Birthdays

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 17, 2014, 9:40 AM

  I was thinking about birthdays this morning, because this coming Thursday I will turn 57 years old.

      The thought of turning 57 doesn't seem to bother me, but then I thought about how I was going to feel about turning 60 (which my husband did only 2 months ago).

Even though turning 40, and even turning 50, didn't really bother me too much, the thought of turning 60 (in a few years) has got me a little freaked out.

I kinda feel like I'm getting too old to be part of communities like Deviant Art, though in my head I feel no older than I did 20 years ago.

Weird, huh?

Well, regardless, I'm not leaving DA.  I've got too much invested, emotionally.

Here's another weird thing I've just thought of - why isn't birthays spelled birthdaies?

English is an odd bloody language, isn't it?

And please remember -

********** I'm joining in and asking you all to help feed homeless animals. All you have to do is go to this website theanimalrescuesite.greatergoo… and click the purple button that says 'Click Here for Free'. It helps feed rescue animals.

They are having trouble maintaining the quota they need to continue getting the free food for their rescue animals. :iconhappykitty-plz:





It's free to do, costs you nothing, but it helps all those poor little homeless beasties

Just one click every day and everybody is happy  ********** :iconpussycat:
