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 (www.joy-cafe.com/blog).
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.
