Happy Birthday's

As of June 8th, I got a year older....they are really starting to rack up now! 36 big ones came up against me. I have to say a couple HAPPY BIRTHDAY'S...To MrsDof...turned 50 on the 10th and I know Monica over at Pieces of us has a birthday coming in June also! Gemini's are the greatest ever, don't ya think?

I didn't do much for my birthday...that was planned in advance. I usually work on my birthday because i really don't care about my birthday that much. But this year i told myself take it off so some idiot don't come in the store and piss you off on a day that should be fun. I literally did not do much of cooking...just chill! I wished i had more of them.

Can I list 36 things that i am proud of out of my life?

1. Darin, he is the first and he gives me more reasons to list to be a proud mother
2. Amber, i love that she speaks her mind, and don't take crap from people...not even me and that makes us bump heads. But to know her is to love her. She loves to help others and I am proud of her for that.
3. Frank, He has been there for me thru the worst of times and I do love him!
4. House....I can't believe that i have owned a home for 8 years.

And I am proud to have a daughter who has accomplished all this, and is so much more than this. You have been self supporting at a very young age and I am bursting with pride for all you have and will accomplish. Hurray! and many more great birthdays ahead for you!

Happy belated B-Day Caroline. Sorry I missed it. :-( I'm glad to hear you had a peaceful restful day. You definetly deserved it! And you have so much to be proud of. We should all be more thankful for things we have.

Btw, do you have a myspace account?

Happy belated Birthday! I share the sentiments of a Gemini, and I think this is a great time of year to be celebrating.

I had to think a bit about how you say you are proud that Frank asked you to get married Before you learned you were pregnant. That does tell much about the relationship, so I'm glad you have a good marriage.
And such cute and smart children!

Also about being a manager... that's a big Congratulations! I was the dining room supervisor at a restaurant for a couple years, and what it taught me is that I am not a good manager.
I don't want nobody else's problems to become mine. I don't care that a boyfriend is cheating on her, or you want to go skiing the weekend of a huge reception already booked.
Maybe that's why I can sit and crochet away my time, is because I prefer to work alone.
It takes all kinds to make up our world, eh?
~~love and Huggs, Diane
