The Big 4-0 Birthday

My day didn't start off all that great. I had a difficult time falling asleep last night. Around midnight, I decided to take a Tylenol PM. Big mistake. I woke up feeling crappy and groggy and still very tired. So, I called in to work and took the day off. I went back to sleep for several more hours. Once I woke up, I headed out to shovel yet MORE snow. Have I said: I am so ready for spring!? I received a call from T wishing me a happy birthday. I was surprised he remembered. I also received birthday wishes from M (the one who's from the suburbs of Chicago). My parents had me over for a birthday dinner. It was good. My brother called and left me a voicemail... singing happy birthday to me. LOL, at least it sounded like him so I hope it was. I didn’t recognize the number he was calling from. Yesterday, my sister took me out to lunch for my birthday. I did managed to get some stitching in for a RR I'm participating in (first one ever so I hope it works out). Overall it was a nice day, but uneventful for a milestone birthday. That’s OK, though, since I don’t look or feel like I’m 40.

Sounds like a pretty good birthday to me! Congrats on making it to another one :) I am just incredibly tickled that you are about 11 months older than me!
