I don't know but I've been told, someone here is getting old

I don't know but I've been told,
Someone here is getting old.

To you
To you.


Yesterday was my birthday. We celebrated by inviting a few friends and their kids over for a cookout. It was originally supposed to be a surprise, one Husband has apparently been planning for a month. So earlier this week when I mentioned he was home and we hadn't seen our friends in awhile, and he laughed at me, I knew something was up. He spilled the beans, but no worries. The day dawned nice freaking hot and humid. It was day 2 of a heatwave to hit New England. Can I say that this ALWAYS happens (can anyone remember the baptism of '05? Water balloons and super soaker's). But we made the food and proceeded to celebrate anyway. We sat up chairs in the shade and turned the sprinklers on for the kids. All in all, it was a great day. It was nice and relaxing for me (husband however, was stuck playing cook, even though I tried to help a few times). Flowers (lots of flowers, seeds, cut and uncut), gift certificates, a bird feeder, new sandals (because I busted one pair last week - how convenient and another pair is almost gone), a custom bookmark, a set of postcards and a camcorder! rounded out my gifts. Even the thunderstorm that rolled through (with a nice cooling rain) didn't disrupt the party. I now have alot of plants to get planted, but it's FREAKING HOT, so maybe tonight when it cools down.

I'll leave you with a few quotes from yesterday.


"Mom, why did you invite OUR friends to your party?"
"It's all wet over here" (right where the sprinkler was)
"How old are you again? 26? 27?"
(after the above mentioned song was sung by a chorus of first graders)
"someone may be getting old here, but it's not her"
"If I don't do the dishes tonight, tomorrow won't be your birthday, so that means I'm off the hook, right?"

Thanks to everyone who came to my cookout, called or emailed me birthday wishes yesterday!

Happy Pachi - had I known it was your birthday, I might have.. er.. no, I would have melted going outside yesterday. Sorry we missed it - but when we get back from Florida, lets work on getting together.
