By the Numbers

If I were into numerology, I’d say that today was chocked full of meaning. The number 3 dominates this day. How so, you ask?

Well, Tuesday is the 3rd day of the 7-day week. 3 x 7 = 21 and today, September 21st (2 + 1 = 3) is my birthday. So I am, dare I say it… 41. Of course, 4 – 1 = 3. And all of the numbers in my birthdate (9/21/63) are evenly divisable by 3.

Today also marks my 8th week “anniversary” of my weight loss surgery. I’ve lost 55 lbs in that time. (8 + 55 ÷ 21 = 3) Also in that time, I’ve stepped down 3 sizes in pants and shirts. So, this last weekend, I bought 2 new shirts and a pair of shorts (2 + 1 = 3) at Dillards for just under $30.

See what I mean about the “3” thing? It’s almost spooky!

Want more? Well, Dede reminded me that she started work at MCH on November 3rd, we went out on our first date 3 months later on February 3rd, and got married 6 months after that (2 x 3 = 6) on August 3rd, 1996. August 3rd also happens to have been Dede’s parent’s anniversary day.

Still not enough? I got a cool birthday e-card from Clemens at 3 a.m. this morning!
