My Next Thirty Years

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

So here's my birthday post. Two days late. Mostly because I cried so hard on the actual day I couldn't hardly send a text message let alone a thoughtful entry. That's me though. I cry for a lot of things, good & bad. I cry for roadkill & sometimes when Jack says, 'mama.' Luckily, before the big birthday bawl session, we took off for two days in sunriver....central oregon- one of my favorite places. ever. here's some photos of our little trip... my husband was wise enough to not photgraph me on my actual brithday with the big bleary eyes...but instead captured these moments that kind of depict how I'd like to remember my 3oth and how i'd like to continue living. I've also add Tim McGraw's lyrics, "My Next Thirty Years," since I'm still so emotional, I thought I'd l let someone else take care of the sentiments!

I think Ill take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now its time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

Hey my next thirty years Im gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things Ive done
Maybe now Ive conquered all my adolescent fears
And Ill do it better in my next thirty years

My next thirty years Im gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what Im doing here
In my next thirty years

Oh my next thirty years, Im gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe Ill remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here, in my next thirty years
In my next thirty years
