My birthday is on Monday, March 19th. To celebrate my upcoming birthday, here are:
#24 - 13 Things About My Birthday
- I was born on March 19, 1972.
- So this year I will be 35 years old.
- I was born in Selkirk, Manitoba, which is not far from Winnipeg.
- My birth mother was 16 years old, and gave me up for adoption, because she wanted me to have a better life than she could give me at that point in time.
- My parents were able to adopt me because they were Catholic. My birth mother was Catholic and she wanted me to go to a Catholic family.
- My parents had tried to have children for many years, but were unsuccessful, and so wanted to adopt a baby. I was that baby.
- My astrological sign is Pisces, although I was born just a few days before Aries begins. If you believe is astrology (I don't, but find it entertaining) I have some Pisces characteristics, and some Aries characteristics.
- Throughout elementary and high school, there was about a 50-50 chance that my birthday would fall during March break.
- In Grade 12, my friends threw me a surprise birthday party, the only surprise party I've ever had. And I was surprised! I thought I was going over to a friend's house to work on a school project.
- Here is a list of famous people born on March 19. These include Bruce Willis and Glenn Close.
- The best birthday present I ever received was for my 15th birthday. I chose a Seal Point Siamese for my present, whom I named Whiskers, because he was missing the whiskers on one side of his face when I adopted him. He had lost them playing with his brother. Whiskers went to the Rainbow Bridge on September 1, 2006, just two months shy of his 20th birthday.
- Back in Canada, I would normally celebrate my birthday with my family: my husband, my parents and my sister. We all lived in the greater Ottawa region, so it was easy to get together for holidays and birthdays.
- This year, I will celebrate with my husband and our Sphynx kitten, Dragonheart. Hubby and I will celebrate by going out to dinner either on Saturday or Sunday. I have a massage scheduled for Monday, on my birthday.
