Today is my birthday. I actually turned a year younger today. In the days leading up to my birthday I somehow got it in my head that I was turning 37. This morning Logan asked me how old I was today. "37," I replied without hesitation. Camden happily piped in with, "No, Mom, Dad's 37. You're 36 today. Here's a calculator; do the math!"(he knows his Mom so well with the calculator bit!) So today I turned a year younger. I think I may have unlocked the key to the fountain of youth!

Here're some highlights of the day:

  • waking up at 7:38 am because the boys had been mouse-quiet all morning
  • loads of happy birthday hugs and kisses from the kiddos (I love how my birthday is more exciting for them than me)
  • receiving these precious cards and gifts from the boys (you know I will be saving those coupons for the most desperate of times!)
  • finding the playroom totally cleaned up courtesy of the boys
  • spending some time sitting on the couch in P's office crocheting while the snow fell outside
  • lots of birthday greetings on Facebook
  • phonecalls from family and friends
  • a 2-hour phone call with my brother on some philosophies of life
  • yummy calzone for dinner
  • this birthday cake
  • watching The Time Traveler's Wife with P (the book was so much better, of course, but watching the movie made me fall deeper in love with the book)

Yeah, it was a darn good day. Full of all the things that matter most: love of family and friends, a bit of creative time, and a clean playroom that I didn't have to scream my head off to get!!
