This year, I 'm turning 22. Hmmmm......let me think back a little..........As a kid, every birthday was exciting for me. Even if I didn't have a party (which usually was the case) my mom still got cake and made sure the living room was decorated, and got the birthday girl at least one present. And pictures are a must. Here are some from my 8th, 9th, and 11th birthdays respectively.
She still does that for all of our birthdays, even if it means sending the birthday girl (me) to the store to get the required decorating items when she (the birthday girl) doesn't feel like it and insists that it isn't necessary. Oh, mommy :)
Thinking about it, I was glad to turn 19; I was almost out of the teens. I was excited to turn 20; I had finally left behind that wretched suffix '-teen' from my age. I was thrilled to turn 21; I was 'technically' an adult. But 22? That's something altogether different to me. It just sounds old! Lol....I'll get over it though. And get used to being 22. I guess.
I'm involved in the planning of an event called "Help for Haiti" on February 20. The event will be at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. I invite all who are in the area to come. It will prove to be a great event with musical performances, word
That's all for now. Have a great day!
