Happy Birthday to Me!


Well, I’ve blown out the candles on the proverbial cake.  I’m another year older and I’ve passed from my “early 30s” to my “mid 30s.”  I’m not sure how I feel about that.  I’m still single 😦 and no prospects for a “gentleman friend” in sight. 😦


Actually, I take that back.  This has been a pretty KICK ASS year because I left the teaching job in the state I hated and moved back closer to my family in my home state.  I took up running, I’ve lost about 25 pounds so far, and I am happier and healthier than I’ve been, well, ever!  I eat better, sleep better, take less antidepressants and exercise more.  I also paid off my credit card and only have about $6,500 left to pay off on my car before I am totally debt-free.  I enjoy my 40-hour-a-week job and have time to devote to getting, having and keeping a life outside of work!


Yeah, this year has pretty much kicked ass.  If my only complaint is that I’m single, I think I’m doing pretty damn good.  I need to remember that and be grateful for all the blessings in this season of my life!  ❤


A few other kick-ass people who share my birthday—

  • Alfred Nobel—Inventor of dynamite and founder of the eponymous prize
  • Dizzy Gillespie—Father of be-bop and cheek-puffer extraordinaire
  • Judith Sheindlin—Seriously, who doesn’t freaking love Judge Judy?!
  • Benjamin Netanyahu—Kick-ass prime minister of Israel
  • Carrie Fisher—aka Princess Leia and bun-wearer extraordinaire
  • Kim Kardashian—Wait..she doesn’t kick ass!  I do!

  1. I saw an exhibition on makeup and special effects in horror movies at Universal studios recently, and they said “All the knives we use in this demonstration are dull and plastic…like the Kardashians.” Hope you have a great year.
