Somewhere between groundhog day and Abe Lincoln's birthday is ...February 9th. My birthday! I am at the perfect age... Somewhere between "Younger than Springtime" and "Older than Dirt".
Anyway, this birthday week has been great! It started out with me coming to school on Monday, February 8th and being told that I won the Superbowl pool. Yeah! I do not know football so I did not watch... and just put money into the pool to be a "team player" at school. :) And I won... Double Yeah!
Tuesday, my birthday, was made special when Mike and Jessie came to my classroom to bring me this gift and two trays of cookies for my class. My class was excited to meet Mike and Jessie ... an of course to partake in the cookie treats!
Beautiful orchid! Thanks, Mike and Jess!
My children called and wanted to go to celebrate but I had some mandated meeting at school to attend, so celebrating will have to be done at a later date. I did not mind so much attending a PTA Founders Day meeting on the evening of my birthday because I started celebrating my birthday month with my family with a weekend trip to Monterey ( blog post to follow) the weekend before my birthday week.
It is a short work week. Friday is forlough day... a non-paid day off... I'll take it... rest... :)
