Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes, It's my birthday and I'll celebrate if I want to! I just turned 44 years old thirty minutes ago, woo-HOO! I'm so blessed, I can't believe I've lived this long...don't laugh...I used to think 42 was my cutoff date; I don't know why, it just was...and my husband wont let me live it down either. Well, I'm thinking I feel just spiffy so I think I'm safe to celebrate my second "extra" year, LOL!

I think I'll go see UP! today. And watch the pool guys as they clean the pool that I intend to waddle in as soon as it hits 90 degrees (well, if they show up, that is. Good help is REALLY hard to find in NH!). Aside from that there will be no Homeschool in the Mercado household today, we are playing hookey, big time! Hee-hee.
Now, I'll share my presents, which I already received yesterday. My sisters sent me ...drumroll please... an IPOD! Ok, so I'll confess that my first thought was "OH, I need to wait until GP gets home so he can "hook me up!" but little did I know that they had in fact realized that I needed a little extra help and the little Ipod was all set to go. It is LOADED with audiobooks to listen to while I do my crafting. How great is that? All I had to do was plug in the headphones and turn it on...and I was all set.


Now, my husband is not one to be outdone so when he saw what the girls had sent me he went out and bought me this....
So now my little Ipod sits in a throne of her own. Oh, isn't she the cutest thing???Oh, and she is Orange, of course! These women spoil me , what can I say??? Thank you ladies, I positively LOVE, LOVE,LOVE my little pumpkin. GP says it's named Pumpkin Patch and not Ipod because when you turn it on, it reads Pumpkin Patch. How'd they do that? I'll never know.
Oh, wait. GP wants to know when I'm going to add music to it and I told him that Mom's Ipod is for stories only. Then he asks me "but when the stories are all done, THEN you add music?" and I tell him, "No, when I listen to all the stories I pack it up and send it to T-Sandy who will erase the old stories and put in new ones" and Gino started laughing so hard I thought he was going to pass out. Oh, that's my husband. I guess he wasn't expecting that one...HMMM. Maybe he thought that I actually knew how to do something other than plug in the headphones? Hello! while he was playing with electronics I was teaching myself some crafting skills, duh! Men!

Anyway...hope your day is full of fun today. Take the day off, celebrate...after all, it is My Birthday, woo-hoo!
