So, this is what happens when you age. What you used to consider a tame night makes you feel like it wasn't. I've talked about feeling old on here before. I seem to be feeling it a lot lately. Remember that feeling old doesn't mean feeling bad. It just means feeling old. No judgments.
Last night, one of my favorite persons in the whole world celebrated her birthday. As she always does, she rents a karaoke room and invites a bunch of us. About 40 people showed up. She invited 30. The room was supposed to only fit 20.
To say that I had a lot of fun would not give it justice. I don't think I have ever sang that much at karaoke. I won't even talk about the choreography that I created to go with my singing. The birthday girl pulled me aside and thanked me for being the life of the party. I had a ton of fun. I had people laughing. I had people singing along. I haven't had that much fun in a long time.
I was scared that I would have no voice when I woke up this morning. But I did. And I went to teach class. And worked out afterward. And now, I am exhausted. Tired. Happy. But tired. Feeling old. I should mention that I also worked out before I headed out to the birthday party. I guess that doesn't really help. But summer is coming.
So this is what happens when you age. You have dinner with your partner. You sit and rest your feet. You grab that gallon of mint chip ice cream out of the freezer. Let it thaw. Get a spoon. Dig in. Blog about it. Because your feeling old. No judgments. Later.
