It's remarkable how time really does move faster when you're a grown-up. Eventually you also realize that the world doesn't stop to honor another year of your presence on this earth. Honestly, I barely have the time to stop and notice. The husband remembered it, so kudos to him.
I guess it's a good sign that I wouldn't know what to put on a birthday list if anybody had asked me to make one. Eventually I came up with something I really wanted so Dave could get it for me. We went out for dinner, which is enough party for me.
Unfortunately, the house is still falling apart, or being actively destroyed by kitchen appliances from hell. But that's another story, shortly to follow.
Dave keeps saying he'll post someday and reclaim his half of this blog. We'll see if circumstances ever give him the time.
