Birthday

Today is my birthday!

And what am I doing today? Working! Fun…Not! Sundays are a bit slow in the library, so that will be nice, but I am still sick, so not too fun. Its also my sisters (the evil twin) and my grandmothers birthday too. I hear that they will be doing fun stuff today.

When you are a kid, birthdays are the exciting and fun, but when you are an adult they are just another day of the week.

The fun part of my birthday this year is my gift. I saved up my Christmas money (yes I know, how odd is that! I am soo not the saving kind of girl) and pooled it with my Birthday money (plus a little bit extra, well a lot extra) and bought a briefcase from Saddleback Leather Company. I first ordered a Messenger Bag, but it was too small, so then I upgraded to a Briefcase. Then they sent me the wrong color, the Dark Tobacco Brown instead of the Dark Coffee Brown. There is a huge difference in color. So I had to send that one back and wait for the new one, plus deal with trying to get the refund from the Messenger Bag. After many emails with Customer Service, it finally arrived. Ahh…its a thing of beauty. You can smell the leather from the other room. It holds a ton of stuff, including a 17 lbs kitty named Che!

  1. In memory of your birthday (and Michelle’s) I made the Carole cabbage salad for an Easter picnic that we had today. I had to go to 4 separate stores to find all the ingredients (although I didn’t even bother hunting for water chestnuts), and taking a big old head of cabbage and dicing it into itty bitty pieces took some time (no packaged grated cabbage here), plus inventing my own sauce packet out of an envelope of salad dressing and vegtable bullion…but in the end it remended me of your home.

  3. Hi Melissa,

    You always did love that salad! But no water chestnuts? Now thats just sad šŸ™ Very clever of you to make your own sauce.

    You know, we could drop you off in the woods with a Swiss Army knife, some string and a bullion cube and you could totally MacGyver us a 4 course meal! Haha!!
