My Journey in the 30's: Part 1 of many

Turning 30 for me was almost a mid life crisis ready to happen. (I know I know it is only 30, but whatever it was hard for me).

It has been 2 months since I entered this new rite of passage and I think I am settling in just fine. I have embraced it with a new outlook and am going to work on me this decade. Wait let me rephrase... I am going to work on the inner me.

I am trying to not let this number of 30 take over me. It is like nails on a chalkboard, but I am going to rise above. It will try to knock me down, but I will brush myself off and get right back up. This will be my "Journey in the 30's".

This is "Part 1" of many posts that will talk about this journey I have since embarked on.

Part 1 should be titled, "When your child throws you under the bus".

At dinner we asked Chick 2 how her day at school was. This is the conversation that ensued:

Chick 2: Today at school we had a sub for music and he was singing all weird (gives us an impression which sounds like a old man signing very low)

Me: Well sometimes it's the age of the person and they type of music they listened to as a kid and now. Was he old?

Chick 2: Yeah like in his 20's to 30's.

Me: (Cringing) Thanks kid, thanks.

After I just brushed myself off.

You thought you were going to get me 30, but I prevailed.

Until next time.

I'm right there with you--30 was a big one! Next month, I will 30 1/2, which means, 6 months after that, I will be "in my 30s." You're not in your 30s until 31, I believe. Right now, we're just 30. Glad you are doing your best to embrace this decade! :)
