I've lied about my age over the years....
So why the confession of age? Well in 10 days I will be 40 again...or 47! It's hard to pull off 40 especially since 40 is the new 30! I should actually say 50 and people would be like no way!! In my family of five girls, three of us have October birthdays! I was wishing one a week or so ago a happy birthday and giving her a hard time about actually being 51 and wondering how our other sister feels about being 49! She said to me she is not 49 she just turned 48 and I was like no I'm going to be 48! She just laughed and called me an idiot! Like sisters do!
You see this whole year I've been 47, even wrote about it, talk about it and truly believed it! Apparently math is not my strong suit...I was born in 1965! I am 46 for another 10 days! I was shocked in a good way....my sister thought she gave me the best gift of all another year! We laughed and laugh.
This is not the first time I've been confused about my age....when I was 38 I really thought I was 37 and told people all year I'm 37! I worked for my BIL doing insurance. I was figuring out a man's age to run a quote and our birthdays were days apart....the quote ran him as a 38 year old. I was like something is wrong with this program. It says he is 38 but our birthday days are so close and I'm 37! It hit me like a ton of bricks! I was actually kind of dizzy!
Some might say I'm an idiot or not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to age!! Can I still blame my Mom at my age!! Is all I know I better call my hair salon and book my appointment no 46 year old should be this gray!
