Happy Birthday to ME!!

Well, I managed to make it through another year. Yesterday was "the big day".

In my family, it's tradition that when you get sung to on your birthday, it's done very badly. The older you get- the worse it gets.

Yesterday I decided that since it was my birthday, I'd sleep through one snooze from the alarm clock. And I did.

When I got to work, the girls that clean The Office were there - and they brought me flowers! And the girl I share an office with bought my lunch!

All together now, "Awwwwwwwwww".

Anyway, when I got off work I went to the tanning bed - at the one I go to, you tan for free on your birthday! YIPPEE!!!!!!

When I walked in the door at home, C looked at me and said, "What do you want me to fix for dinner?". WHAT?!?! HE'S GOING TO COOK?!?!?! And what a gourmet cook he is (HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!) - he fixed Hamburger Helper Four Cheese Lasagna and Texas Toast garlic bread, but at least he cooked and I didn't have to.

While we're eating he tells me he's going in early to get some overtime on the paycheck. WOW! Dinner and overtime - what caused these stars to align right? Well, as it turns out, we do have a weekend away planned for the end of the month. He's actually working all the overtime he can between now and then to give a little better "cushion" for the trip. I CAN'T WAIT!!

So, all in all, I had a wonderful birthday. God's given me another year. With a good man. Given me a great job. And another day to praise Him for it. Thank you, Lord.
