I'll be turning. . .
I'm pretty sure that, had you asked 16 year old me, this is not what my life would have looked like at a week shy of 35. I'm not some high-powered business lady. I don't have a collection of suits and stiletto heels. I don't live in a high rise apartment, alone - and I certainly don't have the figure that I was "supposed" to.
16 year old me never would have imagined 2 kids, a mortgage, a husband, a dog, and no job. "Stay-at-home-mom" wasn't even in my vocabulary. And running? What the hell is that all about? People do that? For FUN? Weirdness.
Yet here I am, on the verge of being half of 70 (or, part of 80, since that's what my husband and I will be this year if you add our ages together!), and I'm a mom, a wife, a runner, a homeowner, and a homemaker. (Though, truthfully, Martha Stewart would laugh her ass off at that one. Pinterest Perfect, my home is NOT.)
Still. My life is pretty cool. And 2014 (and therefore, being 35) is going to bring some pretty amazing things - a few fun trips, some races, meeting some of my crazy "internet friends," etc. And I know that just a few years ago, none of it would have been possible. So... I guess this "thing" that's happening next week? I think I'm kinda thrilled about it. =)
