  • Yes, usually on my birthday I do the same thing I do everyday. This birthday was special because i was at the hospital the entire day waiting for my grandchildren to be born.

  • LOL, I don't get gray hair, mine is snow white, and since the rest of my hair is dark brown, they can be seen from a mile away!! lol. sigh. Birthdays are totally depressing for me anymore. They are just a reminder that I am now a "mam" instead of "miss", I rarely get carded, and my parents, kids, etc. are also older. I usually find myself in a horrible mood, and at some point during the day, I lock myself in the bathroom and cry for a min or 2 at least. It sounds dramatic, I know, but it's just something that I go through every yr now, and i"m only 29, I can't imagine what it will be like 10 yrs from now
