Yesterday was my 56th birthday. We didn’t do anything big, but it was a good day. My husband took the day off so he could give ME a day off. We slept in (until nearly 10:00!), and then he dealt with the kids all day. Monday is always one of my laundry days, so he sorted the laundry and kept up with doing it. And there was a LOT of laundry this time, as my older kids had just gotten back from winter camp with the church youth group, and the younger two had gone on an overnight with friends.
I asked that my whole family watch my choice of movie with me, and I chose “Calamity Jane”. Then we watched “Star Trek Into The Darkness”. I received hand-made cards from “Mr. Loquacious” and “The Puzzler”, and my husband had gone to my favorite local scrapbook store to buy me some things that were on my wish list. 🙂
We had take-out from a favorite pizza place, and then before the kids went to bed, we watched the season finales of “Once Upon A Time” and “Once Upon A Time In Wonderland, which we had recorded on the DVR.
It was a good, lazy day, calm, no dealing with bickering children, etc. Best birthday I’ve had in some time! 🙂
Thank you, Mike! 🙂
