My son and sister-in-law both celebrated birthdays in the past week. My son turned 15, and my sister-in-law quipped that the closer she gets to 40, the older it sounds. (gulp) I guess age is catching up with me, because for his birthday, we took our son to dinner and a movie. We saw The Avengers, what else? I waited too long to get the tickets, and even though it was playing every 20 minutes, I couldn’t find a showing with decent seats until the 10:30 show. So we went to the late movie, and got home after 1:00 am. 1:00 am used to be no big deal for me, but now? Now I prefer my pillow to late-night entertainment.
And the realization of that makes me feel incredibly old and boring. I think I’ll make myself feel better by sharing some interesting things that happened during daylight hours recently.
Stuff I did this week:
Stuff I didn’t make but wish I had:
Remember the song “Deep Purple?” This is WAY better.
It should never look perfect. It’s a rule.
As if I needed another reason to buy strawberries.
I already loved brownies. This was completely unnecessary.
Stuff I’m doing next week:
Orange cream is a classic.
So is lemonade.
If you read the book, you’ll have no doubts about what treat I’m serving for Mother-Daughter book club.
My good friend may actually get the cookies I promised her months ago.
If I don’t work really hard to stay young, age will creep up on me like quicksand. Next thing you know, I’ll be listening to 80’s music and eating dinner at 4:00 pm. Which means I’ll be staying up until 1:00 am again tonight, just on sheer principle.
