mind and body I'm 10 years younger (don't ask me how I have these teenage children, I have no idea).
I don't have aches and pains people complain about when they get older (except aches and pains from running low fevers and feeling crummy today, those don't count). I don't have gray hairs (and Madames Loreal and Clairol will never tell if I ever got them). I have energy to keep up with my kiddies (I will have more energy once I finish losing weight and get checked for adult asthma...I don't run out of steam just breath and it's not from being out-of-shape).
In my twenties I was told "Just wait till you hit 30, it's all down hill from there." Well, this hill must actually be a huge plateau, because I have yet to see the other side. I'm sure as I go through my 30's and here "Just wait till you hit 40." Then the same in my 40's. Age is just a number, I truly believe you are only as old as you feel. Also I believe if you feel younger then you are it transfers itself to your face. Eating well, exercising and wearing sunscreen help too.

So I'm 33 now. What have I accomplished in the past year? Well I've finished 2 semesters plus a summer semester of classes, making me that much closer to my undergrad degree. I've been constantly thinking of changing my major...well have to see if I can bring my science grades up. I don't know because I do enjoy nutrition classes, but I really want to be more hands on with patients then a dietitcian is...I may just go with my original...get a degree, pass MCAT, apply to med school.
It's been a rough year with my daughter, lots of lows and a few highs with that one. Welcome to the experience of having a teenage daughter. Apparently those Hallmark movies have it all wrong.
It's not been a perfect year, but I have to say it's been a good one. Every year that I can spend loving my Hubby and kiddies and having a great family is a good one.

Have a very merry Unbirthday!
