I’m Not over the Hill, It’s just getting Harder to Climb

May 27th, 2006 by Rose DesRochers · 14 Comments

I’m spending my evening counting down the minutes until I turn 37. Five minutes to go and it’s “Happy Birthday to Me.”

Boy, do I feel old. I don’t know if it’s on account of the extra pounds, few grey hairs or the fact that I have a son twelve and a daughter who soon will be sixteen. When I think back, my mother was thirty-seven when she gave birth to me.Therefore, I’m really not that old. Besides, age is just a number, right?

I’m not over the Hill. The hill is just getting harder to climb.

Wish me happy birthday, dammit!

I look like a baby sumo wrestler!

    Happy Birthday rose. 37 is not such an old age. There are many people who say life starts at 40. So don’t worry about the grey hairs and stuff, it just tells others that you’ve acquired more wisdom than those without.
