It's True

Today is my birthday.  My, um, 49th birthday.  Gah.
And, yesterday, on my birthday eve?
I found a grey eyebrow hair.  Gah.
And I got this treasure in my email box:
Oh.  The injustice of it all.  Gah.

Have a most wonderful day, you old old Mama.

Miss Hower said...

Happy Birthday Miss! Remember the good ole days when we used to celebrate your big day with some champagne and Rick James's "Superfreak" playing at 3,000 decibels in the background? I remember those fabulous long legs of yours doing a super-freaky dance quite well...

And now there you are all Sonomatized -- slim in your blankie with sleeves and looking at wheelchair hovercraft! Get out there and dance you young, beautiful thing! xoxoxo

Not to worry. 49 is the new 13.

kim-d said...

Hehehe...so do you think Annie sent the e-mail, or Jules? :) Tell ya what. You buy one and I'll buy one, and we'll race them. GAH is right!!!

Happy, Happy Birthday to you, MPM. I am another one who will always be older than you, so take heart in that. The only answer is immaturity. Well...and remembering that whatever age we're at is the BEST age to be. :)

Have a wonderful birthday.

Caution Flag said...

Well that explains why the day started out so nicely. Must be all the universe celebrating you. Go ahead and get the hover thingie. It's such a good deal! Happiest of days, Mama!!

Just be glad you didn't find a whisker!

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day. Do something you love!

Ellen said...

Happy Birthday. Just think, next year we'll get our AARP membership applications - according to my friends who turned 50 last year.

Enjoy the day and remember that all food consumed today has zero calories.

Next weekend, if the plan that Nurse Nancy and Annie works, we can toast our January birthdays when we finally get to meet.

Oh and don't sweat the number - my mom turns 80 today so there is hope for us.

The Incredible Woody said...

Don't you just love when you have such wonderful friend to send you great things like that?!?

Happy Birthday, Mama!! You are SO gonna rock that Hoverround!!! Of course, you'll have to get some new shoes to match it:)

Kacey said...

Awesome! You be the first to try out that wheelchair, okay? Be sure and let us know how you like it ;)

Happy Birthday!! (does the food I consume on your birthday have no calories??)

Joanie said...

Aw, you're still a baby...

Mary said...

Hey don't you think the Hoveround looks like fun? Imagine scooting sown the aisles in the grocery store, leaving all those old people with their shopping carts in the dust...

OK, so maybe it's not THAT much fun.

Hope you have a very happy birthday!!!
xoxo,
Mary

Starwoodgal said...

I bet if you checked, your eyebrows wouldn't be the only place you found gray hair. :)

Chere said...

Happy Birthday Mental P!!! Gray hair in the eyebrow? I have plenty on my head but none in my eye brows. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Cool Breeze said...

Happy Birthday!

I'm sure you don't need a Hoveround quite yet, but it could come in handy on those nights when you can't seem to get to the bathroom on your own.

Sandie said...

Happy Birthday! I wish I could take you to a fabulous lunch (wine included), but as it is, I can only send you wishes that your day is filled with all the people and activities that you hold dearest to your heart. I hope you enjoy every single moment of your 49th year! May it bring you endless joy!

Sandie said...

P.S. I was in my 30's when I found my first gray eyebrow(s), so take heart! (Tweezers work wonders)

Tammy said...

Happy Birthday!!

Treasia said...

Happy Birthday to you MM. Just think before long you can get the senior citizens discount at restaurants. Ha.

Fairy Mae said...

Happy Birthday to you! Grey hair and all!! Ahhh, One's not so bad...you just wait! But that's what nice n easy is for!! But all in all, I hope you have a great day!!

Meg said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 49 years young?!? Fabulous! And I'm 28 and would love one of those scooters. I'd totally run people down with it. Especially the hordes of teenagers in the mall.

brneyedgal967 said...

Happy Birthday Lauren!

You might want to check downstairs - I mean if you've got gray hair in your eyebrows, then you probably have them in *ahem* other places.

... is that a bottle of wine I hear opening?

Big Hair Envy said...

Your birthday gift is on my site:)

Grandma J said...

Happy Birthday, Mental P Mama! I hope your day is fabulous!

I think those hover things are dangerous to the general population. But if I ever need a walker, I'm opting for a fully loaded hovercraft instead.

There is a commercial that says "Life comes at your fast" and that really rubs me the wrong way

Busy Bee Suz said...

Happy birthday!!!
I wonder if those hover-rounds come in different colors????
Have a great day!

Daryl said...

Does it vaccuum as you go?

Daryl said...

Hit send too soon .. Happy 39th!

Speedcat Hollydale said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!!!!!!

On your profile page it says tou are 700. No wonder the hoveround ad came in.

((smile))

Hope you have a fantastic day :-)

Country Girl said...

Happy Birthday, Lauren!

Sorry I haven't seen this until now.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Have a fabulous birthday - I hope you went out to lunch and are going out to dinner and are not having to do anything, not even be envious of children in Costa Rica....Happy, Happy Day.

noble pig said...

Happy Birthday! I would say one gray hair in the brow is pretty good! Have a wonderful day!

Suz Broughton said...

Let me be the very first to wish you a very happy birthday! ...I am the first, right?

(Sometimes!) Serendipitous Girl said...

Ohmahgah! Everyone I know is in here! How have I not known about THIS party? You're amazing! Happy Birthday : ) Marlene sent me your way!

Kareer Woman said...

Happy Birthday!

Debra (a/k/a Doris, Mimi) said...

Hmmmm...think of it as a sort of Segway...for 49 year olds.

Happy birthday, Lauren!!!!!

Molly said...

Marlene spilled the news...hope you had a happy day, and Many More!

Snooty Primadona said...

Sorry to be late with wishes for a Happy Birthday, but Happy Birthday! Oh, to be just 49 again.... And trust me, you don't look a day over 35. Hope you had a truly great day.

KD @ A Bit Squirrelly said...

Enquiring minds want to know - How fast does 40-49 go?

Happy Birthday.

Happy Belated Birthday! Enjoy!

phd in yogurtry said...

Happy 49th! And don't roll your eyes at those hover vehicles. Paired with the right shoes, they can be a very sexy accessory.
