They Say It’s Your Birthday!


Today I am 41. Officially over or under the hill, depending on who you ask. Most days, especially since having a kid, I feel practically ancient. All that crazy young ADHD energy that made me dance and go running in my youth, has been replaced by old ADD energy where I can’t be arsed to do anything but stare at my phone. But that’s ok, because you can’t dance or go on joint crushing runs forever, eventually you have to be content curling up in your house and watching it rain in December. (Still not used to that, global warming is weird)

My husband got my son ready this morning along with some coffee, and set off for work. I’m still in my pjs, still heating and reheating my one cup of joe. In other words, it’s basically like any other day. Can’t have any friends over and going to a restaurant is definitely out of the question. A few months ago, I hatched a birthday plan of putting my kid in daycare for the day so I could drive to Kingston and check out an archery range, but crazy high omicron numbers put the kibosh on that. Darn. However, people have been sending me really nice messages and of course posting on my Facebook wall, so I can’t complain too much! (I’ll save that for the middle of January when I’m losing my mind from boredom and winter blues, lol) Hubby got me a dash cam, because I mentioned it might be a good idea months ago. It’s funny he remembered. It was an idea I had after probably spending too much time on a Facebook Belleville community group. The topic of discord that day was a-hole drivers and I thought: ‘Hmm, maybe I should get a dashcam just in case’, and then promptly forgot about it. Well he can install it, because it’s my birthday and I’ll be lazy if I want to!

That’s about it for the day, but I will probably do some yoga or other exercise today. My “old energy” is sick of my phone and wants to get back in shape. No matter how old I get or how much covid rages outside, I still have a lot of life to live and plan on living it!
