I have an awesome husband and he has a very talented cousin. After crying my eyes out after seeing it, I went to school, took Abby to McDonalds to play on the toys while we waited for Brandon to finish class, and then went to Kneaders for breakfast. While Abby took a nap I ordered almost all of our family Christmas presents, then Brandon and I went to the movies and saw Secretariat...Loved it! Oh and I bought a new coat at Target...I needed a new one (not really but I am addicted to buying coats!). It was a great day and I am now glad to be going to bed!
This was the first year where I have honestly not wanted a ton of attention. Not that for all my other birthdays I wanted everything to be about me, but I wanted my birthday to be recognized. This year, I kind of dreaded it. I am so grateful for everyone who thought of me and either wrote to me or called me, but I realized this year that I have been selfish in the past. I have an incredibly thoughtful husband and the best friends and family anyone could ask for. Those are the best thing anyone could be given.
