It's my birthday (tomorrow) and I'll blog if I want to...


...and I don't. I'm going to be spending the big 3-5 saving my family from "holiday house." Holiday house is when you still have your Christmas decorations up, food going bad in your fridge from all the holiday party food that didn't get consumed and 5 over-flowing baskets of laundry. Wet snowboots at every door, two weeks of unread newspapers stacked on your table and enough dishes piled up in your sink to run 3 dishwasher cycles. I am buried, y'all, buried. Don't feel sorry for me, though. It's been a fantastic year, I can only hope for more of the same. See ya after my kids go back to school!

    I was going to take down my Christmas decorations today too but the kids want to go ice skating. I think public humiliation is a better way to spend the last day of Christmas Vaction don't you?

  20. Happy birthday too you....I still have holiday house, I will likely have holiday house until the last weekend in December. Being as it is all up to me and me alone to rid put away the holiday, and I would rather make chocolate chip cookies, then we are stuck with holiday house. Unless you want to come help me? That would be my gift to you.

    Thank Millie. She put me up to it.

  27. Wow! I feel loved. So many sweet birthday wishes, but none as tender as the last one. Thanks, Leo!

    I would like to thank my new favorite ticket taker at the Regal cinema for wishing me a happy birthday, too.

    I've been a bad, bad birthday girl. I still have my decorations up and a mountain of laundry to do. At least my kitchen is clean.

    I only dropped two of my three kids off at school. Mini Me couldn't find her coat, so went shopping to get her a new one. Then we kept shopping, and shopping and shopping. Whew!

    I'll be back in another day or two.

    Thanks again,everyone, for the all your nice comments.
