On turning 30. . .

It's true that tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life, but today is the last day of my twenties.

I bought three cases of paintballs on Tuesday and I got carded. The cashier wasn't sure that I was over 18. Which is ridiculous. I asked her if my husband had paid her to ask that and she laughed at me. I'll give you 27 maybe . . . but not 18.

One of our staff this week said that it seems like I'm not much older than her and I was like, just give me time and I'll start talking about cassette tapes and remembering a time before cell phones. That'll change the way she feels.

In reality, I'm not depressed about turning thirty. In fact, I'm looking forward to being in my early thirties rather than my late twenties. I'm just a little sad about saying goodbye to my twenties. This stage of my life has been good to me and I've learned so much. And it flew by incredibly fast.

I wish I could conclude this post with a picture of me when I was twenty, but I didn't have a digital camera back then.

Happy Birthday (early)! I'm SO not looking forward to 30. Not to mention, I'm going to be VERY pregnant. Or in labor.
