GETTING OLDER ONCE MORE (098/365 DAYS, 3.0)



I'm late even for my own birthday... 
Yes, 
you read it right!! 
I had to fix the scheduling of this post to make it appear like this was done on time, 
but let it be known that I wrote this only the morning after...


I had a pleasant surprise when I opened my browser 
to find cakes and candles aplenty. 
Me thinks Google knows already too much about me...


I went to work, 
Yeah... 
I know... 
I usually take the day off... 
Oh well!! 
Too much work. 
I just couldn't... 
Went to work under the rain, 
which was a bummer. 
Talk about raining on MY parade!! 
I guess Mother Nature doesn't use Google 
or she would have known this was my birthday. 
My bet is that she would have thrown in a snowstorm, 
if she had known... 
Can't complain, 
aside from the usual back pain that worries me despite the meds, 
work went well, 
and other matters too!!


I had no plans for the evening since I'm working the day after, 
but there will be some later on this week, 
hopefully!! 
But I did treat myself to a glass of wine and a pastry, 
no candles!! 
AND NO SINGING!!! 
Comes a time when birthdays are not such a big deal anymore, 
but a discreet "Happy Birthday" said by friends is still heart warming. 
That's how I like it anyway... 
But after all of that wine and sugar, 
after a long day's work, 
this was just too much for me: 
I WENT TO BED!! 
YUP!! 
I went to bed early on my own birthday. 
Where are the days when I could party all night 
and still carry on with work and all of the rest?!? 
I dunno...


I edited my pics in the middle of the night, 
full of caffeine and nicotine, 
rushing a bit to write this 
as it will soon be time to go back to work. 
Welcome to reality!! 
But someone promised me a chocolate pancake for lunch today 
so that'll be another sugar rush!! 

Now progressing through my fifties, 
I look back at the long road traveled so far 
and all I can say is that I haven't traveled a straight road, 
no pun intended... 
Often bumpy or even hazardous, 
I've often lost myself and typically, 
never really asked for directions, 
always doing things my way, 
stubborn as I am!! 
But I've learned a few things from my mistakes, 
like self-respect, 
and the value of friendship. 
They're both easy to lose 
and great to cherish. 


Off I go for yet another day, 
and I can already smell that chocolate pancake from here!! 
:D~
