I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!! One great thing about birthdays is you hear from so many people!! Thank you to everyone who sent birthday wishes.
Of course, my 86 year old mother called (even after she supposedly denounced me as her daughter), and this was some of the conversation :
Mother: Happy birthday, honey! I remember sixty years ago when the doctor…
Me: What?!?! Sixty years ago! Mother, I am 59!
Mother: What’s that??
Me (slow and louder): I AM FIFTY NINE!!
Mother (chuckling): Well, Ok, honey, whatever you want to call it! It can be 59 or 60…but when the doctor brought to me my baby girl…
Me: Mother! It is 59!
Mother: That’s OK…don’t get upset…I’ll call it 59!!
At that point I gave up! But it is 59! My husband and I were discussing at my birthday meal how we really do not feel that old….we really do feel younger! That’s a good thing…I hope we both continue to feel younger for a long time!
The heat is on in Texas and I know many other places! We also have an overabundance of bugs this summer since there were no freezes last winter. You can be sure I will pray for freezes this winter! Also heating up are the July sales….
I bought these fun rayon pants from Chico's for $20! They will be great for teaching this fall. The blouse was bought on a clearance rack from BEALLS for $10 just after Christmas, and the jacket is another clearance item from Chico’s last spring! Shoes are AEROSOLES wedges from Ross!!(Very comfy to walk in) The whole look would be about $70 as I build a wardrobe of separates to stretch the outfits!
If anyone else out there is facing accusations that you are lying about your age….then I feel your pain! Have an incredible Monday…..rejoice…and be very visible with the bloggers over at VISIBLE MONDAY and MONDAY MINGLE!!
