Happy 45

It might bother me more, if I felt that old. I don't.  Getting older has never really bothered me. Ask me how I feel in 5 years, that might change things. But, for now, it's all good. Noah wanted to know who was coming to my birthday. He thinks anyone who has a birthday has a party.  We just had a quiet day at home- with cheesecake.
Here are a few random things about me. See how many you already know.

  • I had brown eyes growing up. Brown. Now, they're hazel.
  • I didn't like country music until 10 years ago.
  • I was on the modern dance team at Ricks College. (When I'm resurrected, I'll have that dancer's body!)
  • As a teenager, I had a huge crush on Shawn Cassidy. (Do you even know who that is?) Also, one on Christopher Reeves.
  • I was a nanny- twice. 
  • I love beets. My mom cans them every year.  My kids won't touch them, I waited too long to introduce them. Oh, well, more for me.
  • I love action movies.
  • I cry at the drop of a hat. Everyone knows that. You may not know that  I'm trying to get better control of my emotions. It's not going so well.
  • They say the fear of public speaking is only second to the fear of death. Not for me. I enjoy public speaking.
  • I'm very limber. I can't do the splits anymore, but I can do a fairly decent high kick.
  • I've never traveled outside the continental U.S.
  • I don't have a middle name, but I do have a nickname that my dad has called me for as long as I can remember. He still does.
  •  All I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a mom and a published writer. Almost there.
