on being a year older
Aside from the fact that I had to go to work today, and couldn't stay in my pajamas all day, it was a good day: the ladies were sweet as pie and bought me lunch; I managed to get all my annual work evaluations done (DREAD OVER! WOO HOO!); I responded to the 80+ emails that had accumulated over my long weekend; I got caught up on paperwork, and by golly, my desk is cleared off! A good day, indeed!
Now I'm home and getting ready for a birthday dinner with Grumpy and Prairie Dawn.
Grumpy is a townie who I've recently begun hanging with; he's one of those slightly-chip-on-his-shoulder-grouchy-heart-of-gold-guys, like Luke on Gilmore Girls, or Nick on New Girl, or Grumpy from Snow White.
I'm excited to have friends in Sticks and people to go out with on my birthday. I'm thinking about so many good celebrations and the people I celebrated with; I'm thinking of my family and dearest friends. Birthdays truly are about taking it all in and being grateful, no? Birthdays always make me nostalgic, so, enjoy:
