I have a lot to do today. I did not do any chores on my birthday. Yesterday I had dreams of doing great things, but after PWOC and the library I got a nasty headache/earache combo and that took me out for the rest of the day. Plus, my Dad is coming to visit tomorrow and he'd like a place to sleep and a place to sit at the table. I've got to arrange the things that are still stored in the dining room so that I can expand the table (it's one of the storage areas for the stuff we moved out of the east wing so that we could renovate). Those are the most important goals but not the only goals.
After dinner on my birthday, my husband cleaned up ALL of the dishes. NOT just the ones from baking my cake, no. ALL of them. He even hand-washed what wouldn't fit in the dishwasher. What a lovely birthday.
I got the new, new hard drive yesterday. My husband opened it up and saw that it is about 200gb less than MY hard drive that I PAID for. Sooooo ~ still no laptop. That one has to go back too. Also, I picked up an enclosure for the hard drive that crashed to see if I could retrieve my data. The guy at Radio Shack said it was the right one. It is not returnable. And it doesn't fit. FOOIE. I suppose I'll be spending some time on Ebay soon. As for now, I have to get to work.
I wanted to say, "Thank you" for all the wonderful birthday wishes and the gift verses. So awesome! A special thanks to my BFF IRL HisGirl for hosting my surprise virtual birthday party!
I also received a gift certificate for CBD from my parents(I've spent it 6 times for practice), a check for oodles of dollars from my in-laws, some birthday cards and emails ~ And these lovely words from a sweet friend who shares my same birthday....
