10 more days...

until I wave goodbye to my 20's. I can't believe it. I really can't. Somedays I feel really young. I am cool. I have an ipod, I know what Twighlight is, and who Jordin Sparks is. I have sung the songs to Camp Rock and know when High School Musical 3 comes out. When Ben and I were getting ready to board our flight back to Guam, we were talking to a woman and she asked us how many kids we had. When I told her 4 she was like "no way, you are too young to have that many kids." Of course Ben made a comment that I was almost 30 when the woman said, " I thought you were in your early 20's!" Nice huh? Or the guard who came to our door and asked if he could "talk to your parent". See still young. But then there are those times , that I start to feel my age like...

**falling asleep before 8:30
**complaining about the noise level in the house
**finding my favorite movies. ..in the classics, same goes with music
**when I tried to explain to my 15 year old neighbor who Keanu Reeves is,and she had no idea what Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure was.
** when one of the guys that Ben works with is only 22
**that when the kids find out I watched some of the shows they like, when I was little, and they exclaim, "wow it must be really old."
** When they tell me that people are really old, like 25
** or when Ethan tells me that I am almost old enough to be a Grandma
**telling the kids that the Jonas' brothers pants are too tight and them telling me that, that is "what is cool Mom"

I know, I know, 30 isn't that OLD, but I swear it was just yesterday that I was graduating from high school. Time really flew by. I almost have a child in the "double digits".

Ben says I just need to embrace my 30's...yeah we will see!

yep, embrace it and love it girl! Of course I only say that since I am already 30! Time does go by fast, it seems like just yesterday that Jonas was born and now I have four kids and my oldest is going into 1st grade and my next one into Kindergarten!

I am not really excited about turning 30 later this year either. Why is that? I hope you have wonderful plans for your birthday!!

I'm quite a bit further on than 30, but I love Bill and Ted. Enjoy your birthday when it gets here Marie!

I just turned 30 a few months ago. I thought I was going to lose it. Kind of the same thoughts you had but I did okay and really I am doing well with it. I think it is because I am where I want to be in life and I love my family. I makes a big difference. It was 25 that I really struggled. I think that was because we were still in school. Funny how we all struggle at different ages and for different reasons. But really it is just a number.

Happy Birthday Marie! I was wondering what recipes you are using for the freezer planning you are doing? I would love to see your recipes and plan a little ahead myself if you don't mind sharing! Take care and enjoy your big day!
