on the eve of the day of my birth...

Tomorrow I will be 28 years old. I should really thank my parents, ya know? I was just thinking about birthdays past and realized something that I had never even noticed before, at least not conciously. Maybe you all do this as well? Every year on my birthday I make some declaration for the forthcoming year. I can't remember all of them, but I know I've done it for at least the last 10 years. Before I tell you what my declaration is for this year, let me tell you about the one that sticks out in my mind the most-

The year I turned 24 I made the declaration that this would be the year for change, BIG change. I didn't know what kind of change, but change would be happening in my 24th year. While half the year ticked by and nothing changed I began to wonder what I was imagining when I made that declaration. Then it happened. Just 4 months shy of turning 25 (and I whole new declaration!) change happened so fast it made my head spin and my world was never the same again. I met my future husband. Talk about change, eh? Then I was 25, and I have no idea what my big declaration was that year, or 26 or 27, for that matter. I wonder if they came true?

Now just a day shy of 28, and you want to know what my big declaration is for this year? To start an anti-aging regimen and stick with it. My inner feminist weeps.

the different between husbands & wives

Or, at least - the difference between me & my husband...

Needless to say, the devastation that recently hit Japan is... well, devastating. (I'm really not trying to be funny). In the wake of said devastation my husband has decided we are totally unprepaired if something similar happened where we live. So you know what that means, right?! That means we are now the proud of owners of these puppies, and we also have 24 cans of tomato soup sitting in our pantry. This is just the beginning. I agree with Ted, we should be prepared incase a disaster hits and we have to be self-reliant for a while. The problem with this kind of planning is that it can go so deep. You can quickly become consumed with preparedness & just generally freak yourself (or, myself) out.

Without going even furthur into that stuff, because I can seriously go on & on, I'll just share this little realization I came to this morning:

My husband is planning in case of serious Nuclear fall out or something along those lines. I, on the other hand, am preparing for the Zombie Apocolypse.

My poor, poor husband.

love, love, love

Happy Valentine's Day!

Remember that today is about LOVE. I've always thought of today as the perfect day to express your love to all of the loved ones in your life, not just your spouse or significant other.
