Happy Birthday To Me
I had a terrific birthday and enjoyed my 3 days off work. The best part about birthdays is doing what ever in the heck you want to do and no one can argue with you because well, let's face it, It's Your Birthday! My daughters and their spouses had dinner with Ron and I Saturday night. I got a $50.00 gift certificate to Lowe's...my favorite DIY store where I immediately went to purchase plants for my window boxes. There were only a few be-dragled plants left and I don't know if they will survive the 101 degree weather we are having but what the heck....I'll give it a shot. My brother called to wish me a happy birthday and to remind me that now I'm only 1 year younger than him. I said....at least I'm still younger and always will be! I was reminded several times over the weekend that I'm now in my last year of my fifties. Then there was the great mathematical debate about when the year actually starts or something like that. How the year 2000 wasn't really the millinium but that's about where I stopped listening. I'm just happy to be here and don't really care about the number of years I've inhabited the earth as long as I just keep on inhabiting!
