haha! It's not really. I am actually at work all day. And to further the indignity, it is my late day! I will be toiling away until 9:00 tonight. Still, as you know it is Valentine's Day. And as anyone knows who pays attention to my not at all subtle hints, it is also my birthday today. Even at my age (49 today, thank you very much) I still get kind of excited on "my" day. And all I had to do was emerge from the womb.
On Sunday, we had our Jan/Feb birthdays family brunch. I was so happy to receive a bit of cash from my parents. They know what I need :)
Today when I picked Handsome Lad up for school he gave me his gift, and also one from his dad. Handsome Lad got me a very lovely watch. He's a man who still appreciates a nice time piece and I appreciate that! WTG, who for years bought anything I ever wore, got me a pair of pants, a tee shirt, and some boots. He's one of the few people I know who can confidently buy clothes for other people.
A couple of days ago, Girlie Girl mentioned that she may make dinner for me tonight. That would be very nice...we'll see...she's a busy girl. haha! If she doesn't make a meal, I am fairly certain I will at least have a delicious cake prepared by DR. He has been cooking for me for the past week, since he's been back, and I can't tell you what a treat it is. As I've said many times, I don't particularly like cooking...but eating...yeah, I'm into that. And I know it is all sappy and stuff, but for reals, having DR with me is like the best present ever.
My little bear friend just came by my desk to give me this -
So, so far, in spite of being at work, I am having a fabulous birthday / Valentine's day! And I know it is kind of silly, but I get SUCH a kick out of FB wall wishes, stuff on twitter, and in the blog world (thank you Tara!) I feel so loved!
Happy Valentine's Day to all of you! Don't think of it as an awful greeting card holiday. Think of it as: 1) Another day to tell the people you love that you love them. 2) My birthday ;-)
