I had a birthday Tuesday.
In reality it becomes birthday week.
I think everyone should have a birthday week.
The tough part is,
just as I am finally getting used to admitting I am one age,
I have another b-day and I have to nudge that number up by one.
At least this one wasn't one of those biggie decade birthdays.
Thanks to Facebook I felt very busy, popular and important.
Oh, that happened to you too???
I get it.
Seriously I probably never would have heard from 3/4 of the people that sent me party wishes if it weren't for Facebook.
I was kind of feeling like a big deal for about five minutes
but when I got a message from somebody that has become my "friend" by some sort of identity mix up, somebody I really don't know and she doesn't know me,
I was forced to realize that just about everybody has the Facebook Birthday Calendar and I'm really not as big of a whoop as I first imagined. :-)
That aside, my family and close friends outdid themselves.
My hubby did this
The best part is he really does forget how old I am.
Don't you love the color of that robe though?
My daughter did THIS and made me laugh out loud and get a little misty all at the same time.
There is nothing like a daughter.
My mom did not only this
but also this
So much fun.
The party continued the next day.
Only the best and closest of friends would give you one of these for your birthday...
a fan for hot flashes!
The best part is the party continues for a couple more days.
I think I look right at home with a crown don't you?
I get to keep it until July 17th ...
when the birthday group meets again.
Thank you everybody and love you all.
