It's my birthday!


YEEE HAW!
It's my birthday! And I am doing a happy dance. I am off from school for 2 whole weeks - do I need to explain the sheer joy I feel in that simple thing along? My husband has planned a party for tonight - I think. I'm pretty certain. We're doing something. He won't tell me what it is. All of my friends have dropped off the face of the earth or are acting particularly odd. As long as it involves a martini, it's all good.
Then, after a night of wild behavior - which of course I will share with all of you. I have no shame - I am packing a suitcase for everyone in my family (because, apparently, only moms know how to pack suitcases), we're loadin' up the family vacation truckster and headin' off the the Wisconsin Dells. In November. A vacation destination for sunny midwestern summers. Lots of out door water parks and not much else. It's going to be very very quiet!
YEEE HAW!

Happy, happy birthday!! Hope you had a lovely party! And good luck with the knitting. I must confess, I bought books and read about knitting for a full year before I was able to finally knit and that was because a woman in a yarn store made me sit down and stay put until I got it. I had to go back to have her cast off and cast on for a second scarf. And then I only knit scarves for at least 9 months. Everybody got a scarf, whether they wanted one or not! People (non-knitters) kept asking me if I was ever going to knit anything besides scarves and I told them I liked scarves just fine. It was a different knitting store owner that got me to start branching out. My point? It can take awhile, especially if you're stubborn about asking for help, as I was/am, but it really is worth it. Enjoy the vaca!!

Thank you everyone for the great wishes. I'm supposed to be packing, but you know how that goes.
Daddyman took my Cosmic Bowling - fabulous old bowling alley, black lights, nachos and good beer. When we arrived, friends were waiting to greet us!
We laughed and laughed and laughed. I won the first game - I think that maybe they planned it that way. Although, I did bowl 124. I never broke 80 after that. So very much fun. And a great surprise.
Vacation:
40 degrees and quiet is still quiet. We've packed tons of projects. I love it the best because we all talk to each other. It's bliss.
I'll fill you all in again soon.
Thanks for the good wishes.

Happy birthday! Do share all the fun and wildness. Did you have a party?

I'm pretty sure it's not your b-day anymore, but happy b-day anyway! Have a great vacation, and drink a martini or something for me. I'm Mormon, so you might have to make up for many years of a martini-less life. You might want to eat something first. ;)

Hey there - I've tagged you for a meme for sharing 8 little or unknown things about yourself. Someone tagged me at www.angelawd.wordpress.com and I am passing along the joy. If you’re not interested, no problem but if you are interested, you just list your 8 things and then pass it along to 8 others. My post for this is up now. Take care!
