9 days

There's 9 days left. I really like 25. Just as much as I liked 24, 23, 22, and even 21. But 26, although still mid-twenties, is almost to the late-twenties. Really? Can I really be almost 26?

Wasn't I just celebrating my 16th birthday a few months ago? Ten years goes by so fast.

This does not mean that I am dreading my birthday. You know me, birthdays are my thing. I think they should be a huge deal, full of presents, and surprises, and no cleaning or chores, or work. In my mind, it is a day to celebrate with family and friends, if possible, and do something out-of-the-ordinary.

I am definitely not dreading becoming 26, I am just a little in shock that I am going to be 26. That sounds old. My brothers are 20 and 22; that seems so young, you know, since I am at the mature age of 26.

I have never really dreaded my birthday, mostly because I don't think of the age, just the party.

What about you? Has their been a birthday that you just dreaded? What age was it?

Heather I always dread your b-day...not because you're getting older though. It just happens to be shared with the sugar loaded-make your teacher go crazy-give me more-no thank you holiday. Thank goodness it's on a Saturday!

All kidding aside, Best Wishes!

35. Because it's less than 10 years away and that's 'late-summer' of your life! Plus no one will be pumped about it because it's not 30, 40 or 50.
