I guess I haven't been as appreciative of being only 59 as I should have been this year. It wasn't until I saw 60 creeping up on me that I realized the I would soon be 60 years old..... 60!! How did this happen? I don't feel 60. 60 is for old people. 60 is more than a half century.. 60 is creeping up on a full century.
I can't be 60.... I don't feel 60. (well, maybe I do, sometimes....)
I think because I've had such a fantastic year this past year, I was lulled into a false sense of security... Jeff and Colleen gave us our first grandbaby, KT, this year. JR married Ashley this year. We took a great road trip this year and saw some of the states northwest and got to visit with great friends in their "vacation home". I get to babysit as often as I want. John had another surgery and he recovered so quickly. I have had a fantastic year.
Well, I guess its inevitable I can't stop time. So, instead, I'm going out to celebrate tonight and enjoy being only 59. It's my last chance. See you tomorrow on the other side.
I'll tell you where I am tomorrow, too.
It was a big surprise!
(PS: I can't believe my family kept this from me... I never could find out what they had planned...it's not like me not to be able to sneak around and figure it out. I guess I am getting old.)
