Happy Birthday to me–almost!
Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

I’ve had such a crazy week!

I rushed last week to wrap up Cochise and get it ready for publication. It released yesterday! That was exciting, and of course, I’ve been trying like mad to get the word out! (Here I am doing it again! LOL) Now, I’m working on a couple of editing projects. Oy!

And, my birthday is tomorrow. However, since we have relatives descending tomorrow for a visit, my family decided that the party was going to happen today. My dd’s been the party organizer, so I’m sure she’s planning lots of black things—cakes, etc., to tease me.

This morning, my mom said her party gift for me is something that’s likely to piss me off (I’m suspecting a Trump card or a MAGA hat), but she wanted me to have something special for my 60th—eek! I still can’t believe I’m that old! It must be true what they say about only the good dying young. πŸ™‚ Anyway, she gave my late grandmother’s diamond ring. I almost cried when she handed it to me. Grandma died last February, and we all still miss her very much.

We’ll have the party early afternoon; mom’s catering in a catfish feast; then all the kids and I are hitting the pool!

Anyway, I’m dressed up and ready. Thought you’d like to see what 60 looks like! I took about ten pics before I got ONE that didn’t make me want to vomit.

Ugh. I hate taking my pictures. My sleepy eye, crooked nose, BCGs (military acronym for Birth Control Glasses—which I wear for comfort rather than fashion!), my too-blonde-almost invisible eyebrows… I don’t mind the little bit of silver in my hair or the wrinkles. And it’s shadows, not a saggy neck. My neck’s just fine, thank you very much. But there you have it. Me. Hitting the big 6-0! Tomorrow, I’ll hit the benchmark, but it will be back to work!

    (I never realized how very much you look like your sister. Amazing)

    Thank you, Shirley. I’ll be closing out my desktop in a little bit. And LOL about looking like my sis. She’s the skinny one now. πŸ™‚

    Happy Birthday! I’m a little ahead of you – 63 on 12 July! I’m finding that my 60’s aren’t so bad. Got a grandson, just retired finally, no worries about pregnancy, spending some time traveling and enjoying myself with my hubby. Hope you find your sexy 60’s are fun and fulfilling!

    Eileen

    Eileen! I’m not worried about my 60’s either! I’m spending more time with the grandchildren, more time in my pool. It’s all good! πŸ™‚

    Keri & Jennifer! Thank you, ladies!

    Angelique, you’re very kind πŸ™‚
