I just Googled "at what age are you considered old?" There were a LOT of different answers. Most people don't think old age starts until at least 50, but many answered 60 or 70. A lot of thoughts were along the lines of "you are only as old as you feel" and I would tend to agree with that. In that case, I do feel old, but I most definitely wouldn't call myself elderly! Ha! My body just hurts a lot these days.
Any time you Google something, it also brings up a list of related searches. One of the suggested topics was "at what age are you considered a cougar?" The answer is (drumroll........) 40! So while most people don't consider you OLD at the age of 40, you DO enter cougar status! Not that I'm on the prowl or anything.
So, how am I celebrating my birthday? Remember The Cousins? Well, I am going to their daughter's first birthday party. Her birthday was actually yesterday, but the party is today. We also have a wedding that we are supposed to go to and a college softball double header that we would like to go watch. The wedding is a softball girl that we coached a few years back, and the softball game features a few of the girls we coached that just graduated and are now playing in college. All these things scheduled on my birthday! We decided to go to the birthday party.
Tony made me a birthday cake this morning and gave me a card with the babies "signatures." My first birthday with babies to help me celebrate! Nothing better. Other than that, it will be a pretty mild day with no big fan fare except for the one year old cousin's party.
Oh, we are making a trip to Costco on our way home from the party. Nothing more exciting than buying diapers! Actually, it IS pretty exciting that we have to, considering all the years we did NOT have to. :)
Selfies with my babies from this past week. They haven't quite figured out yet that you can actually smile for a selfie, regardless of all the funny faces and noises I made trying to get them to!
