Well, I hit another milestone - thanks to all who helped celebrate. I have to say - while my own mother, among others forgot to call, (or maybe it was on purpose?) Facebook made it nice and I got birthday wishes from old high school friends who haven't wished me a happy birthday in years. As such, I think it all sort of evens out. I really had a great birthday.
One of my friends and I went out the day before and got pedicures and went to lunch - it was so much fun to spend time with her - Thanks V!
Since my volunteer day at the school fell on my birthday, I decided to take a birthday treat to the classes I work with(thank goodness the track team was selling cookie dough last month!) It was really fun to share it with the kids.
Later, I met my husband for lunch at my favorite restaurant and decided to try the rabbit dumplings, while my husband went for the pork tacos. I'd never had rabbit before, but I figure that if I'm going to try something new for fun, I'd rather do it in a REALLY nice restaurant where they really know how to cook for the best experience. I was surprised, because it wasn't a strong flavor, and the dish reminded me a little bit of creamed tuna. The pork tacos were amazing too. We switched plates back and forth a couple of times and both enjoyed everything.
School got out and I took the girls to gymnastics, and then we came home and a couple of our friends and neighbors came over for dinner. It was a very enjoyable day. I got to continue the celebration as another friend and I went out to my favorite greasy spoon joint the next day as well. I rounded out the week spending some time interpreting, and got to watch our daughter in a play, and hanging out at soccer games. All in all - an enjoyable week.
We are still counting down to graduation, and I've been totally immersed in a very large project that I am not currently at liberty to speak about. Once it is finished, I will post all about it. I've been spring cleaning, and we will begin to work on our yard. In 2 days, we'll be 100% done with school and life as we know it will completely change. Bring it ON!!
