Happy 43 to me and THANKS!!


(And I never did like Richard Petty much.)

We rode downtown last night to soak up the fireworks.  Had a great view from the riverwalk, basically front row seats!!  The weather was perfect, a light breeze, and good people around us...not the obnoxious kind I've experienced in the past.  Then it was off to Dairy Queen for an ice cream.

My birthday has been great....up early; my nephew came over (with his Mom and baby sister) to swim in the pool.  He's soooooo funny.

After about an hour a dark cloud came around so I had to get us all out of the pool. 

 Then TnT and I set off for town to get my nails filled and one fixed. (Missie, you KNOW our nails have to be perfect!)  After that accomplishment Tom said "we need to go to the mall and get you a gift" ......


I couldn't think of a thing I wanted.

But I needed a new pocketbook and Belk's was having a sale.  Found one I liked.  Proceeded to clothing and ran Tom away (I hate clothes shopping with him, especially now that I've gained so much weight).

Right now a lot of stuff has been marked down at least twice!  I got 2 pair of capri's and a shirt and a pair of black shorts.  Miss T found 3 shirts.

Then it was off to Olive Garden to meet Mom, StepDad, SIL, nephew niece, baby brother and have dinner complete with cake!  They sang to me twice.  Parents gave me some money - the best gift, one size fits all!


THANK YOU to everyone! for all the great birthday wishes.  I love you all!  Yes, LJ, Tom did good this year....actually bought a card a couple of days BEFORE my birthday. 

I've received so many snail mail cards, e cards, email siggy's and calls and such...I'm just overwhelmed by the love!!  Wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that I go around singing and reminding everyone that it's my birthday now would it??????

The beach house is empty for a couple of days....I think we're all going over there tomorrow afternoon to hang out and walk along the shore.  I started to go over there tonight, but I was just too tired to pack up and go. 

Nite all!  Have a great Sunday!

Happy Birthday.  You reached 43, which is what I reached six months ago.  Do you feel any different?  I didn't think so.  Take care and have a good Sunday.
