Today is my birthday!

Monday, May 09, 2011

Today was the first day in years that I was able to celebrate my birthday the way that I wanted. Usually I have to work or be somewhere all day.
So I did my yoga, walked the dog, volunteered at school (which I enjoy), I went shopping and bought myself a small present, ate my favorite cereal for breakfast, ate a healthy lunch with a piece of birthday cake, visited my husband, and now I am getting ready to go out for dinner with the family. The only thing I HAVE to do today is stop at a Scout Camp Meeting in the city for two hours tonight, which is an hour away from my house. That is why we are going there as a family. We might as well have some family time together before "have to do" stuff!

I had a lovely mother's day yesterday. I mean, I could blog about the drain clogging and the adult kids not being able to visit because of work etc. But the optimist in me ignores all that. I felt much love from all the phone calls, and all the family time yesterday! And everyone pitched in to "clean" the house. We will ignore the kids bedrooms as well. I don't have to live in those rooms (laughing).

My lil sis wrote me a lovely mother's day card, and my 9 year wrote me that one of the 10 reasons that he l loves me is that I have good table manners.

Gotta love those kids!

  Have a great birthday and keep up the great positive attitude. There are many things to be grateful if we take the time to reflect on them rather than the things that aren't going as we would like.
