Plus Six

It is that time of year again, if you can believe it, because I sure can't.
My birthday.
At dinner, Tarzan asked me what my birthday means to me and I had to think...One year closer to renewing my driver's license I guess. It's not like I have goals to achieve by reaching a certain age anymore. I can vote, buy cigarettes, drink and rent a car. I've hit all the milestones.
Taking stock of the last year, in no particular order, let's see what went down:
  • I was called to be Relief Society President in our congregation.
  • I got an iPhone! Now I can't imagine living without it
  • Saw my baby brother graduate from high school, enter college and now he doesn't call me back because he's so grown up.
  • Tarzan and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary.
  • And went to the Rockies for Thanksgiving because Tarzan's parents will be out of the country for this year's celebration.
  • Celebrated 5 years of this here blogging thing
  • Was part of the entourage to watch the Endeavour shuttle being moved to it's new home.
  • Saw BHB and Seth through engagement and wedding and into bliss
  • Helped Tarzan coach his Academic Decathlon team to three medals and a "most improved" certificate.
  • Took a hiatus from blogging while the world went insane and then came back with a vengeance.
  • Saw Wicked for the zillionth time and loved it just as much as the first.
  • Built a hay shed in the Desert
  • Redid the front yard
  • Took some mini-vacations with Tarzan including the Best Family Reunion EVER and a train ride home.

This is me and I am amused at how many people think I'm still in my 20's. That's a nice compliment every time it comes out.

Happy Birthday...after the fact. So glad you had such an ambitious year to celebrate. So glad, also, that I know you to be able to wish you Happy Birthday, again...albeit unfashionably late. Humble apologies.
Good luck creating another awesom list of accomplishments.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY
ELIZABETH DEAR,
HAPPY DAYS WILL COME TO YOU ALL YEAR.
IF I HAD ONE WISH THEN IT WOULD BE'...
A HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU FROM ME.
