On Turning 28

On this day, in 1977, I was born. At 5 lbs. 6 oz., I was six weeks early, and spent my first Christ­mas in hospital.

I used to think that 28 sounded so old – time for mar­ry­ing, house-buying, and think­ing about kid­dos. Now that this day has come, those things seem as far away as they did when I was 20. I’m always amazed that peo­ple I know are doing these things now… my younger cous­ing Mag­gie has 3 kids, and she’s 2 years younger than me. My first real girl­friend from High School is mar­ried. And, it seems like every weblog­ger that I read is either get­ting engaged, mar­ried, or hav­ing a child.

So, I’m 28. I may have been in a hurry to come into this world, but hope­fully I’ve learned to slow down a bit. I’ve got a great girl, good friends, and a lot to be thank­ful for… those other “grown-up” things will fall into place, in time.
