Yep, you guessed it. Today is my birthday, and it’s a big one. The Big 5-0!! Honestly, I never thought I would make it this long in life. I can think of harrowing moments from my earlier years. Not to mention being in law enforcement for sixteen years, but now that I have, I hope I have another forty years to live!
For today’s post, I’m going to share a few things about me that you probably didn’t know.
I was born in Middletown, N.Y. on June 13th, 1969, and went to 13 schools before I graduated high school. I have had 23 addresses in my life, but I’ve lived at the last one for 16 years. So 23 addresses in 34 years of life. Do you know something I’m really good at? You guessed it – Packing!
My favorite place to live was in Sarasota Florida, and it’s where I’ll be spending a few days with my family this next week to celebrate my birthday. I even lived in Hawaii for a short time. By the time I’d gotten back to the mainland, I had overdosed on fresh pineapple!
I love classic cars (Mustangs and Challengers especially), Disney, photography, walking on the beach, watching a sunrise – and a sunset. I love music and movies, and I adore my family.
I don’t drink alcohol, it messes with my brain and after two concussions, I have enough issues with that. My favorite breakfast food is bagels and cream cheese with a slice of tomato, but I don’t eat bread anymore. In fact, I don’t eat any processed foods or things that contain sugar. I miss ice cream, but I’m healthier than I have been in years!
I have two children, a son who is almost twenty-nine and a daughter who is almost sixteen. My kids are almost exactly 13 years apart, and my grandson is 13 years younger than my daughter. My granddaughter threw off the 13-year rule when she was born 2 years after her brother. I guess we’ll keep her in the family, she is kind of cute!
One thing about birthdays, I’m not a fan of receiving gifts, but I sure do love to give them! So this month, this is my gift to you:
