that's who...

I cannot believe that in a few days I will be 50 years old.
How the hell did that happen?
I know getting older beats the alternative.
I know that too many are 'denied' the 'privilege' of getting older.
But still...

I hated turning 'middle-aged'.
But now, I am on the other side of middle-aged unless I live to be 100+.
So being middle-aged doesn't seem so bad to me now.

I am trying hard to remember....what?...ummm...oh yea...
that 'Fifty is the new Forty'.


Though technically, I'm much better at 50 than I was at 40.

Things I can do at 50 that I couldn't do at 40:

  • Jog 5 km (average 4 days/week)
  • Walk 10,000 steps (or more) a day
  • Care less what people think of me
  • Speak my mind more
  • Give myself more 'me' time

And how am I spending my birthday week?
  • 2 weeks off work
  • Reflexology & Reiki appointments
  • Lunch dates with friends
  • Shopping trip to Calgary
  • Trip to the Calgary Zoo
  • Booking of hotel/flights to Victoria for our summer trip
  • Packing away my winter clothes
  • Getting behind my camera
  • Getting into my craft room
  • And there will be movies and snoozes as well...  :)

So I guess here comes 50 - ready or not...

Who Makes Up This Stuff?

cat's whiskers

 or cat's pyjamas
1. the cat's whiskers the cat's pyjamas person or thing that is excellent or superior

"The exact origin of the English saying cat’s whiskers is debated. Some believe that the term, along with the similar cat’s meow, have their origin in the girls' boarding schools of the 19th century."

Lonely girls in boarding schools haven't got anything over the "nothing better to do people" who make up ridiculous words and sayings for Urban Dictionary...

My opinion only of course...

Nothing Left To Do

In 5 days (Boxing Day) I take my tree down

December 21 and we have no snow (LOVE IT!)

Banjo surveying his land

Table set for dinner guests

Kitty glasses very acceptable for cat loving dinner guests
(clearly I did not iron my table cloth...)

A beautiful gift from cat loving dinner guests
(Thank you Carolynn and Frank!)

Decorations are sparkling

Baking done with most of it given away

Christmas bears overflowing my living room

Presents are all wrapped

There's nothing left to do

 I'm ready - are you?

Fact: I don't mind my popcorn a bit burnt...

Fact: Stanley hates burnt popcorn...

Money Well Spent

when you are married to a 'Social Butterfly'
and could not possibly care less about socializing and partying
and it's -42c (-44F) out and it's Office Christmas Party time
and all you want to do is go home...

you slap a $20 bill in his hand for a taxi ride home
give him a kiss goodbye
tell him to have a good time and remind him
"don't come home a drinkin' with lovin' on your mind"...

cause this anti-social introvert will be
curled up in bed sleepin'
under an electric blanket
wearing socks...

just sayin'...
