Today

Today is a very special day.

It's my Birthday!!!

So far it has been really exciting

Got up at 7:15am
Took a shower, dried my hair, ate breakfast.
Kevin got Madeline up and dressed.
Took Madeline to Doodlebugs.
Forgot my lunch.
Stopped by home to get said lunch.
Taught my first class. (they sang me Happy Birthday)
Taught my second class.
Now I am eating my lunch (nothing fancy or special) and reading e-mails.
Then I will teach my third class.

It is a totally normal Thursday. (except for the singing of course.) Oh, the joys of being a grown up. Remeber when birthdays were fun? Where is the fun in my birthday?

To top if off, Kev works until 10pm tonight. Bummer for him and for me. He is off all day tomorrow so it isn't too bad. (My dad is taking me out to dinner tonight and I have Ms. Lula Belle (Madeline) so I am not alone.)

So I have to ask, how do you celebrate your birthday? Do you do anything exciting? I need help! Please, send me suggestions on how to make this day awesomer! (Yes, I said awesomer!)

Happy Birthday to you! Alexander and I are about to walk to the post office and send a card off to you. It may be late. Have a fun dinner!

If it helps, last year on my birthday instead of having a wonderful fun day with my husband that we had planned, I spent it in the waiting room of the hospital after my mother-in-law almost died. With a ticked off infant. So far you are doing good.

ok, now to answer your question...since i've been married (or since i've been adult-like), marty and i have always celebrated "birthday week". each person in the family gets to celebrate their birthday for the whole week that it falls in. it takes all of the pressure off of having one "great day" and you get to milk your birthday for a whole week. you should try it!
