33 Things to Ponder as I Gain Another Grey Hair and Another Year

On my 33rd birthday, I thought I would enlighten you on the things that I have pondered recently as I light another candle on the cake!

  • I was born to teach.
  • I have learned a lot from 8 year olds, like cheese doesn't go well on Cheerios (maybe that was from the 4 year old-I don't remember).
  • Thank goodnes ballot measures 66 & 67 passed!
  • The best thing I have ever done was have my 2 sons!
  • Yeah...that rhymes ;)
  • They will be great human beings!
  • I wish I could do more for people of Haiti. Money just doesn't seem like enough anymore.
  • It is truly a gift to be born American, even though I don't always like to admit it.
  • Politics STINK

  • I am a hopeless gets me into trouble sometimes!
  • Why do I reread a book 2 or 3 times before I move on to the next?
  • Could I travel to the 18th Century and handle it?
  • I could if I was guaranteed to meet my own James Fraser!
  • God will not give me more than I can handle...I hope;)
  • There is always a reason. It may not be what I want, but it is what is.
  • Tent camping with my family, might just be my favorite summer vacation!

  • I can be technologically savvy.
  • I love long island iced teas
  • Should I run a half-marathon this year?
  • I will travel to Scotland before I turn 40 ("hint hint-Amanda")
  • Friendship truly is a gift.
  • So are sisters.

  • Hmm...what would I do differently if I were 20 again?
  • I drink an ice cold Coke at 3p.m. everyday.
  • Gravity really does bite!
  • They aren't wrinkles, they are laugh lines I tell ya!
  • I hate house work, especially laundry
  • Laughter really is the best cliche, but so true!
  • Am I smarter at 33?
  • I can't believe it is 2010. I always thought it was way too far away to think about.
  • Where does time really go?
  • What will the year bring?

  • Mostly, I think, WOW...I really am another year older! What an Amazning Woman!

Thank you for playing a part in my 33 years of life.


  1. 33 looks wonderful on you and yes you are smarter, smart for many reasons but highest among them is knowing yourself. Treating yourself to a coke everyday, knowing true pleasure is two of the most beautiful boys ever and rereading a really, really good book! I do believe you could handle the 18th century because you have always shown me you can handle anything. Love you lots and happy birthday!!

  2. Oh...I loved reading this! It was a peak into your mind and what could get better than that?
