So my intention was to get up this morning, quickly finish my 'birthday' LO about me and have a leisurely morning during which I added this blog post and relaxed a bit.
Well, I'm not entirely sure of what happened, but I can tell you that I did NOT get anywhere close to quickly finishing that LO and that there was precious little leisure.
However, I did finish the LO and I am making this post before the very end of my actual birthday so I guess that counts for something right.
Truly, it was a wonderful day. For the first time in years my kids remembered it was my birthday......ALL OF THEM! Two of them don't even live here anymore and they still remembered.
My youngest left me the sweetest little notes all over the house and even a happy birthday sign tacked up outside my bedroom. I can’t tell you how much it warmed my heart for her to have done that. And she has been nice to me and to the whole household for 2 WHOLE weeks! That has been the best birthday present ever.
I got Facebook birthday wishes from something nearing 50 people (which has never happened before….did I get nicer this year or something???) All in all, I think I can safely say that this has been the best birthday that I have had in a LONG time.
So if you were part of that, I would like to say a very very big THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart. You really made me feel like a million bux!
And here is the LO I was so desperately trying to finish. I made it with the Mary Ellen kit which is still available over at Noel Mignon, but there are only a few left so you better grab it while you can!
