Today I am 36.

I would love to show you a photo of just me when I was younger, but my sister who also turns 36 today? She is in every. damn. photo.

1977

I’m on the right, hesitant about the outfit. And my mother’s glasses.

I stood in front of the mirror last night at 11:59 and watched my 35 year old self turn 36.  And I thought to myself, “36 is some straight bullshit”.  I then applied my “firming face cream” all over my entire body because you can never be to careful when you are my age.

I also had to pluck three elbow hairs and two chin hairs while I was in the bathroom, but that’s pretty much my entire 30’s.

Not that I would want to be in my 20’s again, what a shitstorm that was, you know?  I have a small scar on my stomach, it’s from a burn actually, that I received from FRYING SQUASH WHILE WEARING A BIKINI.  Because I was 22 and it seemed like a good idea at the time.

That was actually my motto from birth until I was 29-“It seemed like a good idea at the time“.

Which is exactly what my mom said about those outfits she made us wear and about having twins.

Christmas 1977

YOU ARE IN MY SHOT.

So, Happy 36th Birthday to me.  And my sister.  But mostly me.
