Tomorrow I turn 29... Ugh I am old!



Tomorrow as you all know by now I am turning 29. I am happy about this but also I feel extreme sadness to be in my last year of my 20's. I want to share some Up's and Down's of my 20's. All in the last 10 years I went from working as an EMT to becoming a Nanny. I went from being a single mom of one to a Married Wife of two beautiful children. THE RED SOX WON THE WORLD SERIES! I went from living with my parents never wanting to leave to finally moving out! I gave birth to my daughter. When I turned 20 I was a single mother to a 2 year old. I had to buy a mini van! I met Big Papi. I faced the hardest decisions of my life. My Father was in a 3 week coma where his life was in my hands on what I decided at the age of 26. I had two major surgeries where I had parts of my skull removed on each side. I had a golf ball sized tumor removed from my left ear canal. I was diagnosed with sever depression and bi-polar when there are days that I can't even drive my car. I was put on medications that ultimately saved my life physically. I broke my very first bone, TWICE. My son turned into a preteen. My daughter started preschool. My son starts middle school. I got my amazing dog Louise. I have gained unbelievable friends and threw away the ones I don't need. I have lost my Grandfather.I lost my favorite Uncle My God Father. I kept my Dad.
There is lots of wonderful things I remember that I have done. There is also sad things I wish I didn't have to remember. All in all I am excited to be 29 to try and make this last year of my 20's kick ass. But scared to DEATH about entering my 30's in a Year 2 hours and 8 mins.
My 30's will bring a bigger family, a high school graduate, a new job (unless they pop out more babies) and I am sure many many more things.
I guess all I can do is sit back and watch, live, learn and love everything I have.

Happy Birthday! And you ain't old yet :) I remember when I was 28 and a younger girl about 20 I think, said "I hope I look as good as you do when I am your age" HA! I guess she thought I was old. Let me tell you time flies - it is certainly a vapor as the Bible says. I am now a grandma to 13 almost 14. Anyway, thanks for the follow. I am following you back from http://www.fabulousfindsforfamilies.com/ - also have another blog: http://mlockhartfam.blogspot.com/ Have a great day!

Happy belated birthay! Looks like you are still celebrating though with your giveaways. Thanks for following my blog. Following you back. And by no means is 29 old, I am 36 and although I feel old at times, I know that is not old either. Some good times I am sure lie ahead.
