Hey Hey It’s My Birthday

It’s my birthday today, and also a PD day. I wasn’t sure if that was a good thing, or a bad thing, but so far, I’d say it’s leaning towards the plus side.

For starters, I didn’t have to make lunches, which is a huge, giant, golden egg of a gift in and of itself. Without the usual morning rush, the kids were able to toddle about in jammies for a few hours and everything felt relaxed and fun. So that was good.

Plus there were presents – pie related presents! I am a happy pie maker today.

So far the kids and I have been to the movies (Puss in Boots, nothing outstanding but at least it wasn’t actively offensive like the Smurfs – and in fact, upon reflection, I actually liked it even better than the Shrek movies which I find a little manic and too-too clever at times), then we got take out for lunch and had a picnic on the floor, which was good.

Plans for this afternoon: cake making, napping, mad Playmobil party. Tonight: WORLD TRIVIA NIGHT, best night of the year.

So overall – despite the tickle at the back of my throat which is DEFINITELY NOT the start of the cold that the Little Miss has – it’s been a good day. And it’s getting even better.

Turns out PD days and birthdays go rather nicely together.

  1. Have a fantastic World Trivia Night tonight, Lynn. I will be thinking of you guys. Are there costumes again this year? I don’t need to ask if there are scads of chips, candy and other similar-type brain food.

    Have a very merry birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday Lynn! It was very nice for them to plan World Trivia Night for your birthday! That means you will be AWESOME at everything. I’m thinking about that Cheers Jeopardy episode with Cliff. 😀 Have a great year!

  3. Happy birthday! What a great day! Take some Oil of Oregano – it seriously works to kill a cold if you take it when you have that nasty little tickle in your throat.

    Have fun at World Trivia Night!

    Happy (belated) birthday! I hear you about lunches. Sounds like you had a great day planned and I’m looking forward to hearing all about World Trivia Night. Sadly, I think I’ve lost my trivia chops.

    (Btw, thanks for the tip on Vinyl Tap — I’m listening to it right now — it’s kind of addictive.)
