52 — The Full Deck

Da Goddess @ 00:01

I’m 52 years old. Five. Two. A full deck. Or am I the “fool” deck? Sometimes it does seem like I’ve been given that role. But, nah. I think I’m falling into the positive camp this year. Despite all the ups and downs, I’m glad I’m here. Even if I am a bit worse for wear.

Technically, I hit “over-the-hill” a good while back. Emotionally, I think 39 was that year. Physically, ugh. I don’t know when it happened (maybe 2005 when I got hurt?). All I know is that none of it matters because I’m still hanging in here and that needs to be celebrated!

I’m not sure how I’ll celebrate, but it might include cake. It’ll probably include cake. Okay, cake will be involved. Are you happy? Yes, cake. One of the few pleasures you can share with as few or as many people as you’d like and not get side-eye for doing so. Except maybe from your doctor who’s worried about your weight and your blood sugar. But if you don’t tell, I won’t tell, m’kay?

52. If I were a deck of cards I’d be complete. Unless you want to play pinochle or canasta or some game requiring an expanded deck. But if that’s the case, why haven’t you invited me over for a game? Fair warning, I suck at pinochle and kick ass at canasta! You’ve been warned.

Go grab some cake and we can eat at the same time. I’ll be here. Just pull up a chair when you’re ready.


  1. Happy Birthday!! I’ll happily share some cake as long as it’s gluten free! And over the hill?? I’ll be 61 in a few months and still not, so you’ve a long way to go! :D

  2. Happy Happy Happy B~day Joanie!! You’ve had so much on your plate lately (always?)…I hope you finally got to have some cake on that plate too!

    Cheers to us May birthday girls. We may be over the hill, but I like to think we’re forever young. After all, we’re Geminis…we can be both!! xo

  3. Thank you both for the lovely birthday wishes! If I could, I’d have a party and you’d both be invited. Pam, gotcha on the special order cake. Marcie, you and I will celebrate with the good stuff! Also, happy birthday, Marcie! I’m sorry I didn’t know. Now I do and you’ll have to make sure to give me the exact date so I can put it on my calendar next to your name.

    Hugs all around!
