I guess this is pretty self-indulgent, but hey — that’s what this whole entire blog is, right?
I’m not doing anything I don’t want to do today. I may sew, I may not. I do have to make part of our lunch (the potatoes), but I think Mark is going to cover everything else. And I think he said I have to pop the popcorn for tonight’s popcorn night. Beyond that, though: I’m taking the day off. What a relief!
I spent yesterday in Wisconsin helping a friend/customer with her quilting machine. Thankfully it went well — as much as I like her, I didn’t want to have to end up spending my birthday with her…
On the way home, I stopped at a quilt shop. I’m not sure what’s wrong with me, but I couldn’t find a single thing in the entire shop that I needed to buy.
And then I stopped at Kohl’s and looked at purses and wallets, but again, couldn’t find anything I liked. Good thing, too, as I got a surprise today, but I’m not saying anymore until….well, you’ll just have to wait, OK?
I guess that’s all for now. I’m sorry about yet another picture-less post — maybe I’ll blog again later and do it with pictures….
p.s. I got a couple of birthday cards yesterday. The one from my sister-in-law made me laugh. On the outside it says “Happy Birthday Sister-in-law! Despite our great relationship, you and I share a minor problem….” And on the inside it says “But don’t worry — we’ve put up with him for this long, so I uess we can tolerate him for the duration.”
Poor Mark. She disses him with cruel birthday cards on *his* birthday, and now she has started to diss him on MY birthday, too!
p.p.s. In case you are wondering, I’m 35 today. I guess this means that after today I’m officially closer to 40 than I am to 30. Weird. It doesn’t bother me, but it is definitely weird….
