In three sleeps I will officially be a grown up. How's that you ask? Aren't I a college graduate? Haven't I been married for almost 8 years? Haven't I attended my 10th high school reunion? Don't I have 3 precious children and drive a minivan? Yes, yes and yes to all of the above.
But on Sunday, Septemeber 16th, 2007 I will be THIRTY years old. 3-0. A new decade. A new grouping when I fill out forms. A new age category in the half marathon results. Oh my.
Do you know that Alan Jackson song "Remember When"? There is a line where he says 'Remember when 30 seemed so old. Looking back its just a stepping stone.' I know he is right yet it seems incredible that I am 30. I feel 22. I thought that was old when I was marrying Mr. Brick. Or maybe 25, like when I had #1. But nope.......its really here..........the big 3-0.
Happy early birthday to me. And yes, I will quit my belly-aching now ;)
