I would like to start with a BIG hug and "THANK YOU!" for all the sweet words and birthday wishes. As I have said many times before, I feel blessed, and you are all a part of that big bundle of blessings God has graced me with. ( If only several of you could ride around on my shoulder all day, "pumping me up" with kind words and encouragement, day to day life would be a snap!)
I had a good birthday. I know this is going to sound crazy and make me seem a little "old," but my favorite gift of the day were these house shoes my hubby got for me. Crazy huh? He knew I had to throw my old ones away and with the colder air coming and wood floors, I needed a little something for the footsies. Let me tell you, they are the softest things...like walking on a cloud. OK, before all of you start wondering if that is all I got from my fam, it wasn't, just a favorite
My in-laws cooked me a birthday dinner last night. Sorry Sis, I didn't take pictures. Just trust me...IT WAS GOOD! One of my favorite meals...steak, baked potato, salad, bread and green beans. She even bought me a small birthday cake. Grandma, believe it or not, the "yellow" roses were pretty. Thanks!
I was surprised at work with a few little gifts and a big cheesecake. Cheesecake just happens to be my favorite. My mom use to make me one for my birthday dinners when I was younger. My dear sweet Nanny use to have one ready for me, about every time I would visit too. So the cheesecake was a nice gesture.
My daughter got the "pink eye" on my birthday. Happy Birthday to me, right?!!! You know what that meant? Momma got all new makeup for the day after her birthday, celebration. Praying nobody else in the family comes down with it. She had to stay home from school today, and was not happy. Imagine that! A kid who WANTS to go to school. She is working real hard on those grades and is so afraid of getting behind. Doctor said she can go back tomorrow, but of course she will have to wear the glasses for a few days.
Since I hinted about grades...
Let me just tell you, I'm one proud Mom! Report cards arrived...
Spelling = 99%
Language Arts = 97%
Reading = 90%
Mathematics = 91%
Social Studies = 94%
Science = 96%
Gymnastics (her physical education) = 95%
Accelerated English = 99%
Band = 97%
Math = 97%
Social Studies = 92%
Keyboarding = 100%
Woo Hoo! Mommy is definitely doing the happy dance today! Don't you just love it when your kids are doing well? And I am not a person who puts a lot of pressure on grades, "just as long as it is your BEST." I like their best!!!
Well, I could probably ramble on and on, but I will be quiet and let someone else take over for a while. Happy Tuesday Everyone!
