Today I feel lazy, so because it is the DAY OF ME, whereupon I turn 44. I said to Fred over the weekend “I can’t believe I’m almost 43.” He said “Oh, are you staying at 43?”, and I had to do the MATH to figure out how old I really am. When I was a kid and old people (44 was ancient to me back then. Now it seems REALLY YOUNG. Shaddup.) had to stop and think about how old they were, I figured they were messing with me, because who on EARTH doesn’t know how old they are. Yeah.

Anyway, I’m going to go settle on the couch and catch up on my TV-watching, and not do a thing all day long because it’s MY DAY and it’s all about ME. (At least until I get bored, of course. I might vacuum. We’ll see.)

Back tomorrow!

Also, so you don’t have to go without your kitteh fix, here I am getting my very first kitten for my (I think) sixth birthday, so it was mumblety-mumble years ago. I don’t know. I can’t do the math. Her name was Suzy and I lurved her.

  1. Happy birthday Robin, what an adorable photo!!! I love it! Hope your day is a happy one!

  2. Happy Birthday, Robyn! Wishing you much health, happiness and prosperity in your next year! –and remember, you are only as old as you feel! Have a WONDERFUL day, you deserve it.

  3. Happy Birthday to a wonderful lady!

    P.S.: I have to stop and figure out how old I am too!

  4. Happy YOU Day!! And since I stopped celebrating birthdays a while ago, I, too, don’t really remember my exact age anymore.

  5. Happy Birthday Robyn!! Have a wonderful ME day, you deserve it! Hope it is filled with kitteny goodness!

    I turned 44 in September and I did exactly the same thing, thought I was turning 43..had to do the math..oh well, just a number, your only as old as you feel! 🙂

  6. Age is only important if you are a wine or a cheese. For the rest of us, it’s all in our heads. (And in my head, I am in my twenties until someone reminds me that I am not, then it’s all “How the h*ll did I get to be this old, anyway?!”)

    Have a great YOU day!

    PS I am older than you. And I lovelovelove the pic with you and your first kitten.

  7. Happy birthday, Robin! Today is also my birthday–my first annual 59th birthday. So you’re a spring chicken in comparison.

    Let’s enjoy this wonderful day!


  8. You’re just a kid! Happy forty-something birthday and enjoy your “Me Day”! Love the picture of you and your first kitty…who would have known you’d have a houseful some day…

  12. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo! It’s Robyn Day!!!! (I’m 41 so believe me – 44 is NOT old…)

  13. My sis always says we should NEVER turn away from the camera, regardless of our age; because we’ll always look better today than we will tomorrow. Oh dear, painfully true and look how cute you were as a kid. So, smile bravely into the camera today and click away. Have a great U-day! And thanks for sharing all your kitties!

  14. Awww. Adorable picture! Our family also got us my first little black kitten on my sixth birthday… am I going to end up just like you? Haha!

    Hope you are having a wonderful time today and the cats are treating you with extra cuddles, or less harassment (whichever you prefer). HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

  15. Teughcats took ALL my words! 🙂 Have a great day — and tell the kitties that they must treat you extremely nicely on YOUR day! 🙂

  16. Happy Birthday, Robyn! Hope it’s been a good one.

    On a related note (i.e., related to forgetting how old you are), I had this conversation with my husband last night:

    Husband: “So what do you want to do for your 36th next month?”
    Me (glaring): “I turn 35 — NOT — 36 next month.”
    Husband: “Oh right. I just keep rounding up and thinking I’m already 40, and I know you are five years younger, so I was doing the math.”

    As I told him, it’s fine if he wants to make HIMSELF older than he actually is, but he’d better leave me out of it.

  17. Happy Birthday Robin – I love lurking on the edge of your life and reading all about your kittens, ducks, dogs, chickens and shinanigins (spelling?). Have a great day! You deserve it – I’m your number one fan in Ottawa (that doesn’t sound creepy does it?)

  18. Happy Birthday!! And I couldn’t help but notice I am comment #43, equivalent to your former age.

    Don’t worry about aging, you’re only as old as you act!!

  19. P.S. LOVE the photo!! You look exactly the same as you do now! And this is comment #44!! W00t!!

  20. Happy Birthday, Robin! We are so glad that Suzy trained you to be such a kitteh fan!

  21. Happy Birthday! 44 is young!!!! (I’m so old that the kids I baby sat for as a teenager are now your age.) My first kitty was named Timmy, later renamed Rosemary (although he was definitely a male — long story!), but my first puppy was named Suzy, spelled exactly that way.

  22. Happy Birthday Robyn! I hope the kitties were sweet enough to entertain you all day. I would hate for you to feel bored enough to vacuum on your birthday. (Who am I kidding? I vacuum every day, birthday included, and I only have 3 furballs. Hopefully you’re not as neurotic as I am!)

  23. Late ‘Happy Birthday, Robyn!’ Hope you had a great day and didn’t get too bored. oh, you know how trends over there show that black cats are adopted last? Well, supposedly here in Oz white cats are adopted last! ‘cos of the increased skin cancer risk or some such nonsense. so there. and i have recently worked out the the USofA is actually bigger than Australia. can’t say i’m pleased…i always thought we had the greater land mass…hm!
