Happy Birthday to Me!

I hope you all are enjoying the 30th anniversary of the date of my birth. (Or I guess it would technically be the 29th anniversary celebration?!?) Here it is cold, but very sunny. So I'm happy for the sunshine!

I am at work today, since I have a hard time justifying taking a day off in the middle of the week. Especially after being home sick with a cold on Monday. But I can't say I'm getting much work done, or that I feel *too* guilty about my lack of productivity. I forget things, now that I'm older! And I'm slowing down, too.

Tonight I'm going to go home after work and do NOTHING. I'm going to try my hardest to resist the urge to wash dishes, or throw in a load of laundry. I'm going to lay on the couch with a good book in one hand and a champagne flute of sparkling fruit juice in the other. I will then cover myself in cat treats to make Gomez pay me some attention while Keith and Beckett are out for their walk.

Once Keith gets back, we're going out for dinner (Mexican) and a movie. I'm really looking forward to going on a date with him— we don't do it nearly often enough. I'm even a little giddy, trying to figure out what to wear!

After we get home from the movie, I will NOT check my email. I will still avoid the dirty dishes and piles of laundry. I will NOT do any work for our side business. I will relax, maybe knit a bit more of the baby blanket, and go to be a relaxed, refreshed 30-year-old.

Thanks, Gege! It was a great birthday. I have high hopes for my 30th year, and it's off to a good start!:)

Hay Megan! Happy (belated birthday!)

My chaotic life has led me to living more in the real world and less in the cyber world... ergo I've not caught up with you in ages!! My bad!!

And just to get technical... it IS the 30th anniversary of your birthday, is it not? It would the 29th anniversary of your FIRST birthday as your first birthday is your first anniversary, no? How confused am I? ;)

...and that was supposed to be (belated) birthday. Not (belated birthday). Arrrrrg TGIF!

Bren: Nice to see you again! Feel free to pop in anytime, even if your hectic life has kept you away for awhile. And thanks for the birthday wishes!
