Guys I know its been FOREVER since I last posted, but it’s been madness the last little bit! But you have been the most amazing readers and so included in this post is not one, but TWO entries mashed together! ENJOY! And yes, I know its pathetic that I’m posting about November in December.
November is a weird month. It follows my favorite month, October. October is hard to beat. And it precedes December which has Christmas which I also love. So really, November just always falls short. On the other hand, at the very end of November is my birthday. And if you’ve read this blog before, you know how I DIG my birthday. But mostly November consists of the following:
Being cold ALL THE TIME.
Weather that is so crappy with rain and grey that it makes me want to do nothing but curl up in a blanket and sleep.
Or look out the window at the miserable weather and cry.
Its also the time when I leave for work in the dark and come home in the dark. If I work inside that day, my day has no sunlight. And that’s a bummer.
So this November 30th was my 30th birthday. A champagne birthday if you will. I was very excited for it.
That’s a lie.
I was excited because we were going away on vacation for my 30th somewhere sunny. The actual turning 30 thing?
Yeah, not really into it. It kind of hung over my head.
I feel my age started slowly creeping up on me in my late 20’s. At 29 the following incident occured.
And since I am one of the youngest in my friend group, trying to explain my general sadness about my approaching 30’s was always somehow a bomb waiting to go off.
Then it was my face. My once youthful face that now looked like a leather bag left out in the sun.
Suddenly shopping became a chore.
Shopping in my 20’s.
Shopping at 30
People started asking about my non-existant children, the fact that I still made a cartoon blog seemed immature and it doesn’t help that I have a 15-year-old sister that is on the cutting edge of pop culture.
Things I used to enjoy now just seem to irritate me.
But then my husband threw me a surprise party and I had my friends shower me with love and presents, and I had awesome readers like you say how much you enjoyed my blog and I realized that for the first time in forever I really love my job and my cat is starting to be more loving and I got to go somewhere beautiful and sunny for two whole weeks.
And that maybe 30 won’t be so bad after all.
So here’s to our childhoods! Our teenage years! Our 20’s and 30’s or 40’s or 50’s or 60’s or 70’s or 80’s or 90’s or 100’s! Let’s celebrate each decade we get because there is so much in life to be excited for!
And an early Merry Christmas Merry Kwanzaa and a late Happy Hanukkah to all my readers! And to everyone else, I wish the most happy of holidays!
