Thirty something....

I feel like a new woman! My old computer died, and after a couple of months computer-less, I am the proud owner of a brand spanking, shiny, new, black laptop! My very first laptop! I am head over heels in love with my new friend. The only thing that I need to get used to is the keys being so close together. While typing this, I have already backspaced, deleted and accidentally hit the caps lock key about 150 times. Oh well, practice will make perfect, right?

This post is just a little "Jill" writing. My camera is dead, the battery needs charging, so I thought I would just write. Not sure what about yet, but it will come.

Hmmm...okay. Hmmm...well.

Okay, so I turned 35 in January. Not loving the sound of this age. Actually, I think thirty six sounds better, younger somehow. Something about the "five"...just drags on for too long. I like short sounding numbers, like "six", or "two". I think that now is the time that I may start flubbing a bit on my age when someone asks. Oh, hush all of you people that think that we should be proud of our ages and be proud of our ever deteriorating bodies. You people make me sick. Just being honest here.

I still love God, and am grateful to be alive, but I don't have to love aging. It's just not so fun. The funny thing is that i feel so young. Well...until I say.."I'm thirty-five". Somehow that brings me down a notch or two.

And, is it me, or does it seem like everyone is all the sudden younger than me? It's like, okay, where did all of my "older" friends go?? I like being the young one in the group. Lately, it seems that I am the oldest by a year or two. Hmmm...what's up with that?

Life is flying by, and each birthday seems to come a little earlier every year. I guess this is life. Doesn't mean that I have to like it though. I find myself wanting to be around little kids a lot. It makes me feel young and spry. Maybe I will open a daycare in my home. (I can hear Lem now...hell to the no.) Oh well, just a thought.

Presley told me that I didn't look a day under thirty five. She is a girl that keeps it real, for sure. Like it or not.

aging (not-so) gracefully,

Girl, I know what you mean. The day I turned 35 Darren said "you're in your mid thirty's now"...nice!!!! If it makes you feel any better you don't look 35 at all!!!!

Maybe we can embrace this together!
Love you bunches,

My very young friend Jill.....

Just last week I was forty, the other day 50 and yesterday 62! Yes, time flies, so enjoy every day for what it is...even the days we decide to have pity parties. Each age is special and holds special memories.

Be glad you can see the keys on which you type even if they are close together....I am having trouble seeing without my readers!

Treasure your friendships and remember some are silver and others are gold.

Happy 35th!
