A birthday gift to love
OK I am not that into my birthday. Growing up it was just another day. No big deal made by anyone, we did get to pick the kind of cake we wanted and what we wanted for dinner. My grandmother could make the best cakes in the world. LEMON POUNDCAKE was mine and my brothers pick every time. Well except for the time I got a barbie cake. Not sure what that was about since I hated barbies. A birthday to me just means that I am one year older and one year closer to being what my kids call old. But this year I am not worried about being older at all. I don't feel like a 39 year old woman nor do I think I look 39. Not sure how you are supposed to feel or look at my age but I am happy and that is all that matters.
When it comes to holidays John normally is not a planner. He does his shopping for every holiday the day before. So this year when he told me he knew what he wanted to get me for my birthday I was surprised. My answer is always, don't buy me clothes I want to loose some weight first. Instead we end up at the bike shop looking at tri bikes. OK we are just looking I thought. I talked to Amy at Paceline about women's tri bikes but didn't really think much about it except for the fact that is what I wanted. Well guess what... he got me the bike. It had to be ordered so I don't actually have it yet but it is on it's way. Hopefully by Saturday it will be here and I can get fitted. Thank you John, Jordan and Ally for a birthday present I wanted and will love I just know it!
I am so excited to ride it but I am also dreading learning something new. Aren't I in the process of learning enough (swimming)? I guess it goes to show, you are never to old to learn new tricks!
