My 30th Birthday! :D

10:02 a.m. Obligatory birthday post! I’m 30 years old today!!!


I caved and broken into my savings/blessings jar by prying it with a hammer. I counted what I’ve saved in spare change since September 17th. Hey, the fact that I lasted as long as I did is cool.

I got about $43.75.

I’m too old to get gifts for my birthday, but I at least want a day on the town. This day should be better than an average day. It’s a milestone. It’s 30.

My toes are so cold it hurts, I might add. Though a long walk could warm me up. 

I’m leaving the coin change behind to continue saving for another day and taking $34 on a thrifty shopping spree. Doesn’t sound like much but between that and a dollar store, it can stretch. 

10:24 Leaving. Got a long walk and twentyonepilots ahead!!!

11:10 a.m. Made it to the thrift shop in less than an hour on foot. Therefore, I’m taking a ‘much needed’ break before I head inside. 

12:00 p.m. Finished and THRILLLLLEDD!! We got a VCR at home and I just got a whole BUNCH of Disney classics on VHS (which is great cause the DVDs are Uber expensive) and I think the kids would really love marathoning them when they visit.

In the meantime, I get up to celebrate my 30th by watching Beauty and the Beast (the classic animated version) which, believe it or not, I don’t think I’ve ever watched! And I’ve really been wanting, too. Gotta get some Gaston, right? 😂

I’m also very into Toy Story and have been longing to watch it again, so that’s another thing I’m ‘really’ looking forward to doing.

I got black printer ink, just hoping it’s the right brand. I need paper, so the idea is to pick that up next. 

Fun birthday. Praise and thank God. It’s already turning out to be above all I ask  or think. In Jesus Name, Amen.

P.S. 19 bucks left. Not only did I score a whole bunch of movies, but 25 percent!!!!!!! Lol.

God help me, I gotta carry this all home in a backpack and bag. Lol.

12:59 p.m. Got what I needed, and then some. At McDonalds for a rest break and to carb up before a long walk home.

I’m hoping there’s a small chance April’s up, and maybe she’ll save me the walk, but we’ll see. 🤗🤷🏻‍♀️🙏

1:14 p.m. Good news? April’s awake and coming soon. She just needs a bit to compose herself.

Bad news? She was ranting a lot and she didn’t know it was my birthday...but we’re all cool. I forgive.

At least I won’t have to hurt my hands lugging a huge bag of goodies home for nearly an hour. 😂

Also, I’m giving her my food money. She needs the comfort food more than I do at this point. 😂 I just want my pie when I get home. 

1:44 p.m. Home. Broke. Unloaded. Got McDonalds and pics done. Almost ready to set up for a Disney birthday!

P.S. Didn’t take a pic, but also got gobstoppers and baby sunglasses as an extra Christmas gift. I still need to rewrap some since the cats clawed them up. 🙄

2:12 p.m. We tried. Broken VCR. Guess buying one is on the to-do list lol.

2:45 p.m. I had my pie. I had a cupcake. Tinkered with the VCR and THANK THE LORDDDDDD!!!!! It works far. I was gonna start with Beauty and the Beast but Toy Story is in, with its vintage lovable commercials, and I’m just gonna enjoy this working first. Lol.

4:28 p.m. The movie was fun! Good times. As expected, the VCR malfunctioned afterwards, BUT I’m glad I decided to watch the movie through anyway, instead of fussing right then an there, so I at least got to enjoy one Disney flick.

Rick said we could borrow his VCR, whenever he brings it over, God wiling, so that’s a relief. Buying all those VHS tapes (at 50 cents a piece before sale cost) wasn’t a total waste. 😂🤗🙏

It’s been a fun birthday, which is winding down now. 🤗

7:08 p.m. Feeling the sugar crash hit. So many sugar. Rick’s VCR didn’t work and the other one refuses to work again. Ah well. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Buying one on the cheap is always and option, right? God willing. 

7:21 p.m. Made my comparison Instagram post between this year and last year. 🤗 I’d been meaning to do it all day and almost thought I wouldn’t.

P.S. This new 30 year old is feeling artsy the traditional sense. If only I’d clean the table off of my days’ mess. The broken VCR and pile of new and currently unusable tapes, that is.

11:13 p.m. Art finished (Dollar Store acrylics on Canvas) and drying under a thick layer of mod podge. I’m dirty and I'm sleepy. But happy day today.

11:42 p.m. Showered. Super relaxed despite pending soreness...feels a strange idea coming on.

Regarding my birthday.

Just a brief...compilation book. I did have the tendency to record my birthday since my maybe having a year by year compilation of my birthdays would be something neat. 😂

Brief, but neat. Since I wrote this down now, perhaps I’ll recall later, God Willing. Nee noo.

Random fact: I often utter ‘Nee-noo’ to myself on occasions. Preferably in happy circumstances. That’s something fun to recall one day.

EDIT: Also it turned out the printer ink WAS the wrong kind. For some reason my brain confuses the Canon and Epson brand. Egads. Thankfully it was only three dollars.

All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
