Wednesday:) What Day Is It? Why It’s My Birthday

11 Jan

“When I look in the mirror every morning, I don’t see an old lady. That’s because I’m old and I can’t find my glasses.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


Well, another year has come and gone, and I’m still here savoring every minute. I had a very nice birthday. I received a zillion happy birthday texts, calls, and comments on Facebook.

You know what the best part of getting old is?……. Yah! I don’t know either. But, I do enjoy all the presents and lunches and dinners and attention. I have so many friends, I think I’ll be able to eat free for the entire month.

My sons called, I got to FaceTime with the baby, I talked to Mom and my sisters, and so many friends. Diane took me to lunch and Kathy took me to dinner. Hey, I’m free tomorrow afternoon….just sayin’.

My granddaughter wished me a happy birthday. Well, she actually said, “Dabamanadabawa,” but that’s close enough.

It was a good day. And not to tell my age or anything, but I am now an official Medicare Card Carrying Senior Citizen.

      Thank you. Just getting around to my replies. It’s been such a whirlwind and blur. Mom was sick for so long, but now singing with the angels. Thanks again.

        Ya gotta be strong to grow old (isn’t that the biggest oxymoron you’ve ever heard?!!)
