Happy birthday to me

Hi All, Thank you for the wishes. I had a wonderful birthday today. It was a lot of fun at work , when I came home is when I realized that I wanted to go back to that stage of my  life where I did not know what “Happy Birthday” really meant and was excited about that day and the  new dress that I can wear to school and distribute candies and then cut a cake and eat it without being conscious about the calorie count of it.
When I was young I wanted to be older. During exams when I was studying subject books my mom used to read magazines. I thought to myself when I grow older I can do the same but now, I want to be really young and sleep in my mom’s lap and my parents will take care of everything for me.I dont know why my mind works like this. I now think of “Birthday”  as a reminder that I am losing one more year of being young. As you grow older more responsibilities fall on you. Mentally you are not ready most of the times but you have to act your age.As said “Time and Tide waits for no man”, time will fly and I might want this age back. Being in the present is really a gift and I am telling myself to be happy with what I have now.

Finally a small tip if your birthdays are around the corner, you can find out if some of your favorite eat out places have some specials for birthdays when you sign in online in their website and become a club member. Some places offer a free dessert with the purchase of an adult entree and some places offer free entree. I used to do this long back but if you read this post (http://preethi-pretty.blogspot.com/2014/02/what-to-cook-for-week-some-ideas.html), you will know that I am not a big fan of eating out now at this stage of my life.You can find this out on their website and see if you can get free food. Have a nice day and see you soon with a nice topic.
