I'm 50 Years Old!

This Sunday, August 28th, I will turn 50 years old. 
In my mind I look only 42 but age is in the eye of the beholder.  This was made abundantly clear as the clerk at the clothing store asked if I would like to join their Tuesday Club for those 55 years and older.

I am not dismayed as I've always been one to embrace my age, a true believer that this is the first day of the rest of my life. 

It has been a great day here in the office where my peeps (of the Friday Forum) have gone above and beyond to help me celebrate this milestone.  A big THANK YOU for your love, friendship and appreciation of my goofy-ness!

Thanks to cousin Jenny for posting this video several months back.  I copied it over to save for today because this is EXACTLY how I feel.

Happy Birthday to anyone who shares this day, may you be as blessed as I am.

  2. Love this Molly Shannon routine ... reminds me of the fabulous Gilda Radner!
