So yesterday was my birthday.... a day not much different than others, except that Brian brought home flowers and we went out to dinner. We tried a new place called BJ's. It was loud and the food was just so-so. Afterwards, we stopped in at Coldstone Creamery for a cup of ice cream. Even the ice cream was just so-so. Maybe my taste buds were off or something.
So today will be full of doing things I didn't do yesterday, like laundry. At least there are no lessons to rush off to this morning. I shouldn't have to leave the house at all, unless Emily is missing something she needs to take to camp. I will be taking her to Martinez tomorrow to ride the bus with a bunch of other kids headed to Sierra Bible Camp.
I'll leave you with this little exchange that took place over MSN Messenger yesterday while Halle was using my computer. She messaged my brother/sister-in-law:
Brother: Happy Birthday! Are you having a good one?
Karen: i am halle
Brother: Hi, Halle! How are you?? Is your mom having a birthday party today?
Brother: What are you doing this summer?
Brother:That doesn't sound like fun! I'll bet you'll do some playing with friends, reading, playing dress-up - fun stuff like that. Of course, I guess you can always help Mom & Dad with cleaning and dishes and stuff.
Halle: can i go
Brother: Sure. Bye!
Wonder why she initiated the conversation if she wasn't so keen to converse?
