One Year Older and Wiser Too

Despite all the verbal hints, written notes, and ripped magazine pages strewn around our house, my husband did not send me to a luxuriously furnished cabin on a remote island with the option of ordering takeout for all three meals.  Maybe next year.

I can't complain, though, because I was given a much better gift.  For the first birthday in two years, I am not pregnant!  Let me explain why this is important.

  • Because my belly isn't abnormally large, I can fit into a sexy outfit and head out to my restaurant of choice.

  • Because I am not sick, I can actually eat the food at that restaurant.

  • Because I don't feel weepy, I won't cry because I can eat the food.  (Okay, maybe I will.)

  • Because I'm not exhausted, I will not fall asleep during the movie I choose for tonight's fun activity.

  • Because my body doesn't hurt, I will not have to sit down every 5 minutes to rest.

  • Finally, because my moods are somewhat regular, I will not be upset with my husband.  I think this is Ben's favorite reason.

I am not quite sure who to thank for this fabulous gift (because I obviously do NOT practice abstinence), so I will send a million thank you cards to God.  I think He can redirect them if needs be.

Congratulations to the three that correctly guessed my age.  If you promise to still be my friend, I will tell the rest of you.


Did you promise yet?


All right.


I am 23.


Don't hate me.


To honor my birthday, I am closing the comments.  Now go do something fun!!
