I got two weekends of celebrations!
We went to Toronto and saw the Dead Sea Scrolls last weekend with my brother.
Then my mom came over the day before my birthday and brought yummy lunch from my favorite place and we went for a long walk with the baby in the sunshine collecting fancy twigs and milkweed pods for Christmas displays.
On my actual birthday, Sesame Street was even celebrating birthdays! and then my cousin and my friend took me out to a fancy dinner. and then laughed at me after my one and only drink.
Then I got a family birthday dinner on Saturday, and a family friends dinner on Sunday night.
Much better than some of the birthdays I have had. And my brother might actually get around to sending me my birthday present sometime before Christmas.
It kind of didn't feel like my birthday, and then sometimes it did. It was weird. Maybe I am just getting older and birthdays don't matter as much. hmm. not sure how I feel about that.
