Birthdays

Yesterday was my birthday, and it ended up being a really good day. Actually, I had a really good weekend. My Mom and Stepdad came into town, and Friday we went to the fair. Saturday was spent running around at the kids' events, but we managed to have dinner at Cheesecake Factory. We also got Audrey's bed ordered (thanks Mom and Ed!) and it will be delivered on Thursday.

Yesterday morning, I taught Sunday School, then met the best neighbors/girlfriends that a girl could have for brunch for my birthday. Not only did they take me out for brunch, but I got a giftcard for a spa and a cute "Girl's Night Out" money jar. Back home I went to help Ray switch the girls' rooms. In the middle of that, another friend/former teacher of Audrey's stopped by with a cookie cake and balloons for me.

So another year down, another year started. Thirty-three is such a forgettable number that this birthday didn't seem like much to me. But with my good friends and family, I had a really good birthday this year.

And I did talk to my twin brother yesterday for our birthday. It sounded like he had a pretty good birthday as well.

And now this morning I get to take Audrey to be allergy tested. Good fun for me.

Glad you had a great birthday!!

I have had both of the boys allergy tested. No fun. I have to take them back in about 6 months. Hope it goes well for you.

Happy belated birthday! Allergy tests are no fun for anyone but hopefully you can get some answers! It was the only thing that helped me when I thought I'd be stuffed up and sick forever. Now I'm on the right meds and get injections weekly and hope to be med-free one day!
