Birthday candles, AARP and a Colonoscopy!

You guessed it… Today I am 50! Hard to believe, because I don’t think I act like I’m 50. Actually to say “fifty” out loud sounds so foreign to me, it actually makes me laugh, which is better than crying, ha ha… Hey, I look forward to the future, 50 is the new 30 (and all you young people reading this that just rolled your eyes… Just wait, you go from 30 to 50 in the blink of an eye, time accelerates as you get older, I’m sure you’ve heard your parents, grandparents or any random older person say that at one time or another. I’m here to say. IT’S TRUE! So be happy for every day you have on earth…)!

Yep,  FIFTY birthday candles… enough to start a fire! Need a fire extinguisher nearby! Trying to think on the bright side… AARP. I can be a member now! Woohoo! Hey, I am excited about senior discounts now! If ya can’t beat ’em, join ’em, right? Did you know at age 55 you can get a free coffee from Dunkin Donuts? Get outta here! At 50 you can get a discount at Banana Republic (maybe because they know very few 50 year old women can fit in their clothes?)!

And oh yeah… the biggest birthday gift that you can give yourself… a colonoscopy! Help me out, I’m trying to think positive here… A good way to lose weight? I have a “consultation” soon.. Yippeeeee… I’ve read enough about it, am a tad worried I may starve to death, and NO MILK OR CREAM the day before, oh heavy sigh…. I can handle no food, but no cream means no coffee. That my friends, isn’t going to be pretty! I guess if that’s all I have to worry about, I’m doing great!

I know it’s going to be a fabulous birthday, Fred always makes sure of that. I love my birthday present, a Nikon Coolpix p510 with a 42x zoom, can’t wait to get it to Maine! WOOHOO!

Have a happy day and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow!!

    So I’m hoping 60 was the new 40. I’m telling you the next decade goes pretty fast so enjoy the hell out of 50. You forgot movie discounts – some are 5o. Tuesdays at Bealls also. Have fun!


    1. Definitely 60 is the new 40!! You’re only as old as you feel right? I don’t feel 50 (well… usually, ha ha)… which is why I laugh now to say “50”… movie discounts?? WHAT? Will have to check that out! Tuesdays at Bealls? I don’t think I know of that place? Sounds good though! Thanks for the comment!


  2. You covered some quite memorable occasions in this post. I’ll celebrate the birthday but you can have the colonoscopy…definitely not a celebration…take that back; positive results definitely are a cause to celebrate!! 50 seems like a youngster. My next in September will be 77, but I look like mid-60’s…or so I’ve been told. Hang in there; you have just entered the flower of womanhood!
