20-10



What does this number mean, your probably wondering? I almost hate having to explain. Some close to me know! I can actually see my baby sister smiling in my head telling me "don't worry sis, remember that MR. B is 10 years older!"

Yes, you guessed it. If you add 20 and 10 that is what age I will be in 7 days. When did this happen? When did I become "older"? (I don't mean to sound offensive to my older family and friends.) Why is it that this particular age is so "scary" to turn? I haven't really heard a nice story or someone excitedly say they were turning "that" age. See I can't even say/write it.

I wonder how someone that still enjoys cartoons, high school style gossiping, giggling at "hot" guys that walk by could be 20-10. Aren't we supposed to be more sophisticated? I mean don't get me wrong, I pay rent, have car payments, more than enough credit card bills, own a dog that I need to take care of but....I still love watching the Flintstones. I know I am holding on!

I was chatting with my mom about it the other day and she told me I could be 54 instead! In other words, stop complaining and get over it! Mom's, there so helpful and honest!

Well, friends and family, the countdown begins to my "coming of age" and hope my last 7 days of being in my 20's is a blast! (not that I have much planned! I'm only working, working and uh oh yeah working!)

love love,

A not so sure we want this age Rambler

Age is a state of mind. You are as young, or old as you feel. Blah, blah, blah. You are turning 30 and each decade has it's advantages. I can't remember what those advantages are at 30 but it will come to you. In my 30s I was totally engrossed in family, career, stuff like that. Travel if you can, have kids if you want, just have a blast!

Well, I think turning 30 for our generation isn't quite the milestone as our parents. Fewer of us are married with kids and now 40 is the new 30. So, you're really just turning 21 b/c you want to be at least that age, right?

No worries! My sister is 30 (Yikes I said it!) and still watches spongebob squarepants and scooby doo. =)
