Happy Birthday to ME! Oh goodie. I'm older.
My day was magical. :) It started off with a special gift from my cats... a dead rodent in my bedroom. It moved on to a become a day of riding humid buses with sweaty Europeans... and was topped off by my washing machine which refuses to spin my clothes dry (so I pull them out of a puddle). My night ended with my skype phone not working so I couldn't talk to any of my friends or family...
ACTUALLY -My birthday wasn't bad, I was kidding... kinda. :) I had a good day with Scotty and ladybugs and a party with some Americans. I actually got two parties! The day before my birthday some moms from school had a surprise birthday party for me. :) The house was decorated in USA everything, I had cake with MANY red, white, and blue candles and presents to open. Very nice!! THEN my American friends had a lunch party for me on my birthday. Erin, who admits to not ever cooking, interrogated my family to find out my favorite food and then cooked me potatoes for lunch. :) I even met a new American friend too! Cool!
Erin also gets extra points because she tomorrow she is willingly watching my four kids so I can go out the movies with my husband.... and her "wrapped gift" to me - candy for the movies and movie tickets. :) How cool is she?!!
Thanks to everyone who was involved in my birthday everything!!!
Where was my family in all of this birthday extravaganza? My husband is having a "busy week" at work. These weeks come up every few months; the price to pay for our recent five week vacation. :) So we plan on my birthday to be celebrated this Saturday. :) That said, the girls were also nice to me on my actual birthday. Michaela and Sierra watched Scotty and Andrea and I got to eat my French Toast dinner while it was still warm! :)
