Austin Girl

i'm a mommy, a supportive wife (mostly), a loving daughter, a lazy but well-meaning friend, a texan, a reformed party girl, a slacker, a seeker, a chameleon, a reluctant L.Alien, trying to find the meaning of life in los angeles.

I think I'll start blogging again

This morning I poured myself a cup of coffee (my favorite part of the day! that first cup.) I pulled out my Texas Champion Rosebowl cup and read the date: January 4, 2006. 2006? What the....! I KNOW I celebrated my 40th birthday with a Rosebowl party when UT kicked some USC butt (I was working at USC at the time, so it was a very friendly competition.) Problem is, I was born in 1967. So there MUST have been a misprint on the cup. So I go online and look it up on the official Rosebowl site. Sure enough, the game was January 06. What is wrong with my memory? Still not believing this I decide to look at my old blog that I don't keep up. There posted on the internet for all posterity is a log of my 2006 and 2007 birthdays. So my best birthday ever was my 39th! Our L.A. friends, Shiner Bock, Texas Chili in our old funky apartment on 4th Ave. My 40th was nice too. After we made the spontaneous decision to jump in the car and drive from L.A. to Austin for Christmas, my family in Austin gave me a surprise party, and I got a day at the spa from my sister. Funny how memory works. I think 39 was a milestone, my last year in the 30s. Thanks blog. Thanks for clearing things up.
