When did THAT happen?

Remember when you were a kid, the anticipation of getting a gift or getting something new. It was like Christmas Day all over again! A Barbie, cassette tape of your favorite artist, Walkman, even new clothes.

Now, something simple as a new toaster has me giddy with excitement! Seriously, when did that happen? When did I become an adult?

Don't get me wrong - I would still be excited to get a new Vera or CD of my favorite artist or even an iPod. But the thought of getting a new toaster is something that got me out of bed today. I don't know if it's the prospect of a new toaster or if its the fact that WE didn't buy the toaster. It was a gift. Well, the gift was money to be used towards a new toaster. THAT'S what makes this all so exciting.

At the age of 37, I've realized that I am an adult. Oh, I still have kid-like tendencies. Those will never go away. But more & more, I get excited over the little things; toasters, coffee makers, 7.5 cu. ft. freezers.

Anyone want to come over & play Barbies?

Many blessings,

I too was thrilled with my new appliances for Christmas! Keurig coffe maker from mom, bread machine and crock pot from dad. Love it, love it, love it! I guess we're all grown up now....
