Is my birthday. I will be turning 53. Eek! 53 is 371 in dog years.

It is also our wedding anniversary. I think it's been 5 years, but I can't even remember what year we got married in. I'm 371 after all and my memory is not what it used to be.

When we got married, I picked the same day as my birthday because it was a Saturday (convenient and a day off) and I thought it would make the date easier for Keith to remember. No, he gets the date sort of right ( 30th...31st?) but he always gets the month wrong and thinks it's in October.

I was trying to think of something fun to do tomorrow and have come up with nothing so far other than going out to dinner, which isn't that exciting since we do that a lot anyway. It's too hot to go on a day trip and we spent all of our money on fixing the car, so I think we'll just hang out at home until it's time to go out to dinner. I can't think of anything that I really need or want except for the 4th season of The Office on dvd, which comes out on Tuesday, so that will be my birthday present to myself.

When I think of birthday songs, the traditional 'happy birthday to you' song doesn't pop up in my head, but rather the old do-wop 'happy happy birthday bay-beee!'. Can't remember anything but that line though, so it just goes around and around in my head...'happy happy birthday bay-beee!'

So, I'll try and have a pleasant birthday and anniversary even though I am so very very old.

When we were kids I could never remember if your birthday was the 30th or 31st... I always remembered the month though. Ya think hubby would know you did NOT get married on Halloween or the day before.
Yikes ~ you are old.
I am only 329.
I am sssooooooo much younger than you.
