Happy Birthday To Me!

*cue music*
Happy birthday to me!
Happy birthday to me!
Happy birthday to me-ee ...
Happy birthday to me!

I love birthdays - no stressing about getting a year older for me!  It's all about enjoying whatever age I currently am and getting the most out of it.  Of course, it doesn't hurt that Kiddo often tells me I'm not old at all (he has 4 grandparents and 2 great-grandparents to compare me to and I'm definitely younger than them!).

On my birthday I get to:
  • go work (boo!)
  • spend time with Kiddo after school (yay!)
  • help run tonight's Cub Scout meeting in which Kiddo's Den puts on a funny skit for the rest of the pack (yay!)
  • finally get to relax with Hubby late tonight (phew!)
But my real present (to myself) comes tomorrow when I get to:
  • pick up my copy of Towers of Midnight after work (squee!)
  • have dinner with a group of Wheel of Time fans, only some of whom I've met before (fun!)
  • join hundreds more fans at Brandon Sanderson's book signing after dinner, where I'll be steadily reading Towers of Midnight while I wait in line to get it signed (WOOHOO!)
I am SO EXCITED about this!  And to top it off, while I'm out having bookish fun Hubby and Kiddo are having their own Dad & Son night in which they eat homemade popcorn, drink root beer in glass bottles, and watch the Caps (ice hockey) game at full volume on TV. Friday will be a great night for everyone!

Thanks to everyone has dropped by today to say happy birthday here, on Facebook, or on Twitter.  You guys make my day!

PS. Since my blogging year goes from birthday to birthday, check back over the next few days to see which books I've picked as the best of the best from this year's reading!

Well happy birthday Heather! I didn't see that it was your birthday on FB which makes me wonder if perhaps we haven't managed to find each other on there...so I just went and looked, and we have not! So I'm sending you a friend request now. :D

Happy Birthday, Heather! Even though you have to work, I hope you have an excellent day! Personally I always thought we should get the day off work on our birthdays without having to use vacation, but ha! ;)
