If I knew 50 was going to be so great. I would have turned 50 last year. I am totally doing it again next year!
No seriously, I am!
My great kids bought me a dishwasher!!!!!
That might seem lame to some but just ask daughter Eggs, mother to Hoo. She jumps to wash the dishes after dinner cause she knows how much I hate it.
China, who is so exhausted taking care of new baby Li. She will be pulling on the sink gloves insisting she likes to do the dishes. Yeah and I like root canal.
Maybe they got the dishwasher for themselves….hmmmmm. Naw it’s for me.
Ta Dah!!!! Dishwasher rocks! Thanks kids!
Husband gave me yellow roses which I think symbolize jealousy. He always gets them because when I was delivering my first baby there was a picture of yellow roses on the delivery room wall. I used it as a focal point. Good times, good times.
He also gave me a chocolate bar.
He also did give me the awesome kids so that covers a lot of gift giving.
Now my younger sista gave me a handbag made of seat belts. She is all about the off beat. The bag is kinda cool and should fetch a nice price on Ebay. Thanks sis!
Now middle sista gave me jewels!!!
Pretty earrings small and dangly and an evil eye keeper away-er bracelet.
Now my big sis sent me a gift card to…..you guessed it…..every white middle class woman’s favorite fake french thrift store Anthropologie. Wooohooo!
I’m getting a whatnot! I’m getting a whatnot!
It’s awesome! Thanks big sis.
Then to make the best day ever even better China and her hubby Silver treated me to
Cirque De Soleil. It was a blast. Why the big fat man sitting right next to me had to get up and switch his seat just cus I was waving to the performers I do not understand. It was a circus!
I was the one who should have changed seats seeing as he had to pass gas before the show started and I was not going to spend my evening smelling other people’s flatulence. I (kindly, I think) mentioned to him that the port o’ potties were just outside the bigtop. Anyhoo, he moved, and I had plenty of room to wave my arm off.
The show was “Totem” and although not historically accurate (American Indians did not roller-skate) was a great performance.
Thanks to China and Silver for a perfect ending to a great day. Here’s me and China at Cirq.
So thanks to everyone for all the happy birthday wishes.
Thanks for all the fun.
Thanks for remembering me.
This is gmom.
