This is what I woke up to today. I'm just going to say it....one of the things I am most proud of my girls (and there are many) is that they have a sense of humor. A lot of people may think this isn't all that funny....more creepy than funny. Oh, but it fits right in there with my odd humor. I nearly woke the house up with my howling laughter.
H stayed up late last night making muffins for my birthday and left this sitting on top of the container. My girls always used to ask me what I wanted for my birthday and I would always tell them to make me something....to draw me a picture. One of them finally listened :)
The reason H made this- ahem- lovely birthday card is because not to long ago we sat down and watched Psycho. She had never seen it and it had been years since I had. Now, Psycho has a special place in my heart....WHAT? Um huh, a special place. When I was in 4th grade my friend has a sleep over with about 6 of us girls. For some reason--it was the 70's --her mom thought it would be a good idea to let us watch this movie. We screamed and laughed and all had to sleep with one of her stuffed animals. Would I let my 4th grader watch this movie...no. But then again when all my girls were that young they wouldn't watch ANY kind of scary movie. H is finally getting to where she will venture out and watch scary stuff. She is trying to gear herself up to watch Steven Kings IT. Geez, louise, that one scared the pants off me. That is until it got to the end and it was nothing but a giant alien bug. To this day I hate clowns and gutters.
S ? Nope, S hasn't ventured out into the scary move realm. She'll do the sci fi kind of scary but that's about it.
The big 5.O.
It sounds so weird. Growing up I never really imagined myself much older than my 20's.
It's not really bothering me. I don't feel like I'm 50...except the wear and tear on the body. Mentally, I am still in my 20's. Some would say teens and others would still say younger :)
Today I am going to keep it simple. C went into town to pick something up for me--even after already buying me a present the other day. You've got to understand. C and I have never really given each other presents. So when he gets me something, it really means a lot to me. I think he might be picking up a birthday cake for me. Oh, fingers crossed. If it's from where I think(hope) its from, it will be a GOOD one. And he will be picking up some shrimp to boil later. What fun...a good cake and some boiled shrimp--obviously not too close together.
Hmmm, maybe I'll get the family together and make them all watch a movie with me. Or play a board game. Or make them play Farkle--a dice game that no one will ever play with me ( I usually beat C so that's why he doesn't like to play).
I know that I am going to have a great day so my birthday wish is for all of you to have a blessed day today as well!
