Celebrate!

Today is my birthday and I'm 40 years old. I got a wonderful, sentimental card from my parents and a fab gift certificate to KnitPicks! http://www.knitpicks.com). Do I have the best parents in the world or what? Big B. made it a "Buffday" with lots of BtVS stuff...1st season on DVD, some books and a few comics from the series. I may be 40, but I still love Buffy! Tonight, our little family is going out for dinner, with Miss Boogie!

The best gift of all, though, is seeing 40. I have a wonderful little family, a nice new job, and I don't think I've been more satisfied with myself in my entire life. Everyone I know who's over 40 says it just gets better! I totally believe that! I can't wait to see what the next 40 years holds!

Okay, knitting. Still plugging away on Boogie's dress. My secret pal has already hit me with a wonderful, thoughtful gift: self-striping yarn, (which I've never used and can't wait to try), and a set of little teapot salt & pepper shakers from Occupied Japan! Secret Pal, you rock! My plan is to have my person's stuff in the mail by next Thursday. I think my pal will be my role model for organization! This girl's on top of it!

I'm going to indulge in a little birthday niceness that I like to call, the nap! Big B took the day off to be with me and he and Boogie are all snuggled in and snoozing. Think I'll join them!

Peace, ya'll!
