Make a Wish

So, where have I been? Well, last night I fell asleep on the sofa while watching TV like old people do. And tonight, it was all about the candles. Lots of candles. Yes, today is my birthday. I am 56 years old. Because I have guests here, I'm going to keep this short.

It's been a great day. My co-workers took me out to lunch, and Marv made dinner tonight. We had ice cream cake, which impressed the little boys much more than Grandpa's spaghetti did. Are you surprised? My introverted oldest son brought me flowers, and my extroverted youngest son brought me a scratch-off lottery ticket and a bottle of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. All I can think when I look at/listen to that pair is that if I had just had one more kid, I might have had a normal one. LOL. Seriously, they're the best, and I'm so proud of both of them. The mail carrier was extremely kind to me today, too. Cards that made me laugh, smile, and a couple that made me cry. Some works of art. All from the heart. I am so blessed.

And with that, I'll sign off and get back to my company... More tomorrow night. A card, too!!

Oh Kathi! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! I wish I had known earlier! Well, I'll know NEXT YEAR and will help fill up your mailbox!

Your tin is cute and funny! LOVE it!

The thought of the third one being just right - you're beginning to sound like Goldilocks - seriously!

Hugs!

Kathi, I'm so glad to hear of your wonderful birthday!

Your commentary on your sons is priceless...my mom had 5 boys and not one of them is "normal" (at least in this sister's eyes)!

You definitely deserve all the special things that come your way!

Hugs!

Happy belated birthday Kathi. Like Sharli, I wish I would have known but I'll put it on my calendar for next year.

It sounds like your day was a good one and that the people around you showed their love.

Great nugget tin too! Have a terrific Friday.
