Hubby just was bugging me about something he could get me for my birthday (we agreed no expensive gifts w/the house coming)...and I'm so old I couldn't think of anything! Nothing...Of course, i could easily blow a couple hundred on a cool purse or shoes, but it's right before the fall stuff comes out, so I'll wait.
I was always confused when I was little and adults wouldn't be as excited about their birthdays as I was about mine. Now I get it.
Like so many other things, with age, comes understanding.
