Right, where were we? Ah, right before my birthday with a pre-birthday Goodwill haul. B is so good at planning birthday dates, and that one was an excellent one to be sure. My actual birthday was a bit chilly, and, dare I say, a bit less fun. Thanks to hormones and some untimely not-so-kind words, I was upset, and nothing seemed to go right. People were too cold at the baseball game. The restaurant I picked didn’t suit everyone. I ended up crying in front of everyone and feeling stupid. It was not the best birthday. There were, however, some excellent highlights, like seeing these people:
and getting my new baby, a sewing machine! B and my parents had pooled their birthday funds and purchased an AWESOME sewing machine for me! I need to take a class to get myself started, but I cannot wait to start creating!
I also made a stop by Goodwill to use my birthday 25% discount with my Goodwill card. I only ended up picking up a few necklaces because we were in a time crunch to get to the baseball game, but it was kind of fun to tell the cashier it was my birthday. Yes, I am one of those people who loves to tell others that it’s her birthday. I have a countdown starting April 1. B is well aware of when my birthday is, and there is little opportunity for him to forget when my birthday is because I refuse to stop reminding him. I wouldn’t say I nag, per se, I just like to get excited about events. I had a day-by-day countdown for our wedding. I keep countdowns for trips or when people come to visit (and I also post them on those people’s Facebook walls for good measure). I just like getting enthusiastic! All of you Debbie Downers can exit here.
But fear not! Even with my blah birthday, I am bound and determined to make year 26 pretty darn great. And you know what? So far, it hasn’t treated me too badly. I have, after all, done a bit of traveling…
But those are all stories for another day!
Have a wonderful (hopefully less humid) week, everyone!
