It’ll be my birthday. I’ll be forty-three. As many often do, I have a tumultuous history with birthdays. I don’t know why, I try not to put any big expectations on the day. It’s just another day really, but I guess I do have certain expectations, which I find ridiculous about myself. I actually like getting older…well, I didn’t like it so much when we were struggling with fertility issues and time felt like the enemy, but with that exception I generally enjoy moving up the age check-box.
This year I’m scheduled to attend jury duty on my birthday though. Unless it’s cancelled, but being that it’s scheduled for that specific day doesn’t give me much hope, but I’m still hoping anyway, lol! I’m actually really bummed about it. I wish I was a better person, but I’m so annoyed. However, I’m doing my best to stay positive, and not dwell on it. It is what it is.
I’ve requested a quiet dinner at home, and some coconut cream pie for dessert. I finally did make my decision on which e-spinner I want, and I’ve put it on layaway through The Spinnery (Jodi is AWESOME!). I was hoping I’d be able to say it would be coming home for my birthday, but it’s looking more like October (maybe). Geez, I’m such a Debbie-Downer today. Birthdays can do that to a person I guess.
Do your birthdays bum you out sometimes? I’ll probably be over it by the time my birthday rolls around, jury duty or not. What kind of things do you like to do on your birthday?
