Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me...

Yes, internets, today is my birthday.  I'm turning 29...once again.  *Cough, cough*

Actually, I'm turning 41 today.  Which means I'm actually "into" my 40's and not just 40, which implies I'm on the cusp of my 40's wouldn't you agree?  I'm not happy about it in particular, but I must admit that it's been a pretty good day so far.

I woke up to find that my darling husband had cleaned my bathroom sink for me.  (This will sound like the height of laziness, but please remember that I've been sick for two weeks.)  A while back I dropped a blue eyeshadow into my sink and, of course, it broke into a million tiny little eyeshadow fragments.  I did my best in my weakened condition (don't I sound like a Jane Austen novel now?) to clean it up, but basically I ended up with blue streaks all over the sink.  So to wake up to a shiny clean sink was a treat.

Then Hubby had several cards for me.  I especially like it when he hides them for me to find in different places - it makes the day full of fun and anticipation.

At work, my office manager had made a birthday cake for me and had a card.  They were very sweet surprises given that I'm so new here.  As the day went on, I was surprised with a drop-dead gorgeous bouquet of roses and lilies, plus a gift certificate to Chili's that would pay for our whole family to go out to eat!  Ok, those last two things were actually for Secretaries (or Administrative Asst. for the PC among us) Day, but it was a nice touch on my birthday!!

Plus my Facebook is overwhelmed with messages and well wishes.  It's nice to hear from so many people from all phases of my life.

The day is only half over and yet my birthday has so far been a million times better than it was last year when I was brand new into a country and life that was totally foreign to me.  Thanks be to God for His care over every little detail!!

Lori, I never got a receipt on the e-card I sent you (a few days early, even, to account for the time change, etc.). I hope you didn't think I forgot. I hope you had a great day and many more!!!
