Tomorrow, I say good-bye to 31.

Not sure why I am so weirded out by this. I got through 30 ok once it happened. 31 wasn't so bad. But, for some reason, I'm slightly wigging about 32. It may be that the years just keep going and going, faster and faster. I get carried away sometimes with the numbers.

I've been living in Florida for a third of my life. I have been driving longer than I wasn't driving. When I've lived double my life now, I will be 64. And then I think about how fast my life has gone so far and I know the next 32 years will fly by too.

I know age is just a number and all that good jazz, but really it's not. There are things you can get away with at 25 that you can't at 35. Maybe it's just a vanity thing, but I look at pictures of me even 5 years ago and I look so much younger, more fresh faced, less tired. I don't want to be a teenager again. I think I would like to relive my 24th year though. ha ha Right after I lost 20 pounds and before I was pregnant with Peyton.

I think I am just feeling blah lately. We leave on Monday for our cruise. 8 days and nights in the Western Caribbean. Belize, Costa Rica and Panama. I. Can. Not. Wait. I think 8 days of not much responsibility will do me good. Time to just hang with my family and friends. Have a frosty beverage or two.

See ya on the flip side!

Okay - two comments: 1. You will definitely have more than "a beverage or two". If you don't, there's something wrong with you. 2. I felt the same way about 32. It's just one of those weird, mean nothing birthdays, and it just feels old. But we're not old. Yet.

I agree with time moving faster now. I HATE IT!

But happy birthday baby! You're a goregous 32 and you'll be a gorgeous 64 one day.

I love you!!

Ok, so it keeps weirding me out to see a link on my blog to your post titled, "Goodbye" and you haven't posted since then. Are you really gone? :)
