Did you know I was born 24 years ago? Jesus….24?
I remember it like it was a few days ago when I pinned Caitlin Frew down on the carpet of Mr. Scuilli’s second grade classroom just for my first sweet kiss..lol. Or when I was married to Jessica Weaver in 4th-5th grade. How about Elementary school band? That was a freaking joke…
I remember working the spotlight for the 5th grade Christmas play and I remember countless talent shows in that mini gymnasium and how that Michelle girl always threw the batton and did dances but was never any good at it. Maybe things have changed?
Obviously things have changed. I am 6 years out of High school and like 22 years out of diapers (I think…i dont know my exact no more diaper date…i mean…now that I think about it diapers rock..who wants to waste trips to the bathroom these days). I just had the best Thanksgiving break ever and got to spend TOO MUCH time with my family and see alot of friends I hadn’t for a long time. It was refreshing and good to remember the roots of this old tree (me=tree).
I am waiting for this day to be over just so I don’t have to think about it anymore. Its hard to avoid birthdays because the older you get it seems the more they bother you. I know mine is only a short step in the walk of life but 24 is 1 year away from 25, halfway to 48 and nearly a quarter century old. The best thing about it is I am in a great place in my life. Happiness is settling in and contentment is all around me. Not the kind of complacent contentment but I know I am moving forward and I cannot wait for the ride to continue kind of contentment.
Tonight for my birthday I have been invited to go to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra at the RBC center. We will see how much fun that is. I am really excited and miss live music and miss finding live music that I can enjoy on my level. Thanks AMANDA!
Tomorrow is my day off and I will spend it catching up on sleep, cleaning the apartment I will soon be moving out of and swiffering, vacuuming and cleaning my sheets. All habits I am grateful to now have.
Chrissy-I am so incredibly freaking proud of you. You are graduating college a semester early..which takes a lot of work and determination and you will be the first Gorman to graduate college. Everyone in our family is proud of you on a level you cannot even begin to understand. Love you…you will go far.
JC-Where the hell are you?
Danielle-Its my birthday..you know what that means?! Im glad to see our friendship has remained over these years and kinda stayed its course. I am here always if you need me so dont be afraid to reach out. Hopefully will see you soon.
To all of my 1000 facebook friends. You are lucky facebook reminds you its my fucking birthday. Or else you all would be lame ass friends…lol
Thanks everyone…from the bottom of my heart. Have a great Gorman’s Birthday.
