Blue Valentine

I've already stated that in general, I don't have a favorite holiday. So when Valentine's Day rolled around today, going into it I was just "Meh"....until I woke up and it went downhill. Granted nothing absolutely terrible happened, it was just....Meh! Yesterday my neck on my left side started to hurt, by this morning it was even worse, the pain went from my neck all the way down my arm. So I decided to stay home from work until I could get to the chiropractor. 

The nice thing is, I can still work while at home. So I logged into my email and realized that we had one of our classrooms double booked! Minor panic ensued. Thankfully it got worked out (at least as far as I know). I'll know for sure once I get back to the office tomorrow.

The weather was pretty decent though, but overall I just had this feeling of Blahhhhhh......a funk I just couldn't quite shake. Had to run some errands before going to the chiropractor, and then Chauncey and I ended up going out for beers and an appetizer just for the heck of it. So it wasn't terrible. Of course at the time of writing this post, Agents of SHIELD hasn't come on yet.... #SoManyFeels

On Getting Older

My birthday is in a little over 2 weeks, I'll be turning 34. It's weird because I don't know how to feel about this. On one hand I'm always excited for presents (*cough gift cards *cough) and getting taken out to eat (and usually there's cake!)

But on the other hand, that means the NEXT birthday I'll be turning 35....that's a hard number to take in. Granted these days the average life expectancy is mid-80's, 35 is hardly middle aged. But the idea of having to start getting mammograms and needing to change my birth control are not the first things that come to mind when celebrating a birthday.

Turning 35 as a woman means changes in my body are coming; fertility drops, metabolism slows down...pretty much every horrible thing Cosmo tells us can be counteracted with lifestyles like Halle Berry and  Kate Hudson. Actually the dropping fertility doesn't bother me, in fact I'm fully embracing the dwindling of my childbearing years. #ChildFreeByChoice #NoKidsNoThanks

But I've already started to feel the affects since my last birthday; hot flashes, getting up at least once a night to pee, irritability, gaining weight....ugh....Getting older is hard work.

But it's not all bad, maybe I'll get another tattoo.....and a puppy....

At least you're not as old as you will be next year ecard
