B I R T H D A Y S

wow... another year, another wrinkle, a walking, talking, little boy, a new part-time job...

so many new things... as well as a new year for this old soul inside of me. yes, today's my birthday, and you wouldn't think it, but i actually forgot this morning. it wasn't the first thought that crossed my mind (which is a first, lemme tell ya)... i didn't feel like pulling the sheets over my head or dread getting up and out of bed to face that 'birthday' day, and i didn't moan from the thought of it when hubby got up and sang, "happy birthday to you", while i was still snuggling next to the little one.

really, this is a first and i wonder why. why no complaining on my part? no bad mood because i'm another year older, no ..................... , no .................. , nothing. where has it all gone? why did i forget that it was my birthday? hmmmm.....

my friend, bint battuta's birthday is tomorrow, and then my friend, puppy, has one on the 7th of this month, and then another blog friend, rain, has one coming up... but i can't remember the date (i'm so bad w/ dates!!)... and i'm sure there are some others if i just think hard enough, but why put my precious brain and the few brain cells i have left thru such daunting tasks!!? ;) so i wont! :)

our wedding anniversary is also coming up.... strange since i NEVER remember it!! this year i did... that's a first! so many good things in such a short time frame. :)

anyway... instead of going on and on and on.... i'll just end it here and say, "Happy Birthday friends!!! May your day be filled with happiness, peace and love, and may the year bring you fabulous surprises around every corner of your world."

Um Naief said...

well, i left a msg and it just disappeared..i really can't stand it when that happens! ;)

but anyway, thanks everyone for the good wishes. i've really enjoyed my day so far. actually went shopping tonight w/ a friend at the MALL... it's been a while since shopping w/out naief, and, gosh, i felt like running, screaming, clicking my heels together... i could hardly believe i was there w/out him!! :) it's been a long time, can anyone tell?!! altho hubby says otherwise... i know it's the truth.

we're gonna go to an italian place that we haven't been to in a while tonight. ramadan starts tomorrow... so might as well get in all the partying while we still can :)
