Thoughtful Thursday: 32 Days to 32

And in the end it is not the years in your life that count. 
It's the life in the years that count.
~Abraham Lincoln

I hate when I don't have time to blog daily. Yes I could "make time," but honestly in my free time I have been either going to bed early, spending 3 minutes on a game of Boggle on my iPhone or dozing off to DVR'd episodes of Oprah before bed. I want to write about how the Bug and I had our first girls sleep over at my cousin's with her daughter.
How Sunday I had another crazy stranger danger incident in my neighborhood when walking with the kids, or how I volunteered 9 hours over two days making 132 cakes for a fundraiser at my synagogue. Did I mention I got one run in this week? Yup, just one and it was Tuesday and it was only two miles. The great thing about Tuesday was capping it off with a chocolate milkshake with my mother-in-law right before we watched Something Borrowed at the theater. Such a great movie, makes me want to read the books. I am a total sucker for a chick flick.

So what am I going to write about? How about how I "failed to appear" for Jury Duty and had to go today. Lucky me, not only was I dismissed, but my duty is fulfilled through January 2013! The fact that I am sitting on the couch eating cereal, blogging and watching the biggest loser finale on DVR. I am a little annoyed I only know who won because I saw a magazine cover in the grocery store line today. Nope not gonna write about that either, I am going to start blabbering on about my approaching birthday...32 days from now. I will be 32 and I kind of like the idea of doing a count down so here goes, 32 days to 32. What kind of life have I put into 32 years? A lot! I have been thinking so much lately about where I am, where I want to be and where I have been and gee whiz I sure have had plenty of life experience. I did a questionnaire once on Facebook where I got to place an "X" next to all the things I have done in my life, and wouldn't you know most were checked off. So Abe Lincoln, can I call you Abe? I have done a darn good job at packing in the experience. So in the days leading up to 32 I want to continue the trend. Any suggestions? I wish I could lose 32 pounds because then I would be at my high school weight, but let's not talk crazy here people. I am already doing a weekend birthday trip, but other than that I am open to ideas.
Why I Kick A$$: Uh, I lead a crew of people over 2 days to make 132 cakes. 132! Hell yeah!!! Did I mention it was pound cake, layered with chocolate butter cream filling, then completely encased in chocolate and then frozen so when you slice into it is a hard chocolate shell with a yummy moist layers inside. I am quite the chocolate queen.
Thankful Three
  1. For Crispix cereal
  2. For DVR
  3. For Boggle

I liked the book way better than the movie but I did go see the movie. I kind of thought Kate Hudson was overacting a little. But overall, I love chick flicks and was happy to see it! This cake sounds delish!! And I missed your blog! Nice to be reading blogs again tonight! I love being 32! :)
