the BIG 29

Is it true? Can it possibly be true, that I am now 29 years old? Some days I feel very old ( for example: Harmony and her friend Riley, were talking about the "old"Star Wars movies, and " yeah the guy that plays Han Solo, I think he is like 90 now!" ugh! Others, I feel very young ( for example :" You look way to young to have been married for 9 years" or" you look way to young to have 4 kids". Then there is the man on espn, who was talking about Kobe Bryant, and how he lost some weight because he is starting to get old...and he had just turned 29. Perspective. It is all about perspective.

It has been a very busy 29 years. So who am I? let me tell you...

* I am a wife
* I am a mother
*I am a sister
* I am a daughter
* I am a proud Navy wife
* I am a spouse club president
* I am a success
* I am a failure
* I am old fashioned
* I am a budget buster
*I am lost frequently
*I am a mini van driver
*I am a talker
*I am a listener
* I am a friend
*I am a baked goods junkie
* I am still a Law and Order watcher
* I am a cryer
* I am a "love movie" fanatic
* I am a reader
* I am a writer
* I am a nap taker
* I am a crank-the-a/c-and-cuddle-under-blankets kind of a girl
* I am a grocery shopper
* I am a meal planner
* I am a lunch maker
* I am an enforcer of the rules
*I am stubborn
* I am a worry wart
* I am just me
