Happy Birthday To Me

August 28, 2009

The Best Birthday Present EverYup.  It’s my birthday!  Good times.  If only it was filled with Transformers, M.A.S.K., G.I. Joe, and LEGOs like it used to be.  That would be great wouldn’t it?  We could sit around and have wars.  Then once your team was all dead you could play War, the card game, work on the Rubix Cube, or go build a fort out of anything and everything.  But I guess times change and people expect us to grow up.  Ha.  Yeah right!  You all can do your growing up thing and I’ll go build a fort out of LEGOs or my Transformers and Micro Machines to live in!

But I guess part of us does grow up.  This is my last birthday before I turn 30.  Wow.  I’m really glad I don’t feel old enough to be 30.  I hope I don’t next year either.  This also marks my last birthday prior to children.  Not really sure how that’s gonna affect my birthday, but I would be stupid to assume that it wouldn’t.  Wait!  Maybe that means I get an extra gift from the kid too!  Of course then they will start making macaroni pictures in Sunday School and that will be my birthday gift.  Those are super sweet and cute and all those other girl words that tend to follow super.  It just will be different.

So here’s to 28 completed years of life.  Bring on the next one!  I have a feeling it will be a very eventful one.

PS – Comments on the blog are a great birthday present for those of you that weren’t gonna buy me something!

    Brooke… happy birthday…I do suspect that however old you are, you will always remain an 8 year old boy inside… I still see that in my 40-somethin’ boy, at home! And from you, I expect nothing less!!!
