It's My Birthday!!!

Oh, yeah...I'm hitting the big 47 today (20th)!!!

I am writing this at nearly midnight because I am going to sleep in on my birthday!!! Whoo hoo!

After 47 years, I have decided that I deserve a day of pampering for myself. Birthdays and Mother's Day are usually just like any other day for me...I still do the things that needs to be done and go on. But, this year...I've decided that I don't want to do that and I have earned a day for myself. So, here is what my plans are for my birthday.

Sleep in as late as I want to...Roger is getting Ty up for school and my friend, Simone is taking him to school for me. (She's the greatest!)

Get up (whenever that might be) and eat breakfast...whatever I want to eat (no diets or maintenance on your birthday)

Take a long, hot bubble bath and look at my magazines that I never have time to look at

Give myself a manicure and pedicure

Get back into my pajamas

Watch chic sweet friend, Mindy brought me 4 good ones.

Eat whatever for lunch (Sorry, Roger...not cooking you lunch either)

Watch more movies and play many games of Farkle on Facebook

Take a shower, put on make-up and clothes that I haven't been able to wear in 2 years (yeah!)

Pick up football boys after practice

Go wherever my family takes me to eat dinner

Come home and relax until bedtime.

Ahhhhh....sounds like a heavenly day to me.

I am boycotting all housework, cooking, dishes, laundry and my job for the day of October 20th in honor of Jennifer's 47th birthday! Life is good!

I will be thinking about each of you and especially, those who are working tomorrow...well, no...I really want but maybe you will think about me while I'm lounging at home, pampering myself. LOL!!!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
