Happy B-Day to me!

Yes, it was a wonderful day!  Besides being my 38th birthday, it was a beautiful sunshiney day, warm but not too hot.  Awesome!  Nope.  I'm not ashamed of my physical age because (one of my friends only announced it to the entire FaceBook world) and I don't act it anyway.  So Pppppfth!

I was woke up at 8 am by my sister Laurie calling to sing Happy Birthday to me.  And since it is also her birthday....I had to join in singing for her.  LOL, we're not twins.  She's 13 years older than me!  Can you get a better present than .... ME ???? No, I don't think so!  LOL!!

We ~sniff~ went & got Angel registered for school today.  I'm not ready for her to be a freshman!!!  At least she will  still physically be at the junior high and not the high school yet.  Whew!  She took yearbook as one of her electives, so that's 1st hour - then World History, English 9, Physical Science, Geometry and French II.  I really hope she straightens up and doesn't screw off as badly as she has since.....kindergarten!!  I think we're drilled in into her melon that her options for after graduation include Macomb Community College (which she is OK with!) or being taken to the recruiter & choosing which branch of the military she wants to go in.  I am still holding out hope that she miraculously becomes a perfect student and gets a scholarship to Michigan State.  Hey - a mom can hope!

showing off the new schedule!

Let's see...the rest of my day included changing sheets on our bed (special thanks to my darling Randy for squishing a huge full mosquito on the wall, then smearing mosquito blood & guts onto the sheet).  Right in the middle.  GROSS!!! The pillows & blanket got hung outside.  The bathrooms cleaned & rugs washed.  He made a huge dent in cleaning out the garage.  Then we went to Cheeseburger in Paradise for dinner.  Man - I totally ignored the diet tonight!  I had a burger called "the Good Egg".  A burger with ham, a fried egg and mayo.  Sweet potato fries, 2 torched cherry pina coladas and a scoop of chocolate ice cream with sprinkles for my birthday dessert.  I'm just coming out of my food coma.

Minor rant about the family.  Not the family in my house this time.  Mom.  She called earlier today to sing to me - that's what we do - and she asked what our plans were today.  I said we were going out to dinner and she asked who was taking me - Randy?  Ummm, no.  My boyfriend!!  Who else would be taking me out??  Because I can never get a word in edgewise, she told me that Laurie was coming over tonight to go out to dinner.  That's nice.  I get the impression that they expected me to go, too - however no one ever said anything to me.  See, Laurie is single with no kids.  She's been there for Mom a lot since Dad passed away, which is great, fantastic!  However, I think they tend to forget that I have a family of my own...that I prefer to spend time with.  Linda may have no qualms about ditching Dave for the weekend, but I don't feel the same about Randy.  Anyway.

I still don't see the need for TVs everywhere in a restaurant.  
I don't care that much for Tiger's baseball.  
But if it was a hockey game......


  1. Oooh cheeseburger with a fried egg on top! Yumm! I had one of those the day I went wedding dress shopping...ironic now that I look back on it. I'm glad you had a good birthday and got to enjoy most of your day!

  2. Happy birthday! Don't worry about your daughter. She'll be great at school! And I agree about the TV thing...


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
