Birthday-Parts 3 and 4

Alright, we are coming to the end of my birthday celebrations. Saturday Brian brought me home a Barbie cake after his class, we ordered Chinese food and opened my presents. I loved my Barbie cake. It was perfect. Riley and Jordan are so sweet. They gave me a Dukes of Hazzard poster featuring none other than Jessica Simpson. I have no idea where I’m going to hang it quite yet, probably in my closet. Darby gave me the Beyonce CD I asked for and Brian came through with the Faulkner books I had on my list, as well as the Chocolate Barbie I wanted. I will be posting pics of my loot soon.

Sunday we went to breakfast at IHOPS with my mom and two sisters. It was bearable. I didn’t die like I thought I might. I have low expectations for time spent with my family. I don’t know why. Brian says it’s because I’m a bitch. Rude!!! Anyway, I had French Toast and it was delicious and the kids ate their entire breakfast which is always pretty good so the breakfast was a success.

Now all that’s left is my birthday movie. I wanted to go see Dukes of Hazzard, but now I’m not so sure. I know it’s not going to be a great movie with great dialogue and a great plot line, however, I don’t know that I want to spend all that money on something that’s going to be just so-so. I might wait until it goes to the dollar theatres and see something I’m positive will be entertaining for my birthday. Who knows.

Peter Jennings passed away. I don’t know why, but I find this sad. I don’t even watch the news and when I do, it usually isn’t ABC, but I heard the news last night and I was mournful.

But, I had a fabulous birthday and I’m very happy how everything turned out. And I love that Brian is so sweet and does everything to make sure my birthday is fun!!!

  • I was at an even that Peter Jennings spoke at last year. He was very genuine, courteous - oozed charm (and I'm not even really a Jennings fan!). It was not long after that that I found out he had cancer. It's very odd now, hearing about his death. I'm shocked, but its even more of a reality jolt realizing someone like that isn't immortal.

  • I think that might be why it's so shocking. How can Peter Jennings die of lung cancer of all things? It is shocking. He wasn't a young man, but he certainly isn't old enough to pass on. At least I don't think those.

  • Glad you got your Barbie cake! There are reasons for having low expectations for time spent with your family. I know I have low expectations of mine. Just last night I was ready to kick everyone out after cake and card time. :)
