My friends think I have a somewhat delinquent personality. Like when I took a shortcut along the sidewalk at college. Oh, did I fail to mention I was driving my car at the time? Or the other time we (my BFF, Kathy & I) made a snowman & brought him inside our dorm for a couple of upper classmen friends. They didn't quite see the humor in having a 3' snowman outside their door, so they told us to get rid of him. So we sat him on the toilet. It took about a week or more of flushing to get rid of him.
I will be having a birthday in a few days. My cousin, who is 1 month and 6 days younger than I am teases me all the time about being OLDER. Her middle name is also Ann, but HER middle name DOES mean 'Trouble'. Today I got a few birthday presents from her 'cause she thinks she's all funny 'n stuff.

As you can see I will be the Big 5-0!! It doesn't seem like it. I don't feel like it. I certainly don't ACT like it. But it's true. I've heard that people have a hard time turning 40... or 50.... or 60 or whatever... Mine? It was when I turned 30. I was about 27 or 28 and I can remember a friend of mine had just turned 36 and I thought 'Wow, that seems so old!' For some reason 30 hit me quite hard. Now... HA, who cares? I certainly don't.
I have the best life. The best family. I am so happy with where I'm at with my life right now. I want for nothing, my husband spoils me like crazy. I love my job. I have amazing kids. I'm expecting great things for the next 50 years. Everything is going to be going so well, I have to create a little bit of trouble now & then to keep things interesting.
From now on this will be my mantra:
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming 'WOW What a Ride!'"How's your ride going, Trouble?
Bye! Love you! Have a good day, Dear!
PS: I had such fun with the last 'Blog Hop' that I'm linking up again!
