As long as I have you here, may as well list my birthday highlights:
*birthday greetings and wishes from so many beloveds, including a very opinionated cat and two snarky dogs.
*the gift of a high-test virus from the entire student body of Wheelock preschool, hack hack
*a card from my (soon to be ex) GOP big brother and his wife that said there'd be no birthday cake for me since "the Democrats took it, divided it up and gave it away to those not fortunate enough to have a birthday today"
*homemade gluten-free cake!
*free trip to Underwater Adventures as a "gift" from Roo (who coincidentally also had a freebie coupon for himself, wouldn't you know).
*silly hats and homemade cards from the lads
*a puzzle race with Hub (although he didn't let me win, not even on my birthday!)
*sister time (including completley unhealthy food, drink and socially inapproriate laughter volume for a public space)
*my own personal roller derby
All in all, a pretty good haul for an old lady!
