It's my birthday!!!

Today is my birthday and since the hubby got hurt and we don't have a lot of extra cash I wasn't really expecting anything. This morning we went to the mall for a Cinnabon cinnamon roll (I had a coupon for a free one, YAY) after physical therapy. We spent some time window shopping around the mall and then stopped to look at cars on our way home. My lease is up on my car this coming summer and I've been wanting to show him a car that I like but we've never seemed to have the time. So today we stopped and got a brochure and sat in the car. Then the school called. Kimberly was sick and in the nurse's office. That ended our leisurely day of window shopping.

I went back to the school for the other two a little bit ago and got on the computer when I returned home. I was sitting here reading this article about a 6th grader who made her own website to match pets in a shelter with homes which I think is pretty cool. It's amazing what kids can do with computers nowdays. I remember when I was in 6th grade and was one of the few kids to even own a computer. It didn't have Windows and I had to use DOS commands to access the couple of games (like pong) and the word processor that it had on it.

Sorry, I got a little sidetracked there. Anyhow, I was sitting here on the computer when the doorbell rang. Nobody else made a move for the door, so I got up to go see who it was. On the way to the door I asked if anyone was expecting anybody. The answer was no all around. So I answer the door and who is there but my friend Lara, and she brought me a present! I was so surprised. She was so sweet and got me some of my favorite things.

It's Mary Kay Satin Hands and my favorite lip gloss. When the hubby and I were at the mall earlier I was looking at hand stuff because my hands are just getting wrecked from washing them so much at work, but I decided I shouldn't spend the money on myself. My lipgloss has been almost empty for a while too, but I've been trying to use up every last bit. Getting this unexpected present just made my day.
