Goodbye 27

Sorry ya'll that I have MIA lately. I have been super duper busy. But I have so much to talk about but not enough time. Are any of you sad that you haven't heard from me? anyone? why is it so quiet? mom?!

So even if you couldn't give a rat's you get an update on what I have been up to. I made you this list of all the stuff that has been taking me away from Bower Power. I have posts coming up about some of the following so don't go too far...

  • Planned, shopped for and fed 75 ladies at a church event (and decorated the shindig too)
  • Bought a new shmancy mattress and boxspring at Ikea (lots of bootie shaking there!)
  • Celebrated my boys - the Steelers - as they kicked the Cardinals tailfeathers.
  • Found some great new tchotchkies at Goodwill.
  • Started piano lessons.
  • Made some fantastic cheap art.
  • Copied and transfered a bazillion photos from my old computer to my new & snapfish & photobucket (still not done - it takes forever!!!)

And lastly, I have one last thing I am doing. I am saying goodbye to the great age of 27. Today is it. The last hurrah...el ultimo buenos dia...the finale to my mid-20's...tomorrow I will officially be in my late twenties :( I could kinda get away with saying 27 was mid twenties...but no more. See how happy I was with my family on my 27th:

I have this irrational fear that tomorrow that I will wake up thirty pounds heavier and looking like Joan Rivers or Helen Mirren. Please dear Lord, I would prefer Helen...if it's your will :) I will also have gloucoma and my teeth will start crumbling. Bladder control will be a thing of the past and Jeremy will have to help me remember my maiden name. My doctor will have to prescribe cholesterol medication instead of birth control and my two favorite topics will be arthritis and the weather. Gosh. 28 sucks.

Tonight, instead of saying goodbye with a wave and a smile and maybe a margarita, I will be laid out on a table while a laser hair removal lady zaps my bikini area with a high intensity laser. There will be tears...there will be enormous amounts of sweating...and a muttering of words that I will need to pray about later. Even the goodbye sucks.

Also, I am not really done with 27. There are a million things I was supposed to do or see or accomplish by now and I haven't done any of them. Why have I been such a slacker?!? Why does time fly?!?! Why does it go faster if you have a good time?!?! WHY?! I might be having a panic attack. Quick - what is the number for 911 ?!?!

I've been in major withdrawal during your absence--I had the shakes and the sweats!

Wish I could celebrate w/ you! Then again, you probably wouldn't speak to me again afterwards. Yes, I'm that wild =)

Happy Birthday, Katie!! You don't look a day over 21.

Happy early Birthday! I missed your funny posts. And 28 is nothing. You are as old as you act and look and you look and act like you are 18. Ok, I don't know you, so I don't know that you act 18, but you sure do look 18! It's a good thing! :-)

I would definitely go with the Helen Mirren. Did you see her tabloid pictures over the summer? Amazing!

Happy Birthday!!!

Sherry said...

No hyperventilating. Do you not remember how cute you are in glasses? Just use your glasses-model-hand-movements to raise a margarita to your lips and have a happy birthday! Off to watch Lost and email you all about it.


Kim & Ryan said...

I'm so happy you are back in action. We've all been missing you> Sounds like you have been keeping busy!

Happy Birthday! I'm fairly certain (like 98%) that you won't wake up looking like Joan Rivers. But, stranger things have happened. Just saying..... ;)

Happy B-Day...welcome to the Grown side!

Emily said...

Happy Birthday! And you and Sherry are email buddies now? That's like, a birthday present in and of itself. Wow girl!

Jen M said...

Happy birthday! I've missed you! And quit it with the "28 is old" thing - what does that make me at 33?!?!?! But you know what, if you think your 20's were fun wait for your 30's - it's a blast. I totally loved turning 30. You've a lot to look forward to!

Kelli said...

I missed you..there were tears! Looks like you've had a lot on your plate, but good stuff.
Have a wonderful birthday.

Hellen is HOT! Did you see her over the summer in that classic red bathing suit??? I wish I looked half as good as her!

I can't wait to see your projects. Cheap artwork...count me in.
