Wow yep it has come and gone – my 39th birthday….this is officially my last year in 30’s.  Yesterday I was recovering from a wedding as I celebrated my 39th birthday.  It was kind of a weird day, birthdays have never really meant a lot to me, or felt like a huge special day, I guess maybe when I was younger they were awesome and I liked to make a big deal out of them.  I like making more of a big deal out of my kid’s birthday or even my husband’s than my own.  But all day long I kept singing Tim McGraw’s “My Next 30’s Years” in my head of course because out loud we sang “Let it Go” very loudly in the backyard as we were playing bocce and the girls crushed it hardcore – I’m happy to say – despite my son’s constant heckling and screaming out “Noonan” – yes that’s from Caddyshack….best Mom of the year here!

Anyhow, so the song got me to thinking of my last year in the 30‘s and how I really do need to ‘live it up’ and all these amazing things I have planned.  Also my bucket list, how many things I can get crossed off in this monumental year so here’s my song:

I think I’ll take a moment, and honor my age

The ending of an era and the turning of a page

Now it’s time to hone in on where I go from here

Everyone around better watch out for this crazy year

 

In this next year I’m gonna have some fun

Try to forget about all the boring things I’ve done

Maybe now I’ve done all my civic duties

And I’ll live better in my next year

 

This next year I’m gonna settle all the scores

Cry a little less, laugh a lot more

Embrace this world of chaos without a care in the world

Figure out just what I’m supposed to do

In my next year

 

Oh my next year, I’m gonna loose those last 7 pounds

Drink a few more martinis and that’s okay

Run a few more miles too because I love it

I’ll definitely remember this next year

 

My next year will be the craziest year of my life

Raise this kookie family and hang out with my Gage

Make chaotic memories with the ones that I love most

Make the best of this milestone year because I’m 39
