Today is my moms birthday and I hope she has a great one. We have always shared a birthday month because our birthdays are 3 days apart. Well technically 30 years and 3 days apart lol but 3 days between our birthday each year. We don’t really get each other a present since it kind of cancels out haha one year I gave her 20$ and she gave it back to me on my birthday 3 days later.
I love her so much and wish I could through a giant party on top of the Empire State Building but at least I can write her this happy birthday blog post.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE BEST MOM EVA
I know you probably have heard this one before and I know it sounds cliché but its true. I will never get married. I definitely am never having kids never ever ever. I have known since 1995 that this life is not for me. When I was ten I saw my sister and other girls swooning and talking boyfriends/marriage and I was like gross.
I just like being by myself A LOT and I always have. Although I know I will always want to have a roommate and a dog but never anyone I have to check in with when buying something and let them keep tabs on my choices gross. I like making my own decisions.
It has always been so funny to me when anybody uses ” you will never find a man” as an insult. I’m like noted, good to know, you just stated the obvious haha
If you still think I will change my mind one day then consider this. For 20 years I have known this to be true and that is a long time to take to make a decision. I have now surpassed the age my parents were when they had me.
p.s. I would like to point out that anyone who gets married I say congratulations to and I am happy for them. I can see when a marriage is beautiful and how it makes people happy. If this is the way you choose then more power to you. I did not mean to offend anyone just wanted to tell you what I have chosen. To each his own.
I have always had trouble with reading and writing. I am dyslexic and it has really been like running with a parachute on. I try to use spell check and grammar check but I know some things get past it.
I think this is a huge reason I wanted to become a blogger is because I always thought my words were useless. I never dreamed that I could write something that could be interesting. I really started blogging to help with my typing and grammar but it developed into something that was so much more. I have always tried to read, write and type at least a few hours a day to help with an ongoing treatment for dyslexia but I also know it will be there forever. So please don’t judge my blog to harshly. I’m just a person like you except I don’t have the grammar advantage you have.
All that being said I am so blessed and this little hang up does not get me down. It is a part of me and frankly it could have been much worse. I am not trying to make anyone feel sorry for me I just want grammar nazis to cool it a little bit when it comes to this blog.
Please no one take offence because I’m only called big Ashley cause I am so much taller than the other two Ashley’s at my job. Medium Ashley and baby Ashley are short enough for me to rest my elbows on their heads when I am skating. I kind of understand why people would find this offensive for me because all the girls with big in front of their name are usually lacking in the personal hygiene department. But as you can see from my photos (I hope lol) that is not the first thing that comes to mind.
My niece is so sweet and I love taking silly pictures with her. Right now I am missing my neice and nephew because they are at their grandparents house for the summer. I can’t wait for them to get back.
My mom just sent me this picture the other day. I remember being so excited and thinking how cool this looked hahahaha I did not want a picture with Santa I wanted a picture with E.T.
Hahaha I was just thinking I am going to do nothing for my birthday but I still always make everything a birthday thing. So I will order some birthday Chinese food, take some birthday naps and I am going to drink as many birthday Cokes as I feel like lol watch a birthday sunset and do some birthday Game of Thrones binge watching. I was also thinking of getting a new 40$ phone hahaha whooo hooo I am really going crazy this year this year huh. Ok not really but I like to act festive about the whole thing. Birthdays can be a very depressing time but acting festive and happy about literally nothing keeps me feeling positive.
This little feature is hilarious. I saw a few of my friends do this word cloud of their most used words on Facebook and I decided to give it a shot. Lol I guess I really talk about my work friends a lot.
I love her so much. She is such a joy to be around.
We call her baby Ashley because she is the smallest of the three Ashley’s at my job. It is also why they call me big Ashley. She is so awesome and has overcome so much. We have been best friends for I want to say 7 years but maybe more. We have been through so much together and we have stayed close. This is one person I can say really has a reason to be mad at life dealing her some bad hands but she prevailed and stood tall. Her strength is steel and her wit is even stronger. I want the world to know what a beautiful, strong, confident, dependable, loving, uplifting, glorious, champion of a friend she is.
Plus she always cheers me up when I am down.
