Another Year Older

Yesterday was my 31st birthday. This is the first time in 8 years that I have worked on my birthday. Maybe that is because overall I like my job and I only work 4 hours a day. :) There was a "rainout" on Mike's job, so he was home when I got home. What a pleasant surprise! :) We pretty much just chilled for a few hours and watched TV/Netflix and then my parents picked us up and we went out for some Chinese food. Yum. :) Then back home for more TV. :) I love relaxing birthdays. It was a good day overall.

I am still not enjoying that I am in my 30's. I had a really hard time with 30 last year. I am starting to accept my 30's, but I always thought that I would be done having kids (or at least started) by the time that I turned 30. Not so much. Ugh. Oh well. I told my mom last night that I am almost the age that she was when she had me (her third and final child). I just feel like I should be a mom by now. I want to have energy for my children and I feel like I am losing a little bit of energy each year. Heck...I will be 40 in 9 years! Ugh. With how fast time flies....that is SCARY! :( Anyways, happy birthday to me! I am going to make the best out of being 31 and hopefully my dreams of being a mommy will come true this year so I can actually feel like I am in my 30's. :)

I feel the same as you, I thought by now I'd have a child/children of my own BUT I guess that just isn't quite the plan. Happy belated birthday to you, glad your day went well :-)

Happy birthday! I felt the same way about 30 and 31...a reminder of what I haven't accomplished. Being a mom by this age was a given, or so I thought! I'm glad you had a nice day!
