Mom and I both forgot our cameras (oh, the horror!) so there are no pictures, but my birthday celebration was really nice.  We went to Carrabas for some great Italian food and then came back to our place for a while.  As soon as Zane was handed paper and crayons at the restaurant he started drawing purple P’s, like he was learning in the literacy playgroup.  (they are doing phonics awareness, this week was the P sound, where they read a story about Polly the Panda who parachutes to school where she draws purple P’s on pots and pans)  We have been doing lots of “P” stuff at home (wishing it would include using the Potty.  lol).  He sat fairly well during the meal and snuggled with Grandma when we got back to our place.  Zora, as usual, ate everything except what we put on *her* plate.  lol.  However, if we put it on Grandpa’s plate, it was suddenly much coveted.  She had Caesar salad, chicken, pasta, bread, mushroom raviolis…basically a little bit of everybody (except Zane’s) food.  She got a bit cranky at the end of the meal and Grandma took her out to let her walk a bit.  I wasn’t expecting her to spend time outside, so I didn’t have her in her full blown winter wear, so mom put her gloves over the ends of her arms.  When we came out it made a hilarious sight to see a tiny little person in a pink coat and hands appearing to be the size of her head toddling around on the porch of the restaurant.  (it wasn’t freezing or anything, just a bit chilly to be out there for long without gloves for a little person) At home she showed off her dancing and clapping to music.  A little charmer, that is for sure.

Dad took the utility carts that had been used as end tables that used to hold my computer.  The carts were about 14 years old, as far as we could figure, and have been used as everything from tv stand to microwave cart to end tables over the years.  It was time to retire them because they were looking pretty gnarly for a few years already.  They were cheap to start out with and well used.  They will conclude their lives in dad’s shop at home, where looks don’t really matter.  The reason they were finally able to go with dad is because I finally got a DESK!  Yeah!  A real desk (ok, so it is still a Sauder put together thing) that looks nice and is functional and everything!  We had to move the loveseat out of the living room in order to fit it in, which created about two hours of drama as it got stuck in the hallway trying to get it into Zane’s room.  lol.  It almost lost it’s legs, but we eventually managed to get it back there.  Now there is comfortable seating for adults in the playroom, which is nice. His mattress got stuck up on end since he doesn’t sleep on it anyway.  He is more likely to sleep on the loveseat anyway, and the mattress can be pulled out and used if we want to.

It was a nice birthday.

    I’m glad you had a nice birthday. 

    Didn’t you know?  Food always tastes better when you’re taking it off someone else’s plate.  ;-)

  • We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. — Martin Luther King Jr
