Disclaimer: I will not be sipping Bacardi! A nice dry red wine perhaps, but demon rum will never pass these ruby-red lips!
There were upteen phone and Facebook messages for me yesterday. There was promises of treats and packages in the mail from children who couldn't be with me. And this morning on my desk at my regular 4-day-a-week job there was an envelope with $40 in it and a note from my boss to "treat myself"! As well, we have a weekend city-day-trip coming up with a visit to a Korean restaurant and my favorite thrift store. Wow! What a birthday!
I'm just going to use the excuse that not only do YOU move slower as you age, festivities must be d-r-a-w-n o-u-t so as not to tire us out too much and/or confuse us, right?.
