Birthday Ideas – 6 Ways to Spend Your Birthday

We all have that special day. I have special birthday ideas for me. It will be here shortly and I am not sad. Every day is a good day. I am definitely smarter than I was before I quit counting those years.

Here are six birthday ideas for my special day.

1. Will not look in the mirror.mirror-bathroom

I used to see that 18 year old but now I see her mother. I earned those wrinkles and that gray hair. Every parent understands and realizes that badge of honor. I did my best and was successful. That must be why I look more like my Mom every day.

2. Remove that day from the calendar.

It is not like the year I turned 16 and got my drivers license. I could not wait and always wanted to be older. Now I want to be a year younger. But this is not so very bad. I have learned so much during my years on this earth. I would not want to go back to those days. Yes, it is a good day for me.

3. Have a strong drink.birthday-drink

I would not mind having two or maybe three. It may be a delightful feeling for a bit in the evening. But too much will give me a stomach ache and I may be sorry tomorrow morning. What the heck, I deserve this evening. Maybe even 4 drinks before bed time.

4. Refuse to take any calls.

telephoneHow about having a special day and forget the happy part. Not so fast! It is a special day and I will have a happy birthday. I am grateful for every day and this one is even more special. I understand so much more now. Ever listen to a 20 something-year-old? Certainly, I never talked like that. I could not have. They sound so churlish. I was never so selfish. One more “awesome” and I will scream.

5. Bake a cake.

That was fine with me but she never frosted the sides of the cake, only on the top. I do not think she would like to purchase it ready made from the store. She preferred Pillsbury and she always used an extra egg and milk instead of water. I will bake my own cake unless I can find one that tastes as good as mine. Even better if they want to give it to me for free!

6. tissuesWatch a great movie.

A sad chick flick that has a romantic ending would be best. I can get out my tissues and cry over the ending. It is better when no one can see me so no explanations are necessary.

So now I sit on my sofa, eating chocolate cake, crying over an old movie, drinking a favorite beverage on a day that does not exist on the calendar, not talking on the phone nor gazing into the mirror.  What a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday! It is indeed a good day to enjoy my birthday ideas.

Happy Birthday to ME!
