Today is my birthday! Did you know that? Just like last year, I purposely kept that information off my Facebook just to see who might send greetings. I find it rather meaningless when Facebook obnoxiously broadcasts your birthday to everyone and they send obligatory messages.
Yes, it's my birthday. I am the 5-0 now. I really can't believe that. I just don't feel it! Well, I mean, I have the achy joints and those types of things to remind me I'm old, but in my mind and actions I just don't feel it! I had a really hard time when I turned 45 because even if I live to 90, at that point my life was half over. I don't have that with 50. I'm actually rather cheerful. Maybe it just hasn't really sunk in yet. As I mentioned to my sister today, now it seems to have taken on the idea of 'One year closer to retirement!' lol
Came home from work this evening to find this cake waiting for me. There were some fun gifts but I'll wait till my day off to get some decent pictures. I'd love to natter on more about my birthday but this old lady is pooped tonight. I'm heading off to bed now.
Only one more day of work!
And then I'm off till next year!
Would you like a piece of cake?
