My Birthday!

Today is my birthday.   I LOVE my birthdays!!  So, this year, my gift is letting my oldest two kids sleep over a friends' house and then go boating with them all day. (I don't think I'll be seeing them until late tonight.)  Yesterday I painted the kitchen for 13 hours (with 9 kids underfoot in the house). Which means today, I have found new muscles that I forgot I had! haha. But the color is awesome. I can't believe I left it warm white (that Ken enjoys) for so long. So today, I will be putting the second coat on it.

Biking home from my daily 2 mile walk/2 mile bike regimine, I realized that I am much more healthier than I was when I was 29. Yeah me! 

I told E, the only one home, that we'd go shopping for my bday gifts today. He could take my credit card and buy what ever he wanted for me. Which might mean that I am getting a pet turtle. haha.

Another great gift this year...I completely surprised Michelle/mybearybest with a box for her "unbirthday!" haha. But of course, she generously gifted me with THIS set of cards and the matching Paper Makeup set. Which I had really wanted but wouldn't buy for myself.  Thanks a bunch, Michelle, for the surpises! 

Well, it's just past 10 am...I'm still in work out wear after showing off my kitchen to my neighbor and interior decorator friend who thinks it is awesome too!  (We might be heading for Ikea for fixtures on Thursday.)  My #3 is down the street with those boys who spent the day here.

So, I have at least 12 more hours to celebrate me and everyone else I love!  Happy Birthday to me...and Happy UnBirthday to YOU!
