I’ve joined the B.I.G. 5-0 Club! I cannot believe I am actually 50 years old as of yesterday! Once I hit 18, time seemed to pick up steam and has flown right on by me!
I did absolutely nothing special. As a fact, I made sure to change my birth date to unpublished on Facebook! I did not want to have a gazillion notifications going off constantly. Plus, I feel bad for failing at wishing others “happy birthday”.
I did have that set as a goal for this year . . . To make sure I send birthday wishes to all my family and friends on Facebook. I do not think I made it to the middle of January before I failed that goal! However, those who are important to me receive a ‘singing’ birthday text, a call or a private Facebook message.
Overall, it was a wonderful day! The pups and I took our morning stroll. It was only 3.7 miles. Barely longer than normal. We had just passed the .5 mark when my phone rings. It was my daughter. Because I was listening and talking through my earbuds, I didn’t recognize her voice at first. So, she and I chatted for the rest of the walk.
While I was talking with her my youngest called. I ended up having to call him back. My oldest son texted me a hair past midnight. They are such awesome children. I am SOOOO looking forward to seeing them on the 20th!
On Sunday (Day 112), I fiddled around the house for a bit. Finally, late in the afternoon, I decided to cut the grass. This time it was only 6.22 miles. I don’t know how I shaved off a mile, but I managed to somehow! After the grass was cut, I took the pups for a 3 mile walk.
Today (Day 114), it was a 3.69 mile walk. I have failed to do any workouts since last week. I’m trying to NOT come down hard on myself because I am walking the dogs which is something. I still have not planned any meals.
I have my 50th Birthday Party coming up. I feel myself heading into panic mode because there is so much to do around the house. I have to paint the family room, dining room, and living room. I have to clean all the windows in the house. I have to clean out/clear out the retreat as that is where my stepdaughter will be sleeping. I have to move the stove and refrigerator to clean the sides, behind and underneath them. I have floors to mop. I have curtains to vacuum in addition to the carpet. Then, of course, there is the outside. I do not have a green thumb. I know my yard is a disaster and I have to jump through my ass to get it looking decent.
PHEW! I’m exhausted just thinking about everything I need to do! And somewhere in all of this, I need to study for my CompTIA Network+ Certification Exam!
With that said, I must find something positive to end with . . .
