48 and counting

Ok, technically, I am at the moment 47 and counting, but tomorrow is my birthday.  I don’t feel bad about turning 48, just puzzled – how did I get here?  Seems like just yesterday (some days anyway) that I was 18 and heading off to college.  Sigh.  Still, better to turn 48 than NOT.

Overall I don’t really think about my age.  It is just a number and I feel fine, so what’s the point in worrying about a number?  However, I am now seeing fellow high school classmates as grandparents – THAT makes me feel old some days.  I look at the grey and my hair and wonder how that happened.  LOL, then I remember I have two young children …

I hope that 48 is a good year for me.  I’m going to do my best to make it one of my best years yet!

Birthday celebrations

We celebrated two birthdays today – my son’s and my daughter’s.  He’s three now and she’s one.  It was a good day – hot, but good.  I think the heat index made it over 100 degrees.  So, we stayed inside and had cake and played with new toys.  It worked well for all the adults.  I’m afraid my son wasn’t impressed.  He really, really wanted to go out.

Where does the time go?  It seems like just yesterday he was just an infant.

Thinking about this week

Well, we should be getting closer to making some decisions about where to go from here with our son.  We’ve got a meeting on Wednesday afternoon with the people from the county to hear their recommendations.  I expect that it will involve the county school system, since this program that they actually work with only helps children up to the age of 3 and our son is now over 2 and a half.  We’ll see, I guess.

I am fairly nervous about it.  I’ve never thought of myself as “anti-government” but I just get nervous thinking about the county or any government agency making recommendations about my child.  What do they know – the government can’t take care of itself!  I’m going to try to reign that in and at least listen to what they have to say.  That much can’t hurt, I suppose.

The rest of the week should be ok.  I’m turning 38 this week; that is a bit depressing, but it is actually better than NOT turning 38, so I’m trying to keep it in perspective.  I get to visit with family later this week, and more than likely that will result in my husband and me being able to go out and have a nice, hot meal together.  That would be lovely.
