So, today is my birthday. *applause* Thank you, thank you. I'm so glad I was born too. 28 now. 2 more years till 30. 2 more years till I've been at my job for a decade. That sounds like permanance. I better do something drastic in the next 2 years. Oh the pressure.
Today though, today is good. I actually had a little family party last night, where I cooked my famous chicken and dumplings and my mom and brother came for dinner. Patrick and Cali both slept through dinner and my 13 year old brother had an adolescent moment and stormed out of the house, but I still had fun. My mom and I, and Emily and Damien had dinner and cake, which was oh so good. So deliciously chocolatey, oreo cookie, good. Then I opened my present from my mom. Cute outfit and earrings. I'm an earring whore. Some people obsess over shoes, some over purses....I'm an earring girl. Are you all paying attention? It's not too late for birthday presents you know.
Emily was appalled by my only receiving one present, so they played a game of wrapping up stuff around the house to give to me. This is so much more fun than it sounds. I received a diet dr pepper, a homemade card, a homemade poem, a child wrapped in a blanket and a very awesome dance by my little boy.
Reasons that today is a great birthday so far:
-I fit into the size 7 jeans my mom bought me. That is only one size bigger than my pre-EMILY teenage self, and there is no discernable return of the muffin top
-The kids are off school, so it was only me getting ready this morning
-I'm off Weds-Sun, so today is actually like my Thursday already!
-I'm going out tonight to see Twilight and I am embarrassed at how excited I am
-Gas is $2.07
Happy Birthday to ME!!
