So yesterday was my birthday and I survived!! My birthday day actually started Sunday when my hubby surprised me with a large gathering at Macaroni Grill of friends and family. It was a HUGE surprise for me and lots of fun! Yesterday I woke up with birthday wishes from Ed and my kids. I had to make some errands after dropping Ed off and one stop was the bank. Michael, the regular bank drive up guy wasn't there, but I don't think he's there anymore, but I did recognize his trainee guy who helped me, and appears to be the regular drive up guy now. So I made my deposit and he sent me out the slip and said, "thanks so much Jean. And have a happy birthday". Surprised the life out of me! What a nice guy! Though I need to break him in about asking if I need any suckers as I had two unhappy sucker loving kids in the back.
Worked until 1:30 (Mondays are now my busiest days) and then had company for a bit, went and got Sam from school, got home, put the kids down for naps and then got a call from one of my cronies from highschool. What a great conversation for 45 minutes! We haven't talked in about a year and here she was wishing me a happy birthday! It was great catching up and encouraging eachother. Oh how I wish we lived closer!!
I realized that I neither had breakfast or lunch. And I was so busy that when I was sitting talking to company, Alina came up to me with a banana, so I gave it her to eat and then here she came with another one. I asked her if she wanted strawberries, she asked for waffles and cereal and it dawned on me. I totally forgot to feed her lunch!! Poor kid!! Talk about a neglective mother that your daughter would eat two bananas because she was so starving hungry!!
So at dinner I was scarfing down my salad and steak. I was so hungry!! Those little snickers I had eaten earlier didn't satisfy me! Then I ate too much. Oooooo my belly!! It was making all the groaning and moaning noises last night in bed that I couldn't even go to sleep.
One last stop after dinner to Meijer for diapers and the goods for our special v-day dinner tonight. Can't wait!! yay! :)
Home and everyone went to bed. Adding another year to my life has sure tired me out!!
