the ‘before i’m 30’…list…

I feel old.

Where is my spritely self?

Hidden, probably, behind the bags under my eyes. Oy.

I really can’t believe I’ll be the big 3-0 come February.

That realization FREAKS. ME. OUT.

I’m not *almost 30.* I’m still a kid. I still like coloring books and playing on the playground and summer vacation (!!!!!!) (whatever happened to that, anyway, real world? FAIL).

I guess that’s why I now *have* a kid. So I can do all the cool stuff and not look like a moron.

Getting old(er) is scary. There are still so many things I want to do. I never even MADE a “to do before I am 30” bucket list. Oops? Granted, I had one in my brain and having a child was one of them so…check that one off. Wait Β second…..if memory serves me correctly…I did make a list…lemme see if I can find it….

Yes!

Right where I left it…in my wallet, collecting dust and never even looked at except the day I made it…and maybe the next day after that…however many years ago…because I don’t even remember…I don’t even think I’ve shown this to anyone before – including Tim – so consider yourselves privileged.

The post its are a recent addition.

Obviously…failing. Miserably.

Maybe I should make a new list…the ‘before I’m 35 list’ that includes improving my penmanship because WOW that definitely says “three” on the pink post-it flag corresponding to the marathons…yes. A new list…I’ll do it right after I’m done playing with this cutie-patootie……..which means when he’s 18.

And then I guess at that point I’ll be over 35…wait. Isn’t there a rule somewhere that says I get to keep celebrating my 29th birthday?

    I dunno, I reckon you have the “learn to take a picture’ thing sussed judging by the output here. I’d change that one to a tick πŸ™‚

    Technically, you can *take* a picture. Just sayin’ πŸ™‚

    Also, I turned 30 in May and I am pretty much still 22 in my head. I’m going to stay there for awhile.

    Yes, you get to celebrate your 29th Birthday from this point out – just the anniversary of your 29th Birthday. For example, JZ is celebrating the 1st anniversary of his 29th birthday this year.

    I agree about the “picture taking.” Hellooooo!!!! AWESOME photos come from you. Maybe you’d like to hone your craft, but you have skill. Recognize it! Also, be happy you have a “To Do Before I’m 30” list. I’ve started a “Bucket List”! How’s that for old? πŸ˜‰
