There is nothing exciting about being 28

Today is my birthday. I feel old. This year is my ten year high school reunion. I think that makes me elderly. Aaron and I celebrated the awful age of 28 on Friday with a date night. We went to the Gregory page show at Lestats. Before the show we got the privilege of sitting near some pierced up teenagers who talked very loudly about blow jobs and acid. I don't think I have ever heard the term Gonorrhea used casually in a conversation. They said it like 20 times. They were talking about a friend who had gonorrhea of the eye, Is that even possible? I kept rolling my eyes every time they said fuck and whispered to Aaron that they needed to broaden their vocabularies. I have become that person; the old person who is nervous around teenagers and wishes they would just get their act together and stop sulking. I am my mother.

The Gregory page show was amazing and perfect, definitely the best way to celebrate my birthday. During the last two songs my right eye would not stop watering and turned red and itchy. Aaron leaned over and whispered "I think those teenagers gave you gonorrhea of the eye!"

Because I am a fan of lists this is what I hope to accomplish at the ripe age of 28

Forgive more easily
Learn how to sincerely apologize
Hold myself more accountable
Go back to school
lose some stomach weight
Become a better wife, mother, daughter, and friend
finish all the miscellaneous books that I am half way finished with
Follow through on everything I start
Make more of an effort to stay in contact with my brother
Return calls and e-mails
