I am the Birthday Princess

So today 2.17.80 is my birthday!! I am 26 years old!!! WOW. This is my year. The year of Marla. There is so much I hope to achieve and accomplish this year. And, I know I will!! I am so excited. It is hard to believe I am almost 2 months post-op (3.3.06). I truly have been given a new beginning. It is so amazing.

I am going out with some friends tonight. My family and I will celebrate my birthday the first week in March when my brother will be home for his Spring Break!!! My birthday festivities will be Saturday the 25th as 2 friends are away! Dinner at a mexican restaurant, cozmic bowling, and then hanging out a bar. I can never just celebrate my birthday in one day. Many of celebration are required.

Looking back over the last 26 years:

I remember:

learning logo on a green screen brown box apple computer in kindergarten (1985)

life before answering machines, call waiting, caller id, cell phones

boxy cell phones when they first came out

tape players in cars

no cds

WOW and so much more, but I am saving that for another post.
