Happy Birthday to Me

Well the day has finally arrived.  I turn 47 years old today.  My phone will probably end up on a charger at work with all the birthday posts from friends on Facebook.  It feels good to know people care enough to take a few minutes and think good things for me.

Mom and I did lunch yesterday.  Well more like brunch because it was breakfast for both of us and it was lunch type food.  She got me a weed whacker for my birthday.  I am very excited because I have wanted one for a while but not been able to get one.  It runs on a rechargeable battery.  Chris put it together and I had the battery on the charger shortly after I got home.  I used it twice last night to get things trimmed in the front and backyard.

I felt good going to bed because the kids and I spent most of our evening outside.  We played and just generally hung out.  Our awesome neighbors came over with treats for the kids.  I think the big ones are made from molasses.  I figured they can have them today after I get home.  I need to run to get tabs for both the bike and car after work as well as stop at the bank to cash a check.  I hope to be home before Chris leaves for work.  Then I will open my present from him.

Yesterday was a productive day despite it’s inauspicious beginnings.  Laundry got washed and put away, dishes switched out in the dishwasher, sheets and blankets got washed, yard work done….  I know there was more but you get the idea.  I showered before bed to get the grass and pollen off.  That was a good idea because I felt pretty good and got some decent sleep.

I’m not sure what the day holds but it is getting time to face the world.  I hope everyone has a great day!
