*Devoured the most succulent juicy and fat cheeseburger with bun and all. Can I tell you that this must be what being in heaven is like. I can die today and be the happiest dead 50-year-old!
*Congratulated Diana Nyad on her epic swim which occurred on the same day that I reached my destination (my 50s)! Her swim (not unlike my swim), should be an inspiration to all to never give up!
*Enjoyed the most beautiful exotic orchid I have ever seen – it being a birthday gift from an amazing and dear friend.
*Had to pee a lot. Nobody warned me that 50 meant wee wee!!
*Found out that I am a Rabbit, while eating at a new chinese restaurant.
And enjoyed their killer Mai Tai!
*Tricked my family and friends and put fake piercings all over my face – including a bull ring in my nose! They looked so real – I highly recommend doing this. It was interesting to see their reaction and how uncomfortable they felt to even look at me. My poor mom thought I had finally fallen off the edge and was ready to hospitalize me. LOL.
*Blown out a lot of candles:
*Received my first Alex and Ani bracelet from my beautiful daughter! It’s the Mom one. 🙂
*Gotten myself a new giant piece (age 50 and over) jigsaw puzzle.
*Sang at the top of my lungs – while using the facilities.
*Received a SPECIAL “gift” from another dear friend that I cannot really talk about. Just trust me, it will help with my RA.
*Gotten lot’s of kisses and hugs and lovin’ from wonderful people.
I leave this weekend for a girl’s getaway with 3 other crazy Latinas and then the following Sat “an event” is taking place in my honor.
If you had told me all of this before, I would have skipped all that swimming and would have flown on the fastest jet – to my 50s!
Except that, since you’ve been gone (a whole 3 days) my dearest 49, I’ve been informed that I need a root canal! NOOOOOOOOOOO!
