I guess I just needed some space. I was able to take a walk while the kids slept this afternoon and I'm coming to terms with the big 34. I don't really know why it is such a big deal, It isn't even one of those numbers that shout "milestone!"

At 30, I didn't get to do a lot of celebrating as I was pregnant with our first. We had a quiet dinner in some restaurant I can't remember. I don't remember any presents, just that there was the big storm, Milenyo and there was hardly any place that had electricity. Hmm, I'm begining to remember it now... we ate at Masas. Reasonably priced Filipino food.

See, all I needed was space.


  1. I feel the same way! My turn in less than 2 months. I don't know why 33 seems a whole lot younger than 34, but 34 just seems so... not young? Am I making it worse? lol I was in a funk about turning 30, but that was just melodrama. With 34, it's like there's no escaping the hard reality.
    After that cheery intro, I do wish you a happy birthday, Nikka. :D

  2. I think we are stressed by the big 3-4 because we're officially in our "MID-THIRTIES."

    Ow. That hurt to say.
