I wanna wish you a happy birthday.....
...happy birthday to ME, today!
Yes, another year older and another year wiser. And like a fine wine, I wonder, do I keep getting better with age? Hmmm...discuss amongst yourselves. And as I remember my parents saying when my Mom turned 36, I'm on the "backside of 30". Oye. The slide to 40 is only too close.
CJ and I spent the weekend van shopping (AHHH yikes! A Mini-van!!), errand running and he so graciously let me hit the gym both days. We grilled out Saturday night with his brother/our SIL and the kids, and caught up on shows together on the couch without passing out!
Sunday, we awoke to a vomit episode with Keifer- all over daddy's chest- but luckily it was short lived. I think it might've been the coughing she did all. night.long and it was phlegm-related but she got over it. She helped daddy clean out our car so we can see what we'll get for a trade in on it, and hit the grocery store with me as well. K2 has had a runny nose, but is a chatter machine and is pulling herself to a stand anywhere and everywhere she can! She is so funny! She certainly has been keeping us on our toes!
I also got to hit the gym last night, and then our neighbors came over for a short lived play session- although Keifer was so tired from NO NAP all weekend (why, me, why???) that she was a grouch to her friend Hayden. Luckily she passed out cold on the couch while I was putting K2 to bed last night, and mama had some uninterrupted "catch up" time with the DVR and some internet surfing (but alas, no blogging- that would require lifting my fingers and typing! LOL).
I awoke this AM to a card and a hug from my K1; she also told me that I could try on her Princess Birthday crown, but she didn't think it would fit me, because my head is "too big". LOL. I got to work, but......turned around. A gas line had broke in the back of the Elementary school I work in. The lawn care mower hit the cap, it popped off, and the fire engines and city workers were there and the entire school had to evacuate. I got there just in time to turn around and join THE ENTIRE school at the local community center's park, which is about a mile away. Wow. What an AM. We were all allowed back to school around 10:30 or so, to our dismay, and to the smell of sweet gas. Headache. However, thank God nobody was hurt and my afternoon class proceeded as usual and I got some awesome cards and gifts from my coworkers.
Oh, and my sweet CJ bought me an awesome new pair of pricey running shoes and a pair of running socks (for $10! WHA?? $10 for socks? LOL). Ahhh, now I"m off to home to try and choose what dinner I want before I get to hit the gym ALONE and enjoy some mommy time alone and work out.
