The Downhill Side to 70

Me and Ruth“After tonight, Mommy will be on the downhill side to 70.” That’s what M said to the girls last night at dinner time.

It’s true, today is my Birthday, and I am now 36.

It’s been a really nice day so far. Before I even woke up, the girls cleaned the school room, and their bedroom, and made cards for me… R even wrote my name and hers all by herself. M made a card for me too and also made me breakfast and had Paul Simon playing even though he can’t stand Paul Simon (now that’s sacrifice!).  And before I even wrote this post, my friend Elizabeth called me, and my friend Ursula sent me an e-card, and I got a card in the mail from my parents.

I am told that there will be cake tonight, but they all swear they couldn’t find anything good as far as any gifts for me. Even though I don’t believe them, it would still be okay because M said that he will do all of the dishes tonight.

So, now I am going to shut the computer off and enjoy the rest of the day. (o:
