I have always been one to count down to everything!
When I was a kid it was my birthday, Christmas, the last day of school and even vacations.
When my brother was in collage my sister and I made him a chain that counted down from his graduation. The funny thing is that he had more than 3 months left and the chain went around his entire room.
I remember when I had something like 120 something days until my wedding day.
My sister and I got married 71 days apart.
The list really can go on, but then I will get an email from my brother saying I just might be OCD like him.
Well every year I get a phone call on April 26th that goes a little something like this:
"Hey Sis, Happy Half Birthday! Only 6 more months!"
I love it! I get a great laugh every year when my sister calls me to remind me that I can officially start counting down!
Every year it gets a little less exciting though (by only a little) because today when I got the call it was "You will be 30 in a year and a half."
Great! Well, all I can say to that is this:
"I will always be 5 years younger than you!"
