It's My Birthday


We survived the snow storm yesterday. The power was out most of the day, but came back on at 9 o'clock last night. I thought I'd get the day off for my birthday - but the snow stopped and the power came back on and school was not cancelled - bummer! The roads were still pretty horrible and I think school SHOULD have been cancelled!!! I guess a lot of parents thought so too, since we only had 8 kids in our class today.
Having a birthday a week before Christmas pretty much sucks! But I'm at an age where it really doesn't matter anymore - just grateful for one more birthday LOL. My DH gave me a big basket full of Bath & Body products, which is really luxury, since he is usually much more practical than that, (think kitchen appliance) and my Daughter gave me a yummy terry cloth robe - so soft and comfy. My sister gave me the 2008 Knitting Pattern a Day calendar - can't wait to browse through that, and my other sister gave me a beautiful leather bag. But best of all, my DH is cooking dinner - some sort of pork flambe dish, Latkes (potato pancakes), and roasted asparagus - he even has the dining room table set with candles!
So...Happy Birthday to Me!

Your place looks like ours--andy they closed our schools. I got to drive to work in that mess Sunday--I am a nurse. Luckily I live close--five minute drive took 15 both ways--glad I live close. Happy BD to you..I understand about the birthdays--just grateful to celebrate another one every year now.

Happy Birthday! Sorry you didn't get the day off, but seems like you had a nice day regardless. Having a B-day 2 weeks after Christmas myself, I know how you feel. I got (and still sometimes do) get "combined" gifts. POUT! LOL
