Today I turned 60 years old. It seems old when you say it, but doesn't feel old. Best thing about it is that in 2 years I can collect Social Security! vbg
Met my friend of 30 years for lunch at the Olive Garden today. She got a call from her 30 year old son when she got to the parking lot, so was a few minutes late getting to the table. She told him she was meeting me for lunch for my birthday and he asked how old I was. She told him "60" and he said, "Holy Crap"! And then immediately told her not to tell me he said that! Obviously, she told me right away! Can't wait to get even with him! vbg
Stephanie had cramps at 3:30 this morning, took a pill and they finally went away an hour later. She's been fine the rest of the day and goes to see both doctors in the morning. She called to wish me Happy Birthday this morning, and tried to talk AJ into getting on the phone to talk to Grandma. He said noooo, twice, then grabbed the phone and in a very loud voice said, "Happy Birthday"! Been just a day of laughs today! Got phone calls from both boys also.
Yesterday Bill and I went out and bought me a new watch (silly boy thought that big longarm quilting machine we bought in January should qualify as a birthday present, too!). Actually, it would have except I've spent $50-60 replacing the darn band on my old watch in the past 3 years, so decided it was more cost effective to get a different one -- the old one only had one style replacement band and it was worthless. Tonight we're going to dinner at my choice of places, which will either be Red Lobster or a local to Rockford -- Franchesco's, which is very good.
We also made it out to the cemetary yesterday with fresh flowers for mom. And in our errand running, stopped at the post office to renew our passports. They expired two years ago, and we may be going on a cruise in late fall, so might as well get it done now.
Anyway -- that's been my week so far!
I'm grateful I made it to 60 -- sure beats the alternative.
It's been fun laughing with friends and family today. Lots of teasing going on.
Dinner out -- no cooking! (But I'll sure have to get on the treadmill in the morning!).
