almost 30!

Today I'm 29 years old. Wowza...getting closer and closer to the three-oh. I have to say it doesn't bother me one bit. I'm comfortable and happy.

I'm also totally behind in life, thanks to J's surgery. He's doing really well, but I honestly took a big break and just concentrated on him. We have spent a lot of time together over the last week or so, and I have to say it's been awesome. Fun and bonding and all of that. Making me wish I could stay home with him more often. Oh well...onwards and forwards and it's time for some catching up!

The lovely and charming Stayce (aka BK @ MC) tagged me.

The rules are : List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets. Tag 5 friends and list them. Then, those people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, and state the rules, and tag 5 more people. Don't forget to let the people you tag know by posting a comment on their blog!

My response:
Weird? Me? Never.
Right then.
1. I have a thing about being able to see open cupboard doors in my peripheral vision. It bugs the hell out of me.
2. Yesterday I ate three pickles for breakfast.
3. Sometimes I'm a neatfreak and sometimes I'm the most disorganized and messy person. And I'm becoming OK with that, even though even I think I'm weird that way.
4. I don't watch any TV or movie at home without doing something else (cleaning, scrapping, sudoku, fidgeting, falling asleep if I attempt to just sit on the couch and watch).
5. Sometimes I let my cell phone die and I don't charge it for 3 days.

And, because I suck and I'm a procrastinator and I have to get to work and can't think of 5 people to tag and I don't have time to go and tag them on their blogs right now and I'm often the killer of the tagalicious blogger fun....I tag no one. My heartfelt apologies to anyone who is sad and disappointed by my actions.

Just a few more things...

Today, I walked into work and my office was decorated ceiling to floor. My sister hung mosquito nets and ribbons and streamers and a happy birthday banner and then she and Josh and Leanne hid around the corner to jump out at me and yell "surprise! happy birthday!" and then started clapping. It scared the crap out of me but then I laughed. I almost spilled my coffee, though, which would not have been good. At all.

Last night, I went for dinner with my mama and my sisters and my auntie and my friends Colleen and Maridee. To Watermark. It's ON the beach. Oh. My. God. It was amazing. I had grilled salmon. Prawn spring rolls. A martini. Some amazing red wine. Others had seafood stirfry. Mussels. Steak. The food and company and surroundings were incredible. I took some photos, but haven't downloaded them yet. Hopefully some turn out!

I also have new hair for my new age. It's been almost a year since I got my haircut. Have I mentioned that I am a procrastinator? Yeah...well, here it is. (I got one bright red streak and Jaxon tells me I have FIRE HAIR...like a superhero. That's right boy...just call me....SUPERMAMA!!!). And now I really must get to work!
