DH baked me a cake ... my candles we're strawberries!
So yesterday started off slow as DH had to work the night before & was exhausted, DD was at riding lessons, and DS was here with me doing his school work. The little booger took every opportunity to get away from school work by showering me with hugs and kisses. I didn't get upset over it though ... sometimes I can't be such a hard ars teacher.
So I picked DD up from riding lessons & she tells me that I had three calls to wish me happy birthday ... one was my mom which was a little bit of a shocker, the next one was my dad and the third one came up private so I'm thinking it might have been Lisa. If it was thank you for calling me Lisa ... sorry I missed your call.
Anyway, called mom back ... she sang happy birthday to me. Started telling me how my niece has been sick this past week. Come to find out she took my 10 yr. old niece in to get the cervical cancer shot. I thought you had to be at least 11 for this shot. Oh well, I voiced my concerns with her & she assured me that my niece would be just fine cause her ex is a nurse & looked into it. My question is ... why does a 10 year old need to have these shots so young ... what's the rush to make her grow up?
Called my dad back ... I think he's about to pick up & move again. He hasn't really flat out said he was but usually when he starts taking a lot of vacation time that's what it means & this is his second vacation in less than 2 months time. Business is slow right now so he said he could use the time off. I know he works hard during the summer months and things always slow down in the winter months but come on ... he hasn't done this since he's been living here but this is what he did when he was considering moving here. Visited us 3 times in 3 months! I'm a little sad by this cause I have loved my dad living so close ... when dad leaves that means my brother will be following him shortly after. =(
Anyway, hung up with dad and my baby brother called to wish me happy birthday. I love that kid. He's not really a kid anymore but he is 9 years younger than me so he's a kid. =) He seems happy that dad is going out of town cause that means he gets to be boss while he's gone. Who doesn't want to be boss for a little while right?!
Anyway, hubby woke up ... came out in his undies singing happy birthday to me ... yes it was funny but after everything I had heard on the phone laughter is just what I needed. He took me out to lunch .. Primos ... I ordered what I thought would be a healthy mean, a sandwich with potato salad. What I got was a fried mess! I couldn't eat it all cause I couldn't really swallow the food. It was called a Monte Cristo ... the board said it was a warm ham & swiss sandwhich ... what it didn't say was that it was deep fried on french toast & sprinkled with powdered sugar & cranberry sauce on the side. Now if I wanted french toast I would have ordered that ... but I didn't. Oh well, it was a new place that we wanted to try out ... one we won't be going back to.
After lunch DH took me shopping ... told me I could buy whatever I wanted. It's not that he didn't know what to get me ... it's the fact that I have been telling him for months not to get me anything at all. I just wanted a nice sit down dinner with him & the kids. I mean it is just another day in my life. I'm not sad by turning another year older ... I don't even hide my age from people. I'm proud to be 36!!! I have never freaked out by my age. Why do some people do that? Age is just a number right? You're only as old as you feel. I feel like I'm in my late 20's so it's all good as far as I'm concerned.
So I bought lots of clothes! =) I love clothes but I'm really picky with what I buy. I went to Victoria's Secret for a new shirt, sweats, and a bra ... I love the color PINK and they had tons of pink in so I had fun. Then I went to Kolhs but didn't find anything that I likes, Ross ... nothing ... was thirsty so we stopped in Target & I found clothes. 2 beautiful shirts & a pair of casual pants. I don't have many of those. Jeans or sweats is my usual attire but every once in a while I look like I'm dressed to impress. Not often, but sometimes. =) Took the kids to the book store ... I was sure there was a book I wanted but honestly as soon as I saw the shelves of books I couldn't remember the name of even one book or author that I wanted. As I was walking out the door I though ooooh Nicholas Sparks ... his newest doesn't come out until Monday & I already have it on pre-order.
I was tired from shopping so we came back to the house. DH started dinner ... home made Chinese sweet & sour chicken with white rice & broccoli. Yummmmmmmy! The for desert he made angel food cake. We were gonna have fresh strawberries on it but it was so good alone that we didn't add a thing to it.
DH had to go into work but that was ok ... CBS had a present for me SURVIVOR!!!!!! =) It's one of my favorite shows. Looks like it could be a good season this year.
So that was my day. Nothing exciting but it was fun.
Oh ... my girlfriend in TN called me. She NEVER calls me unless she has a problem that she needs me to help her work through ... she called me just to wish me a happy birthday. It was so good to hear from her & it be because of me. You just don't know how draining it can be when a friend only calls when they need something & never call to just say HI... how are you doing?
