On turning 55.

i turned 55 on the 9th, and the 11th was our 32nd anniversary. We had the anniversary date loong before it became a week to be filled with tv shows about the Twin Towers and terrorists.

i'm weirdly happy to be 55--i can get the Tuesday Senior's discount at Ross Dress for Less, and i'm sure other good things will come. i'm even celebrating the big 55 by making a scrapbook called "55 Things About Me" which i will fill with a list of stuff i like, places i've lived, stuff like that. i am "marking the occasion" rather than letting it slide by.

So today i thought "wonder what i'll get if i do a Google search for images about age 55?" And here's the first thing i found, thanks to Gosnell Realtors--

i am SO done looking.

Those people gotta be 87. My Oma is 87 and she looks like that.

Well those people are DEFinitely not 55!

And thanks for the belated bd wishes--i am truly enjoying the process of the scrapbook. No search for perfection, just celebrating me. :-)

Okay, this picture doesn't just look old, it's BAD. It looks like the worst paint-by-number picture I've ever seen. We are NOT like that!!! (...are we?)
