Adria's Musings: I'm How Old Today???

Today’s Musings: I'm HOW OLD????

I blinked and I turned 34 what they heck? The dreaded birthday is upon me once again. As a kid you usually love your birthday, what kid doesn’t? It’s filled with attention from loved ones, gifts, and getting to eat one’s favorite foods without being told no. My birthdays went from having a bunch of my classmates over and celebrating, to only a few select friends as a teen, then to three or four close buddies in my early twenties. Now in my thirties?

I just want a day where I don’t have a long list of things I have to do by a certain time! A nap would be nice too but I’m not very good at taking those. I’m not really one for birthdays anymore, they just mark another year of life and in my case, another year living a life I so didn’t want. I’m feeling those aches and pains now guys, the ones I thought I wouldn’t feel for another ten years? Yup, I have to make an effort to get out of bed (or in this case, insect infested sofa) and stand. I tire easily enough, and yet my days are filled with chores that must be done that day by a certain time.

This year I am going to take that wish and make it a reality! Actually, I’m going to go on a two week hiatus cause my mom’s off from work and we’re going to go job hunting for her and I have a TON of health and financial appointments I scheduled for the next two weeks since the car will be available then. But other than that I plan on not doing much but reading, catching up on reviews, and chasing a certain dog around and making sure she’s doing okay. Starting today though I’m just going to try and de-stress. That’s been the biggest problem with me lately. I’m tense as heck just waiting for bad things to happen and that isn’t good for depression or anxiety. I’m like a cat over water guys! Lol.

I’m going to finally see the cardiologist on October 10, early in the morning for these chest pains I’ve been having for almost a year. I’m hoping that it isn’t something terrible and that it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg either. I’ll definitely be sharing my experience with that on Instagram most likely. So wish me luck with that. I’ll be going in alone too since my mom will be Hayley sitting and I don’t have anyone else to go with me. Fun times ahead I tell you. Anyway, I’m getting nervous just thinking about it so I’m stopping that train of thought now.

I’m going to be doing some “For Me” reading so does anyone have any good recommendations? They don’t have to be romance novels, a good book is a good book.

Oh and I won’t be doing the costumes on the blog this year due to time commitments and having photoshop on a laptop that is done being used. Good news is that my little sister did me a huge solid, she lessened my stress about the laptop by getting me a new one! I am the happy owner of an AMAZING new laptop that I am getting to know right now. I love it but I am still in the process of transferring all my important files to it. I will however be doing the Halloween giveaway in two weeks so hang on a bit.

In the two weeks I’ll be redesigning the newsletter too. I’ve already added some cute things here and there, including the latest video tutorial I am using for various projects. If you haven’t signed up for the newsletter, now is a good time because I’ll be having a newsletter only giveaway soon.

I wish you all a good weekend and I’ll see you in two weeks! In the meantime I am going to celebrate my birthday today with a trip to Haagen Dazs for that delicious Belgian Chocolate ice cream! Make sure you follow me and Hayley on Instagram for what will hopefully be some shenanigans throughout the next few days.
