Thank God it’s My Birthday.
I am guessing that since no one asked for my address that there won’t be a big influx of cards or presents today. I called the Post office, UPS and Fed Ex and told them to stand down and tell the extra people that they brought in to go home. Seriously I have been celebrating (telling everyone I know)since last Thursday so don’t feel bad if you didn’t get me anything.
Thursday we had our United Way kickoff dinner here at work. And it started out with a kick too. When the guy showed up at the caterers to pick up the food, the owner said; “That was today?” Oops no food. They scrambled and substituted and we had plenty to eat but it wasn’t the food we planned on. I had my heart set on smoked chicken but I had BBQ pork instead. It was still good. And I won a door prize. A gift certificate to Wally World. Whooo Hooooo. What a way to start my birthday weekend. Did I mention that today is my Birthday?
So Friday my youngest son and I went to play golf. It was one of those male bonding days plus I felt I needed a day off for my Birthday. We had a great time and both of us did well. By the time we got home, it was beginning to get hot so we all headed for the pool.
We had a great day at the Farmers Market on Saturday. I sold lots of wine and my oldest son sold lots of plants. He used some of the money to buy stuff for my Birthday meal on Sunday. That is all I asked for so he prepared it. We had seafood marinara with garlic bread and sautéed mushrooms. It was an awesome birthday meal for me. Oh the market; There weren’t too many strange sightings at the market. We did see “Dress guy” and “Flasher girl” Other than that nothing much to report.
After dinner on Sunday I just vegged by the pool. It was nice to just sit and relax. That is all I wanted to do on the day before my birthday.
Guess what? I think I came up with my million dollar idea. You know how I am always coming up with great ideas? Well this one I think is going to put me over the top. You know how almost everyone (except my family) has these Wii things? They have Wii golf, Wii bowling, Wii tennis etc. Well I have come up with something great. How about Wii video game. You can sit there with your Wii and pretend that you are playing a video game. I am sure with a great idea like this, someone is already working on it but remember you heard it here first.
So who knows what today is? Can anyone guess?
Have a great day,
