Bet Y'all Are Dying to Know...

How things went on my birthday...

Mom came by in the afternoon and brought me my bday present: Season 10 of Friends on DVD!!! Just what I wanted! Also a card with 40 bucks. :) Daddy came over just a few minutes later and brought me a different printer for my computer. The one he'd brought before we couldn't get to work like it should. This one is bigger and a lot nicer...finally when there's something I want to print out, I can!

Then Mom, Dad, the girls and I went out to lunch at a Mexican restaurant. MrKB was working and couldn't go. It was great! I had chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce. The employees sang Happy Birthday to me while I wore a purple sombrero on my head....bet I was a sight! It was all in fun.

Later, after MrKB got home, we took the girls to MIL's for the night and went out to the new casino at Remington Park. It's not bad, and we were actually doing pretty well on a quarter game, but played it all back again. I tried to tell MrKB we should cash out, but he insisted on playing some more. Oh well, it was fun, and we'd only put 20 bucks in it anyway. Never mind that we were up over 150 at one point...

We went back home sometime after midnight, and I would've had birthday sex, but MrKB had to be up at 4:30am to go to work. I told him to make it up to me later. ;)
Since the girls spent the night at Grandma's, I got to sleep in...woke up on and off a bit, but didn't get up for good until 1pm!! I hadn't slept that long in AGES!! It was great!

All in all, I had a better birthday than I thought I would.

Tonight is supposed to be our night to pick up Andy for the weekend, but his foster mom called last night...apparently there's some Christmas party thing going on for the kids at the therapist's office this evening and she wanted to know if we'd pick him up Saturday instead. Which is fine, really, but she should have called earlier in the week, not waited til the night before the day we're supposed to get him, don't you think?? You know she didn't find out about this party the day before, she's probably known about it all week. I'm debating emailing the caseworker about this...

Not much else going on...still haven't been able to do any Christmas shopping, have had to pay bills instead. I'm starting to worry that we won't be able to give the kids anything for their first Christmas with us. Sigh... I keep telling myself it will all work out, but I really don't know. And I know you're thinking "Why did you go to the casino then?" Because it was my birthday, dammit, and we only had 40 bucks anyway.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

Don't fret the small stuff. You'll find a way to buy the kids something. I know they will enjoy anything you give them. Hell, they would probably like the box it came in better at their ages.

Glad you got to have fun on your BDay!

I'm happy you had a good birthday. It's easy to get all wrapped up in the kids. I'm glad you took time out for yourself. I'd like to talk to you about something please email me at ajd_joseph@yahoo.com.

OK... but did he make up on the birthday sex? All you have to do is say yea or no. LOL!

Cheers and have a good weekend!

I am sure you will figure out something for Christmas with the kids. Kids at that age always remember what they did more that what they got anyway. The most important thing is to spend time with them.

Sounds like you had a good birthday. I hope you had an awesome rain check.
