Happy Birthday to me!!!

Before I get to the birthday stuff, please pray for my aide's husband, Josh. He had surgery today and is in a lot of pain. I'll update later on how he's doing.



Today is my birthday. I love birthdays -- especially mine! A few of my "parents" "surprised" me at lunch today with cupcakes (and a special one for me with a peanut butter cup on it!) I didn't have the heart to tell them that I'm not really crazy about peanut butter with chocolate. Don't get me wrong, I plan to eat it, I just won't enjoy it quite as much as, oh, let's say caramel with chocolate!!

The funniest part of the day came when they were asking how old I am! One parent said, "So, you're like, 20, right?" When I responded, "28" the other parents said, "I was guessing 23 or 24!" I gave them my typical response: "Come back in 10 years and tell me I look young then!!"

Some of the kids brought me some presents. In all, I got a pedi-egg (their mom teaches 2nd grade and is a good friend of mine -- the gift wasn't totally random :-), an air freshener, a matching necklace and earrings, and a DVD of Stargate SG-1 episode 200 with the Sci-Fi channel special (I found a soul mate in this mom -- a fellow Stargate fan!!!!) Some of the moms gave me money, too to help with my trip to Chile! I'm so excited!! Now it's off to dinner with my parents!!
