Happy Birthday To Me
The countdown to 40 is on!!! Okay, so to be honest this website has been on my heart and mind to put together for years. I’ve always had a reason or two-hundred to not go through with it. I had a blog years ago and I felt it lost its direction. I should have stuck with it, but completing my degree became a priority. I was what professionals in higher ed like to call a “non-traditional” student. Meaning I was damn old as an undergraduate. I was already married with two sons when I finally completed my undergraduate degree. I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything. Well…maybe the winning Powerball numbers, but for the most part it was one of life’s most satisfying experiences. The look on my grandparents’ face was all I needed. My then seven year old looked at me like I was pretty damn cool, too. Of course he’s now 15 and not nearly as cute as he was when he was in elementary school. Anyway, I am in the process of putting together a nice list of things to do before I am 40. Now, look…keep in mind I work in education; as does my husband. So DO NOT suggest we go on a trip around the damn globe. Not happening. Plus I’m afraid to fly. Yeah…I know it’s ridiculous and I drive in one of the craziest cities in the U.S., but it’s my kind of crazy. Air travel makes me uneasy. The flights I’ve taken weren’t bad, but I’d prefer to not be on an airplane for longer than 5 hours. In addition to having an aversion to air travel, the bathroom situation concerns me as well. So now that you all know I will be 40 in exactly a year from today, completely unsophisticated in the ways of travel, and slightly off my rocker about bathrooms…this means we are family! Holla at me and give some suggestions.
