2012 is going to be a big year…for me at least and probably for lots of other hip-young-ish baby boomers who remember their parents at 50 and remember how old they seemed!
In 2011 my birthday celebrations were postponed due to the fact that my birthday is March 12 and I live in Japan. If I’ve learned anything this year it is to live each day to the fullest, as you never know what tomorrow may bring. And so, in keeping with my belief in going big or going home, I am going to do it BIG. Here’s the invitation I sent to my friends about six months ago.
HOLD THE DATE – MARCH 2012
WHAT: FILMING of THE HANGOVER 3
STARRING: MARIA AND HER BFF’S
WHEN: MARCH 2012
I’M GIVING YOU LOTS OF NOTICE SO YOU CAN PLAN, BOOK TIME OFF, ARRANGE BABYSITTING, WORKOUT, SAVE MONEY, PRE-DETOX ETC.
SPOUSES ARE INCLUDED ESPECIALLY WHEN THE BILL ARRIVES.
PLEASE COME AND HELP ME CELEBRATE!
AND IF YOU FOLLOW THE MAYAN CALENDAR YOU MAY WANT TO PARTY IT UP BEFORE DECEMBER!
So far, about 15 friends from far and wide are heeding the call to party (not surprising given my friends and the promise of free tequila)
And since I am an online person and love to share my trials and tribulations publicly, I thought I’d start a blog about it. The Party. And the turning 50. And with age comes an allowance for pontification, so there will be some of that.
I have just three months left to the big 5-0. Of course, I want to lose ten pounds, have wrinkle-free-sunspot-free skin and learn the Kama Sutra (I hope there are no upside-down positions, as I’ve noticed in the mirror at yoga class, gravity is not my friend). I will start my anti-aging campaign today, with you as my witnesses. Will it make a difference? Will it be the physical or the mental adjustments that make the biggest difference? You be the judge. And if you feel like joining the program at any time please feel free!
