So yesterday, Sunday, was my 37th birthday. Yes, 37th.
Originally I was going to write a "woe-is-me-I-am-37-and-too-old-to-have-a-baby-and-I-don't-want-to-celebrate" post, but I was too lazy to write anything, and I guess the urge to do that has past. So no woe-is-me birthday post I guess.
My birthday day was pretty uneventful. The church conference all day Wednesday through Saturday pretty much pooped me out. But I had a great time, and was pretty encouraged from it. Babe and I slept in on Sunday and went to the later church service. Then I was craving Chinese food, so we went to one of our favorite Chinese restaurants. We came home, took a nap, and later went out and cashed in on my free birthday coffee from Caribou Coffee. We skipped dinner and instead, went and bought ourselves a small strawberry shortcake for my birthday "cake". We ended my day with a chick flick - we watched "The Ugly Truth" at home.
All in all, it was a nice, lazy, relaxing birthday. I got multiple phone calls from my family, calling me up from Asia. It was fun having my nieces and nephew sing me a birthday song. Actually we woke me up in the morning! I also spoke to my mom and dad, and my brother. It was a pretty uneventful day, and one that I am grateful for. I wasn't in that much of a mood to celebrate anyway. But still it was nice.
So yes, I am 37. I used to think I was still in my mid thirties, just a tad bit over the dreaded 35 where fertility starts declining. Well, there's no denying it now. I'm much more closer to 40 than 30, or even 35. But that's life. And that's my life.
It's all attitude isn't it? It's deciding WHAT I'm going to do with my life, and HOW I'm doing to live it that matters now.
Yeah.... if only I'm as positive and I'd like to be.
Oh, and yes, I am still planning on a 200th post / 100th follower/ birthday giveaway. I still have to decide what to give away. I'll keep you posted!
