Today is my birthday

On the plus side so far:
Bobby made me a lovely breakfast of potatoes, English muffins, strawberries and coffee.
The girls made pretty/funny cards.
My friends sent amazingly touching e-mails.
I have an interview with Viva Voce at noon.
I am having lunch with JDM later, followed by an indulgent appointment at Kalos salon courtesy of my mom. (Just a wee bit of pampering.)
My dear friend LN has something planned for this evening. A “surprise” party of sorts.

On the con side:
My cell phone is inexplicably dead.
Nick’s blood sugar has been running high. He called from school feeling ill. (Bobby went to pick him up.)
I forgot to renew my driver license.

Overall, a great start to the day with only manageable challenges. I trust the day will unfold in a most positive manner.

(Some people might think celebrating a birthday at 38 is silly, but I’m always happy to have an excuse for extra love and celebration!)

    Celebrating a birthday at any age (and you know that no one believes this *38* business… you’re younger than that) is never ridiculous. Everyone’s gotta have their moment in the spotlight. Next year, you should totally try an entire week. It’s more fun than you can imagine. :-D

    Here’s to another year of being confused with Jen Savage!

    I had no idea. Happy Birthday +1

  5. Happy Birthday, Jennifer. And many more.

  6. Thank you! It was a lovely, fun-filled day! Mimosas, lasagna, great conversation. Even a bit of “Saturday night” as some would say. Everything a girl could want.

    Hey, today is my birthday. It’s my 47th one.
    Another Scorpio. Scorpio bloggers rule!

    Happy Belate Birthday.

  8. Happy belated, boymostlikely2 and Ekovox! Next year, we should have a Scorpio party – at least a virtual one. But with real drinks. (Boy, maybe you can convince your Xanax-imbibing friends to make us some Limonella [sp?].)
