"Its OK"

-That I officially kicked off my birthday week at 5:00 yesterday. I get to use this glass only once a year, so I washed off the dust and will be using it ALL week. Don't think I wont be reminding my husband every chance I get that it is in fact my birthday week.

-That I am a serious cleaning machine. I worked for 7 hours straight yesterday. I am going to reward myself with something today. I just don't know with what yet.

-That my daughter sent me this text at work Monday and I almost fell off of my chair. All of these years of bringing her with me to the nail salon have finally paid off. She is a good kid like that.

-That the son I never had, sent me this text after taking my daughter to the shooting range.

- That my husband actually ended up folding a load of laundry this week. He gets confused with who owns what clothes. He was folding a pair of my daughters shorts and asked me if they were the babies (he thought they got left here).  I am not exaggerating when I tell you how short/small my daughters clothes are. She really hates wearing conservative work clothes.
"The babies" shorts
She considers these her "mom jeans" shorts. See how ridiculously long they are ? cough, cough. If I had her body and the knowledge I have now,  I would wear a bikini every day, even in the winter.

-That I really had the best experience with a repair man ever yesterday. A father and son team came to fix my TV yesterday. He was an older Italian man. He was the sweetest, most personable repair man I have ever had in my house. I could have listened to his Italian accent all day. Anybody in the MA area that needs a TV/stereo repair man, I have the man for you. He also gave me a few recipes I will be trying out.

-That as soon as my husband came home from work,  instead of admiring all of the hard work I did all day, he had to make sure his surround sound etc. were all in working order from the TV repair men. I paid him back for his oversight by cleaning the sheets (for those of you who read my blog, you know that his only job inside of the house is to make the bed after the sheets are washed) I can hear him up there swearing now. Its good to be the queen.

-That I am actually hoping for rain either Saturday or Sunday. My husband said if it rains we are going to the outlets. It is my birthday week. He wont be able to say no to anything. We were going to go to Maine but he told me we cant because they don't have a Black/White store (my favorite), that means he wants to shop for me. I don't have a problem with that.

-That while carrying my coffee into work on Monday, the whole bottom of the coffee cup broke apart and I had to drop it. That meant no coffee until 11:00 when one of the girls were due to come in. My husband offered to bring me a coffee but I didn't want to seem like a crybaby so I said I could live without coffee until 11:00.  It was hard but I managed. All of the girls that called in to check their schedules offered to bring me coffee that day for some reason. Maybe I had an edge in my voice from lack of coffee? They are good to me.
-That I only walked three times this week. All of the cleaning I did has to count for exercise right?
-That I deleted all of my blog buttons by accident. I think I permanently deleted my blog button as well. I am dreading telling my daughter she needs to fix it. She is going to tell me I'm old. I just don't have the patience to learn about these things the way some of you youngsters do.

-That I have only done my hair once this week. The rest of the week I just wash and go or leave conditioner in it. My hair is as dry as cotton candy right now. If someone lights a match, it may go up in flames. I am blaming hormones. Just another perk of getting oldER.

Happy Thursday!
