Happy Belated Birthday to Me!

I am a little late. Yesterday was my birthday.  I had a great day.  Went out with my friend Jan and we had lunch with a couple other ladies and then went to Borders.  Saw another friend there at the magazines and talked about quilting for a while.  It was fun, I felt spoiled.  It is great to grow old if you have a great friend to do it with. 

Took the kids to gymnastics and then came home to a wonderful dinner, my husband is a great cook.  He made me cake also and the kids had a great time singing “Happy Birthday” as loud as they could to me.  Again, I felt so spoiled.

It is hard to believe I am 39, I never think of myself as being that old.  Well not old but, yeah old.  I only feel it when I am trying to play around with the kids and “exert” myself too much.  Sometimes I think I should have started younger, maybe I would be a little better at keeping up, but then I think back and know it would not have been a great idea.  I had them when the time was right and I need to just get busy and in shape enough to keep up.

My computer is making some kind of awful noise so I better get off before it explodes.  Not even a year old and the dang thing is messing up for the second time.  I am good at picking out the lemons.  I don’t want to be without one so I haven’t taken it to the shop, I better do it soon!! Yikes!

Happy Birthday! I want to come and live in your pantry - look at all that fabric! Your kids would be like 'Mom - why is there a strange lady living in our pantry?' How many gfg flower's do you have now - I'm on 22 this week! I think I'm going to put this on my sidebar.

Thanks Lynn!! Don't give up keep the flowers coming. I need a partner in this awful obsession. I have not been making the flowers just the hexagons. Maybe tonight I will sew what I have together and see where it gets me. You rock getting 22 done!! You are my hero!
