And yet here I am.
And, if you would have told me that a shift day might actually make for a wonderful birthday - two years ago, I would have rolled my eyes and made a snarky comment.
And yet, it did.
Friday night was a date night with my hubby - Five Guys and a a movie, with a Cinnabon to close the day.
My actual birthday was a shift day. He couldn't get off. So, it was to be life as usual.
After several leading questions about my schedule on my birthday, my FFW next door made an appointment for a pedicure at an amazing spa first thing in the morning. Being a FFW, she knows dang well that there is always an excuse NOT to make the appointment required by a gift certificate. I am horrible about it. I have broken my husband's heart because I can't find the time. But, I digress...
Anyway, the kids cleaned the house while I was at the spa AND decorated for me. It was beautiful. I still can't bring myself to take them down.
|HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I love you more than the sun. |
From my B boy....<3
Starbucks gave me a free venti hot cocoa, N's team won their game while the other three stooges played with their newly made friends on the playground, my dad took us out for pizza and my hubby stopped by at 10:30pm to make sure I didn't go to sleep without another happy birthday and a kiss. BUT...the sound of the air brakes and the sight of the big red box at 10:30 at night MIGHT have given my girl next door a minor heart attack. No worries, FFW have no issues calling FFs out for that, even when it is not their FF. She made it known...
I don't need gifts. We had cake the next day and yellow roses somehow appeared. It was probably the best birthday I have had in quite some time. The love that was showered upon me is worth more than anything that could be bought. It was a weekend of love and blessings.
38 is going to be a good year. I look forward to seeing what it will bring me.
