Thursday Thirteen

Thursday Thirteen
My birthday is on Monday, March 19th. To celebrate my upcoming birthday, here are:

#24 - 13 Things About My Birthday

  1. I was born on March 19, 1972.

  2. So this year I will be 35 years old.

  3. I was born in Selkirk, Manitoba, which is not far from Winnipeg.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. My parents had tried to have children for many years, but were unsuccessful, and so wanted to adopt a baby. I was that baby.

  7. 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.

  8. Throughout elementary and high school, there was about a 50-50 chance that my birthday would fall during March break.

  9. 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.

  10. Here is a list of famous people born on March 19. These include Bruce Willis and Glenn Close.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

There is always a chance my birthday is going to fall on some sort of Easter related day...this year it falls on Good Friday! Talk about a bummer of a day to turn 30!

Hope you have a great birthday!
Happy Thursday... :)

Happy Birthday!! It's hard celebrating a birthday when you're used to family being around. But I know you'll still have a wonderful time.

Have a wonderful birthday! I loved reading about Whiskers. Anyone who gives a homeless cat such a good life deserves a happy birthday! My TT is up -- movie quotes. Please feel free to stop by.

Dane Bramage said...

Have a Happy Birthday! You mentiond a sister. Is she from your adoptive parents or birth mom?

Sorry about Whiskers but what the heck is a Rainbow Bridge?

My T13 #33 is up it is the 13 Quotes About Men Edition Stop by if you get the chance.

JAM said...

Really nice T13. I keep coming up with odd things for mine, I guess I've already bared my soul and most things about me on my blog over time. But this is what T13 is all about.

Hope you have a wonderful birthday with Hubby and Dragonheart.

Happy Birthday! sounds like you have some enjoyable days planned.

my TT this week is continued from last week. 13 more research projects impacted by the impending library closure. i've also posted an explanation for the closure last friday after several people asked why.

three weeks to go... someone stop the clock please......
