Today is my grandmother's 85th birthday. This evening we (my brother, aunt and uncle, some cousins) are all meeting up at my parents house where my mom has made a lovely dinner to celebrate. My kids want to know why birthdays ending in 0 and 5 are a big deal, but really, I think once you hit a certain age each and every year should be celebrated big.
85. Will I reach 85? If I do, will I be spry and active for my age or a frail bitter little thing? I think I've already got the crotchety old lady thing down pretty well at the mere age of 35. Whatever awaits me, I just hope I'm greeted with my kids, grandkids, and great grandkids as my grandmother will be.
