It's Flag Day and my birthday. When I was a kid, my parents told me that the flags people put out were in honor of my birthday so I've always thought I was something special! Thank you, Americans, for honoring my birthday.
In the past, this has been a special day for me. This year, I'm feeling a little uncomfortable. My mother died during this same year of her life. It's not that I think I'm going to die this year (not) but it's sad to me that she missed out on so much because I feel great so I can't imagine that at this age she was so sick that she died. Sad.
Back to me.
I'm still fat. You know, each year I think that on my next birthday I'll be "smaller" but of course it never happens. So I'm going to stop thinking and wishing for it. I just want to be alive on my next birthday!
So far today (and it's only 9:30 am), I've eaten two cupcakes. I baked them last night at 10 pm to take to aerobics class this afternoon to celebrate my birthday. They still need to be frosted but they were tasty without any frosting and quite sweet enough.
There will be more eating today. I mean, I eat on non birthdays so of course I'm going to eat on my birthday. Indian food. To start. Possibly fried food to end the day. Not sure. Right now, cupcakes have filled my tummy and I'm not thinking of anything that I particularly want.
So cheers to me for my birthday. For another year. As my life ahead of me gets shorter, I definitely do appreciate each day a little bit more.
