The older I get the younger I feel

Time flies when you’re busy and I’ve been so busy I almost forgot that my birthday is coming soon. Its on the same day as Father’s Day so the man and I had to haggle for treats. “We both want to be pampered on that day. How?” he asks. “We’ll contra or do a setoff then.” I replied. Hey! But come to think of it. Thats not fair because every year my birthday falls around Father’s Day!

Having a birthday in June wasn’t very fun for me when I was in school. It was always right smack in the middle of examinations. I never had the birthday mood then. Another thing about my birthday is once I passed the age of 21, I can never remember which birthday it is I am celebrating. Usually I have to take my year of birth and count forward. Hahaha.

Its no different this year. My year of birth is 1966. *calculate calculate calculate* Walaueh! Thats ancient man. But the funny thing is the older I get the younger I feel. Accept for the body of course. The mind can play games but the body cannot lie. It shows its age and the mechanism slows down too. All sorts of health problems will start to crop up. Thats when the years of not taking care of oneself really starts to show.

Speaking of which, I better go and oil the machinery now by doing some exercises. I just bought some new exercise tapes to motivate myself. So off I go!

  1. Happy birthday MG!
    When someone asked my aged, I always stunned and think, counting in my mind, how old am I now? haha… Really it has been happening couple of years lately.
    Maybe, cos I don’t care about my age anymore after passed 30.

    Haha. Yes, I always need to count.

  2. Sama2..I too stopped counting after 21! Now others are counting for me esp my kids. BTW, I happen to “stumble” here and I already like what I see. Keep it up mum!! Have a wonderful birthday too:)

    Thanks Angelica and Welcome to my Blog. Help yourself to a virtual birthday cake. 🙂

  3. ah… looks like I read your post before you did on mine!!! 🙂 Happy early birthday to you…

    No, you wished me first but I read your post first. Hahaha.

  4. Ahhh… and I thought you were going to be 25! 😀

    I so know what you mean about forgetting your age. My sisters and I used to ask on our birthdays: How old do you FEEL, and of course it’s always much younger than our actual age. We just can;t keep up with time.

    Happy Birthday!

    (btw, Father’s day is different every year. It’s celebrated the 3rd Sunday of June. So next year no need to wrestle with hubby. :D)

    p/s- I Tagged you.

    Quite often it falls on the same day though. I think it did too last year or the year before last. BTW, I’m not going to be 25. I’m 41 going on 24. Didn’t you notice on my cake? Haha.

  5. Wishing you a Happy Birthday in advance!

    Hey you are right about not feeling your age. Me too…and sometimes I just cannot imagine that I am xxx old already. I used to remember when I was younger, I always had this idea that xxx old is so old.

    Hope you have a good celebration and your hubby a good Father’s Day.

    I used to remember when I was younger, I always had this idea that xxx old is so old.”

    Haha. Yes, this is very true.

  6. Happy birthday to you and may you be blessed with many more. Sometimes I lose count of my age too and thought I was actually a year younger till I count back from the year I was born in… and it hit me that I am actually older, goodness… haha…

    I always think that I am a year younger or more. Hahaha.

  7. Happy birthday and may all yr wishes come true and all yr kids bcome doctors, professors and new Bill Gates 🙂

    I only have two kids so they have to choose between doc, prof or Bill Gates. Hahaha.

  8. Many happy returns, and while it’s true that the body tends to show its age, we just want to make sure it doesn’t lie and behave as though we’re even older than we are!

    Oh yes definitely, we don’t want that do we?!

  9. Happy Birthday to you!!!! WHy u put 24? Sure not 42?Or it’s just random candles that your kids had when they were younger????

    Hahah..I like WMD’s “XXX” age…!!!

    Glad to hear..you had a very nice “flowery” day. Too bad for Dadsgather tho… 😉

    Eh, that cake I generated from a cake generator page, so I can choose any age I want mah. Lol!

  10. I believe I know why the 24. Maybe it’s because we’ve been blogging for so long, we know each other’s “numbers”. Anyway, Happy Belated Birthday MG.

    Haha. Well, you know my number is the opposite of 24. Hehe.
