This week started out so bad with losing our furbaby, Chubbs, but everyone's thoughts and kind words have helped. Today I turned 65. I wasn't looking forward to this bday but I sure had tons of reminders for the past year that it was happening. I'm sure there were more than a few forests that were cleared of trees to make paper for AARP , Social Security, and Medicare flyers, reminders, sign ups and other forms of old folk mail. I'm still trying to figure out how it happened. I know how it happened of course...I was born...duh. But the time flew so fast and many days my body reminds me that although my brain thinks it's only 30, my body will scream "OLD!" Or maybe that's "STOP!" Whatever. Anyway it's here and I'm still here so that's a blessing. As Jack always says, "Growing old beats the alternative." And when anyone says it's good to see you Jack also says: "It's better to be seen than viewed." That's true too. So I'll "suck it up buttercup" and be glad for my wonderful family and great friends. I took the day off work since it's also Jack's day off and we drove to Columbus and spent the morning at the Temple. Ahh...peace, quiet, time to think, pray and realize that I have a good life and not to waste what the Lord gave me. We then went out for a quick lunch at Sonic where I had a delish bacon burger and a chocolate shake since there are no calories on your birthday. When we got home Jack told me to change into something comfy and we were going on an adventure. He took me to a place I didn't even know Ashland had...an indoor archery range. I broke my bow about 5 years ago and hadn't had it fixed. I always loved archery. So he surprised me by getting my bow repaired, new arrows, and range time to use whenever I want. Love it! I took the time to test it all out and see if I could still hit the target!
