The Fives

Fifty-five years ago today, on the 5th of December, 1955, at 5:50 in the morning, I came along. (I've been waiting a long time to get to that string of fives.)

I've had my ups and downs since then, but all in all it's been pretty good, and I can't complain.

To celebrate my birthday, the rain stopped yesterday and gave me a brilliant day of cold wind and swirling leaves, so after spending a great morning with roseambr shopping for dinner-plate-making materials at Bullseye Glass, I rode Eleanor O to all my Saturday errands, including a wonderful massage.

(The massage was coincidental and not intentionally a birthday present. My job has damaged my left shoulder and emergency treatment was in order.)



Today I weighed myself for the first time in probably fifteen years. This was an interesting experience, vital to my plan of open-eyed, data-driven, reality-based weight reduction and healthy eating for the remaining 40 or so years which I have no reason to think won't be alloted to me.

I actually weigh 20 or 30 pounds less than I had estimated (based on my oh-so-accurate self-concept), so getting on the shiny new scale this morning zoomed me that much closer towards my goal and wasn't nearly as traumatic an experience as I'd feared.

Still, it's a powerful number, so maybe I'll work up to disclosing it later. For today I'll stick with the birthday fives.
