Hi everyone! I hope you’re doing well. 9/11 will always be a bittersweet day for me. Today I’m celebrating my 35th birthday with family. Yikes, yea 35 is here…one of the ages I didn’t think I’d ever reach! I hope 35 is a year of many changes, especially in my career and life in general. I don’t feel well today but I’m going to take some meds in a bit. I keep thinking about the “Sex and the City” episode when the girls go to Atlantic City to gamble for Charlotte’s 35th birthday. Like me, she had mixed feelings about turning 35. It just seemed like a scary time for her! She felt young and old at the same time. I couldn’t find the episode but I thought this one was funny. I couldn’t resist not including the theme song!
I remember the times when my parents let me have friends over for my birthday. They would let the neighborhood girls spend the night. They would sometimes have my birthday parties at local pizza places. The homemade cakes and three-flavored ice cream are still unforgettable. My favorite cake as a kid was the marble chocolate cake my mom or grandma made. Ahh, to go back to being a kid instead of going to work and paying bills. My parents were right when they said to quit trying to act like an adult too soon because I wasn’t going to like it that much. OK I’ll admit it…I don’t always hate it! A thank you goes out to my blogging buddy, Tracy for mentioning my birthday here.
I’ll never forget my birthday 15 years ago when I turned 20. It seems like everyone remembers September 11, 2001 like it just happened a few days ago. In case you want to check it out, me and others from around the world told our stories to a news web site in London called Metro. You can check it out right here.
Where and what were you doing on 9/11/01? I was a sophomore at New Mexico State at the time. I was getting ready for class until I saw and heard what was going on via the alarm clock radio and TV. Needless to say, my classes and birthday were canceled that year. I spent my 20th birthday watching the news all day and night. I’ve always had a sweet tooth but that tragic day was an exception. We’ll never forget the day.
