Why I have a blog

Since I never seem to get around to sending out Christmas cards or letters, I decided to blog a bit to keep my fans updated. :-)

Birth order

Dear siblings,
I've decided to relinquish my position as eldest child to the one who just turned 40. Clearly, he MUST be older than I am. Hmm...I probably should check in with the brother in-between to see if HE wants to be the eldest. He will be 42 soon, and that is definitely older than I want to be right now. So, I would appreciate it if one of you would step up to the plate and trade places with me. Or, maybe I should get in line behind Beth. She turned 36 this year. I like the sound of that!

Love from your younger sister!


  1. I am said newly appointed "older brother." I am not sure I want the gig. This birthday was the most fun in over a decade, however, I have aged quite a bit this year as I make my living trying to help people navigate through the investment landscape to protect and prepare for their futures. Needless to say, I have several new gray hairs on my head and many long attached follicles have abandoned ship. I would like to note that this is still not enough evidence (nor age enough to catch Holly) to make the case for a change in birth order, so I must respectfully decline. Besides, my older brother is much more level headed than I and he shall be "oldest" should you decide to relinquish the throne.


  2. Brad always wanted to be the "Big" brother. So, he can be oldest. Besides, he is the one with more advanced hair maturity.
    Speaking of maturity, I'm sure I can't claim the title of most mature. I still waste most of my time with toys and games.
