Nice Birthday...

I'm so surprised by all the ATTENTION I've been getting today! I can't remember this happening since I was a kid...

First off, THANKS rose_amethyst, annaed770, ohmorningglory, scarletsherlock and shirasade for your birthday greetings! I really appreciate all of these!

ETA: Additionally, thanks to paradiz and uawildcatgrl for your greetings, too!

And thanks, Marilyn mistressmarilyn for my virtual gift! I love 'em. (I know, I know. Some people think they're stupid -- but I don't!)

So, I had my dentist appointment first thing today. (sigh) More details about THAT, later. (It was certainly nice of Marilyn to take time out of her very busy day -- with five meetings -- to take me to the dentist and also to leave off my prescription! You, ROCK, M.)

As we were getting in the car after the appointment, I got my first singing of "Happy Birthday" via cellphone from Jessica pb_n_jam! (Thanks, Jess.) Wasn't that sweet? I had many "Happy Birthday" songs sung to me today. (grin)

And many people have offered me greeting via phone, in person or by email! It's amazing, really. I have some very cool cards here at my desk! Marilyn got me the Batman one where Bruce Wayne talks (so cool!), and Jodi got me a musical one, and Rich got me a funny one and Dorine mailed me one here to the office. And I got a Starbucks card from Jodi and an Obama tee from Rich (so cool I might just save it and not wear it).

Sister Sue phoned and Shari phoned and Donn (my computer dude) phoned (and I talked to his wife Denise, too). It's just been so very many good wishes, I hardly know how to act!

The NaBloPoMo theme for December is THANKS, so each day this month I'll try to include something I'm thankful for -- or an example of the word 'thanks.'

I'm thankful:

For all the family, extended family and friends who have helped to make my BIRTHDAY a special day!

(I'm so lucky...)

For anyone wondering, this should have appeared at 5:28 p.m. Pacific Time -- but the screw up with journals here delayed it entirely!!! How annoying!!!
