Things That Are Different at Thirty
It's only been one day, but I've got some new stuff already:
1) I'm a better rock climber at 30 (okay, okay, I went one day shy of 30, but I think it counts) than I was in my 20's. Yes, it was the easy routes and I am excessively tall, thereby giving me a very big advantage, but I did much better on this most recent excursion than I have in the past.
2) I have made a new friend:That is a javelina, for those of you non-southwesterners. He has decided to make my parents' front yard his new home. My sister named him Perez Hilton after seeing the human one on TV and drawing some obvious comparisons. (Truthfully, we're less like friends and more like two "beings" one of whom is deathly scared of the other and the other smells bad, but again, it's something new.)
3). I am on a triathalon team. Wendy and I will be blogging on this soon (wait with bated breath everyone). I'll only be doing the running part and it's not that long, but still the triathalon things is new to me.
4) A great present. I've been waiting for this one for a while.So, I guess 30 isn't so bad after all.
