My last post was January 8th so I thought I better update everything: No Change
OK, now that I finished that and brought everyone up to date, I'll go on to something that is heavy on my mind. I am nearing a VERY significant birthday. I am just 6 weeks away from my 60th birthday. Now for anyone who wants to point out that longevity is a gift that not all receive and it is better than the alternative, save your typing fingers. I know that and totally agree. However, it does NOTHING to temper my "freak out" over this milestone.
All my life I've felt like I've been a bit out of step with practically everyone else in the universe. In my younger years this caused me a lot of
Anyway, for this 60th birthday, the day that I am sure the sun will delay its rise and the ground will quake, I wanted something to commemorate it that would be equivalent (or at least representative) to the level angst that it is causing me. After looking around and seeing that everyone else was getting a surprise party, I thought that would be a wonderful thing. The only problem is that my hubby is not a surprise party organizing kind of guy. I did my best to try and convince him but have resigned myself to the fact that there will be no surprise party for my 60th birthday.
So I had to start thinking how I could mark this event. What could I do that would demonstrate the HUGE significance of turning 60? And then it came to me . . . I'm going to get a tattoo!
OK, let me say here and now that I have NEVER gotten a tattoo, nor have I ever wanted one! I swore I would go to my cremation oven without the addition of any marks to my body that were not properly done by a surgeon under anethesia (me, not the doctor). I mean really, isn't 60 kind of old for getting a tattoo? Well, I think it is and dammit, that just might have made the idea a bit more attractive!
I am keeping the design a secret and will have an unveiling (Surprise!) once it's done (I don't have an appointment yet). And in case you're wondering, hubby is dead set against this. Damn, the rebel is awakened!
