HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME.... uhm yeah. It's another year. :)
It's been a gentle day - nothing all that glamorous or anything. As a matter of fact, my "big event" for the day has been going to the DMV to get my driver's license renewed. I looked fabulous - this DL photo should be great! Fingers crossed - we shall see in 30 days!
I also decided this renewal period to go ahead with the decision to become an organ donor - no reason not to, really. I know people who think that if you do this there is a risk that EMT folks and doctors won't fight to save your life -- I don't think that's true. I've not confirmed it, but I just can't see that as being real.
So this year's BIRTHDAY celebration is low key... this year doesn't seem to be as "bells -n- whistles" as previous years. I've been in a bit of a funk lately and it seems to have spilled over into what I normally try to do to celebrate my personal new year. I'm not trippin' about turning another year older... that's never been an issue. It just doesn't feel like a particularly special day. My friends and family have been spectacular about showering me with positive birthday blessings - and that is the best part of this so far!
I do have plans to go out tomorrow and play in my local community - breakfast and then off to see the movie, Les Miserables. So my celebrations are slowly being spread out over a few weeks... maybe even over about a month once I get to schedule outings with all of my friends.
The other fun element this year is that my birthday falls the day just before the first playoff game for the Denver Broncos... so I am getting a little "colored up" for that tomorrow... I'll be wearing my "united in orange" gear - scarf/hat and my gorgeous new orange tote purse from BCBGeneration.
So, to all those who've sent me birthday wishes - THANK YOU... here's to another trip around the bright beautiful sun!
