I like even numbered birthdays. I can always be double some really small number and today’s is especially happy cause it’s my double-sixteenth birthday!
I haven’t really gotten any presents yet. My camera isn’t in the budget at the moment, so I’m waiting on that and …well, I think everyone else may have forgotten my birthday. But that’s all right. I realized the other day that I don’t really have many friends in town any more (and the ones I have are always sooo busy) and I haven’t really celebrated my birthday since David was born, so …I’m okay with that. *shrug* It’s not like anyone else I know celebrates their birthdays either. (I’ve totally missed several friends birthdays this year. Maybe I should give them gifts today. It’ll be like Hobbits-meet-MayDay. You’ll just find something on your doorstep and wonder if it was from me. woo-hoo!)
To celebrate, so far I’ve eaten some cake, cleaned up several largish messes, played some Super Mario 2 & SuperMario 3, and then hosted a playdate (wherein several of the messes took place). Nick brought me some pretty flowers during lunch. After lunch I had a bit more cake (Ben wanted some: it’s his fault) and now I have one sleeping child and one child who is content to sit in a chair with his blanket & some books. It’s nice.
This evening is a boy scout night, so we’re having easy food, but food that we don’t normally have lately: ravioli! I love ravioli! And then afterwards we’re having Rocky Road ice cream. Mmm…
(while I’ve been typing, child-in-the-chair has fallen asleep. hooray!)
