Great Birthday

Saturday, September 18, 2010

I just had my 57 th birthday. I was able to spend Saturday with my oldest son and his wife. My spirit has been boosted. And yes I had birthday cake. I was amazed by the amount of food and cake my son could consume. It was like I wasn't eating at all. I did over do getting the house ready and making dinner. I am going to pay and no amount of pain medication is going to save me. I had to use multiple lidocaine patches to keep my head up. I know it wan't good to do but I didn't want to entertain from my bedroom. No room for chairs or a dining table. I have an invitation if surgeries are over to spend Christmas with the in laws. My daughter in laws mother starts making goodies weeks before the holiday and has a huge spread laid out.Last year was a challenge of taking one bite and feeding the rest to family.
My best girl friend sent me an incentive for weight loss. Eight charming tops in the next size down to use for a goal.They would fit now but they cling to my form more then I like.
I want to thank every one for the notes and goodies for my birthday. Everyone generousity brightened my day.

    I missed your birthday. Happy Birthday!

    The 8 tops sound like a wonderful incentive. I do pray that the surgeries will help you to become pain free. I would take the in-laws up on Christmas too. Time away could be a goal to look forward to, hopefully a stress-free time with family.

    I'm so glad you had a very Happy Birthday celebration. Hope your not in any pain from all the cleaning and such. I love the idea of one size too small, all the more reason to exercise more. emoticon emoticon

    Happy birthday, Holly--
    Hmm, we share something else in common with mine being close to yours. I am beginning to wonder about the possible validity to astrology when I run into somebody with the same birthday week and we share so much in common. (Although, an actress on my favorite remaining soap shares my birthday and I can assure you that we have nothing in common, lol. I am not sure that I could manage Alison Sweeney's life--but I'd sure like to have some time with a body and a bank account like hers, just to see what that might be like, teehee.)
    My husband took me to see the play my oldest daughter is in last night and they have a big fundraiser going called "Mrs. Claus' cupboards" and the place was gorgeous with Christmas trees and gift baskets and decorations and wreaths--and it put the holidays in my heart and thinking. Now, you are mentioning them too. Hmm, I have been trying to hold the though in my head that it is still summer. Both of you have helped me to have a reason to look forward to what is coming rather than me just thinking about my fear of the cold season and the misery I deal with when it is frigid and icy. I appreciate that gift from you both.
    Take care, Holly and enjoy being uh, 39!!
    Gentle hugs,

    It is good that you had your spirit boosted!

    Hmmm, the Christmas invitation does sound kind, but potentially dangerous for the figure.

    The tops do sound like a good motivation.
