Celebrate good times, come on!!

There’s a party goin’ on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times, and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate your party with you**

Yep. I’m STILL celebrating my birthday – how cool is that?   Alpha Hubby says I have a knack for milking my birthday!  These came on my birthday from Alpha Hubby.  He opted not to buy any from Wal-Mart after the debacle the other night (

Then we celebrated my birthday on Saturday since it was the first time he had free.  He deep fried a turkey using our Christmas present to ourselves, a Char-Broil oil-less turkey fryer.  OH major YUM without all the grease.  We had broccoli and sweet potatos – healthy meal.  No chocolate cake, tho.  I can’t just yet!

I received birthday emails and birthday cards, a surprise gift in the mail and let me tell you what, I feel loved!  It was my first birthday without my mom (the celebration queen), so how wonderful of my precious friends to share with me. 

Then today, these showed up from a friend in Louisiana:

I told the delivery lady I was dragging my birthday out as long as possible!  Then my brother informed me he’d sent me a gift – a first in …  well, a first, ever.   How cool is this?  It’s been fun.

And as a gift to myself this morning, I forced myself to get on the scale.  Boy, was I ever surprised.  I’d lost 5 pounds since last week.  Happy Birthday to me!  Makes all that water drinking well worth it.

Today I only have 12 more days on my “creating a habit” plan.  It’s getting easier and easier to drink plenty water and take my supplements.  I still have days where I wander off in the morning before I do it  but I do them as soon as I remember.   It has changed my attitude and outlook.  Just realizing I CAN DO THIS is a wonderful feeling.

Celebrate good times, come on!!  And honey?  We’re gonna have a good time tonight – let’s celebrate, it’s all right.  Heh heh heh.
