Can It Get Any BETTER?!

I am just overwhelmed with all of the love I have been given this month. I have to say that this has been the best birthday I have ever had!

Started work today at noon. Had to do some work, and then on my lunch hour, I went to the Thrift Store down the street in Anaheim. Look at this place . . . 2 stories!!

For a couple of bucks each, look at the items I gifted myself for my birthday . . .

and look at this little beauty I found at the Goodwill (also in Anaheim) for a mere 99 cents!

I didn't have a lunch date, so I took myself to the International House of Pancakes - that would be IHOP *hee hee*, and treated myself to some strawberry french toast.

When I returned to the office, a young man with balloons and an orchid in tow, walked up to me and said "Are you Sherry? I hear it's your birthday". I replied, "Who is THIS from???" No card, no reply, no nothing. Isn't this the most gorgeous orchid?!

and still ANOTHER gift . . . a gift certificate from NORDSTROM from a friend!

Then my day job Manager stopped by during my class tonight, and gave me a gift certificate to 31 Flavors Ice Cream and Kelly's Coffee and Fudge.

And just when I think it can't get any better than this, the students in my class tonight pitched in and bought me a Catch Phrase game!

I LOVE these teens!

Ok, so it's 9:00pm and all of the kids have been picked up, my paperwork has been completed, lights turned out, and the place locked up. I head home and realize that we don't have any milk. I stop at the grocery store and pick up a few things, call my son to come out to the car and haul the groceries in when I arrive home.

Because it's my birthday (I'm sure that's the reason!), my son puts away ALL of the groceries, empties the trash can in the kitchen, and even puts a new bag in the trash can and puts it back where it belongs! WOW, I need to have a birthday EVERY day - LOL

Once I'm in my jammies and settled in for the night, I realize that I should probably do a load of laundry before I get in bed. So I head out to my laundry room, which is off my patio. Hey, what's that on the chair???

I bring the box in - open it - and can you believe this?! It's still ANOTHER book that was on my "Books I would like on my bookshelf" list! Yep, Lezlei and Amazon have hit again.

Thank you for the BEST birthday EVER!

Sounds like a practically perfect birthday, to me. So good, in fact, that I do believe you need to drag it on a little longer, don't you? Yeah, you do! So, I am sending you best wishes for a continued Happy Birthday!!!
