Today in My World

I am totally feeling like this...

Thanks to Noel who sent me this handy mood indicator for my fridge as a nice little birthday gift along with a few other goodies.
Everyone who now enters my apartment can refer to it before approaching me to ensure it is safe.
Max can refer to it to ensure that I won't go bonkers when he trys to give me advice on how to cook dinner.
Very helpful.

But I am seriously feeling exactly like this lady looks.
Just indifferent about everything.
It may be because my "aunt" is scheduled to come to town and I am pretty sure that yotch will make her appearance for my birthday or maybe it's because I am coming to the realization that I am getting closer and closer to 40.
Egads!
Or maybe it's because the windchill here was 25 degrees below today.
Whatever the reason, it is making my loved ones crazy who keep calling with the last minute..."What do you want for your birthday?" question.
"I don't know.....cash?"

I also got some great cherry themed fabric from Maryann, who also sent along this little notebook she made...isn't it cute?!!

One of the things I love about blogging for sure is the cool friends I have made and not only was it super generous of her to send off that fabric but the little book makes it even more special, she's just fab like that.

And this little card came a couple days ago from my buddy Carol.
It is super cute, look at all that bling!
And the "frosting" on the cuppie cake is perfect, liquid pearl? or white ep??
Do tell!

The kids are off school tomorrow, so I have taken off work as well.
I don't normally take the day off for my birthday but it is a Friday and the kids are off anyways so I figured...why not?
What I will be doing??...haven't a clue yet.
But tomorrow I am looking forward to a nice dinner with just my immediate family at one of my favorite spots, just a small group of 12.
I'm sure I'll be back tomorrow...but in case I am not....
Have a super lovely weekend.
