My 38th Year

Henry will kill me for telling the world, but I am going to anyway.  I just turned 38 today.  It’s funny, I feel no different than yesterday. 

I had the best day.  Indulge me while I give you a little run down of the day.  We all slept until 7. This is late for me and Henry, but not so late that we can’t get the girls up and fed and out  the door.  The girls got dressed in their new matching dresses that Poppa bought them last night.  They were dressed by the time I was out of the shower and popped out from behind the door to sing Happy Birthday to me.  There is nothing cuter than a 3 and a 6 year old singing at 7:30 in the morning!  Once they were out the door Dad and Cindi called.   I got more well wishes.  Then Momma called….she let me sleep a little late just in case.  She usually calls at dawn…believe me, I count this as a blessing.  She called after 6am!

Then the maintenance man showed up and installed a tiny dishwasher in our apartment.  I am so thankful.  e have been washing dishes for 9 months and I cook, almost every night!  This was a blessing and it was on my birthday, so I count it as a birthday present.  Then Allison called.  Oh, I forgot to mention that Becca put the cutest birthday wish to me on Ravelry…she’s a sweet super cheeseball!  In the middle of all of this Wendy called.

This afternoon I went to Target while Henry got the girls.  I picked up pizza so that I had a night off from cooking.  I got home and we walked to an opening of some beautiful ceramics.  it was stunning.  Here’s a picture of the invitation.  The little leaf on it was a piece that a friend of the artist gave to Grey and Mycah.  It is a steel leaf.  This was prevalent in the artist’s show.  The girls were thrilled! 


We got home and had out pizza.  Then Henry busts out the cake!

Then I get a lot of sweet handmade gifts from Grey. 

Then my big gift from Henry……..wait for it…….wait…….a video camera!!!!!!  Oh yeah!  We have not had one and I am so excited.  It is charging now. 

During this time Grey is going back and forth to the mirror in the bathroom worrying about her loose tooth.  Next thing we know, she runs out and said it fell out!!!  This is so cool.  She lost her first non-dentist assisted tooth on my birthday. 

I ask you…how can I get any luckier.  From dawn till dusk I had family and friends wishing me the bast and loving on me.  sigh…life’s pretty damn good

    I’d offer to sing to you, too, but it would be so much uglier than the 3 and 6 year old version. Happy birthday and even happier days to come!

    Grrrr! I wish I had known it was your birthday. Grey mentioned it this evening when I saw her & Henry. You little sneak!

    Anyway…. Happy birthday, friend. I’m so pleased to know you.
