How did 42 sneak up so fast?

Well today I turn 42. I KNOW! Not a day over 41. I don’t feel 42, more like 29. Yep, I constantly feel either like “a 12 year old” or 29. Those two ages have stuck. When I’m acting immature, I’m 12, when I feel grown up, I’m 29.

But how on earth did 42 sneak up on me so fast? I’m lucky to have 2 young boys, ages 4 and 6 and that keeps me young. Today we are going to a local park for Rocking Rusty’s Jamboree, a free picnic at the Nicollet Commons park here in Burnsville. I’ll eat PB & J’s with my boys, run through the water fountains, maybe sing along in the jamboree and be 12 for a few hours. Today is going to be a great day.

Tomorrow, my husband and I are going up north to Lutsen Resort on the beautiful shores of Lake Superior. We are taking the Harley, leaving the kids at my sisters, just me and my ole man, wind in our hair, not a care in the world.

Thanks to all my dear friends, my new on-line friends, my family, and even some anonymous strangers who post once in awhile, thanks for being a part of my life here at the Knotty Generation.

I was searching for pictures when I was 12 and 29, but really wanted to post this picture of me when I was 4, because I love this hair cut!
