Another Year for Me

Well today marks my 59 birthday! Birthdays bring back so many happy memories. I grew up always having a birthday party. It was usually a Valentines theme with those little candy hearts as party favors. My mom went way out and always decorated with the streamers and balloons..
These years it is a little sad though because I miss my parents so much. There is something about birthdays and moms. Even on my kids birthdays I always get that ping in my heart. So today I shed a few tears thinking back and missing her. I'm sure they are both looking down on me and smiling.
Last night I went out for dinner with the girls from work. We went out for Mexican and it was yummy. Today they had cake at work for me. Tonight Kevin and I going out to dinner for Italian (my favorite) and possibly see a movie.. Then home for cake and ice cream with the kiddos. Enough of the celebrating...
Yesterday my daughter helped me post a profile picture on facebook. I had no clue how to do it. Now to figure out how to post one here. hmmmm. I shall try one of these days. Or perhaps wait until I have one of Kevin and I together.. I really hate having my picture taken. I have always been the one taking pictures..
Okay time for maybe a very short nap before heading out again.
