Yesterday was my birthday. I have to say that I assumed I'd have it all figured out by now. Yet, here I sit clueless as ever. That being said, I did have a really nice day.
*I slept in.
*When I woke up, the newspaper was handy and Jay had made homemade beignets and coffee.
*For lunch I had a BLT and a chocolate ganache cake, courtesy of my mom and the boyfriend.
*After the horribly caloric breakfast and lunch, I went for a walk with the husband, then came home and laid around on the couch watching 30 Rock dvd's and reading.
*Early afternoon I opened a package of Runts candy, and there wasn't a single banana one. Score! I hate banana candy.
*Later on I went to the mall and bought myself some new long sleeve tee shirts, totally breaking the no-new clothes resolution from the beginning of the year. (I haven't mentioned it much here lately but I've been really good about not buying new clothes this year. All in all I've only bought 6 new clothing items: a pair of pants, the two tee shirts I bought yesterday, and three short sleeve tee shirts at the beginning of the summer. I don't believe these six items totalled $100.)
*I didn't have to yell at or threaten either child all day long. In fact, older child worked pretty hard to make the day peaceful.
To sum it up, I had a very sweet, low key day with my family. The only thing that pissed me off was that no one thought to bring me Alec Baldwin. I waited. All day.
Now today, the plan is to exercise, try to avoid the remaining evil cake in the fridge, and work on having it all figured out by the time I'm 34. Any words of advice?
