No, not that...you dirty minded folks.
I'm talking about my birthday.
Let's review the day....
My DH & DS were to asleep when I left the house to remember to say anything. My DH called mid morning and I told him it was OK because I know they aren't morning people. My DS called when he got home from school and was "reminded" about what they had forgotten to say before I left the house. My DD called me first thing and my niece Jenna called bright and early. My sister posted a greeting on her Blog with a HORRIBLE picture of me. Arg..maybe I really am 50! Through out the day I got emails and on line greetings from a lot of people. THANKS!!!!
The cake pictured yesterday was from the "Surprise Party" my co-workers threw for me yesterday afternoon. I was begining to think they were going to ignore me..well except for the verbal "Birthday wishes". No decorations at my desk when I came in. No decorations when I got back from lunch. HMMMMM. Finally, mid afternoon my boss "Called a meeting" and the conference room was decorated with Over the Hill stuff, what stuff cost 50 years ago, Music popular in 1958...Pizza and the BIG ole cake (plus a Boston Cream Pie for me to take home!!) YUM. They gave me a nice card With "stuffings" as my DH calls it...plus a 50 cent piece.
THANK YOU to my BFF Carol and the rest of the gang at work that "listened to me" when I said I wanted to be spoiled on my big day. Yes, I'm worse than a kid. I WANT to be fussed over...you all did a GREAT JOB.
My fabulous Step-Son called me while I was on the way home. I got a cute handmade card from the Boy with a "free car wash coupon" inside. Talked to my MIL before we went out and then my DH and I went out to dinner after dropping the boy off at Karate. We had a yummy dinner and at the end the waiters all sang to me in Italian..or at least they said it was Happy Birthday in italian????
I have left over cake and dinner for tonight so the celebration continues.
Thanks to everyone that sent birthday greetings. They meant alot.
