Its official now!

Yep, its official. I am 37 and a day. Even though my Dad looked across the table at me last night and said, "So 38 eh" And I said, No, and at first he didn't believe me (!) but I had him do the math and reminded him I was the second born and he then seemed convinced. Crazy Pop! So business things first, The winner of my first ever (though I am sure I will do this again) birthday giveaway is...

I will email you for your mailing address and then I will get your goodies in the mail! Thanks everyone for playing!
Secondly, look at some of my fun birthday gifties. My sister, who is a world class shopper, left little presents all over the house. It was nuts! This was on the dining room table. How great is that thermos? This is the third little white ceramic bird she has given me. I guess I am collecting them now! They really are so charming. And who doesn't like bamboo? She really spoiled me!
Sadly, there was no spoiling coming from our usually pretty considerate neighbors (though there is a love affair with the leaf blower going on over there that I can't even begin to understand. Oh, and good news, he now has a pressure washer...) At any rate, I can handle the daytime noises. And I m even pretty cool with the noise until 12:00 / 12:30 a.m. HOWEVER when you have a backyard full of four guys drinking until 4:00 a.m. , by the time all that beer is drained and it is 4:00 a.m., it sounds more like 40 guys. Oh,and did I mention it was over 100 degrees yesterday? So at 12:00 a.m. in the house, it was 90 degrees - in the house!! So after being woken up every ten minutes by grunting noisy sreaming laughing "men", I had to close all the windows. The I steamed from the heat and because I was mad until 4:00 when they all passed out. We just weren't sure what to do. We figured they would wrap it up by 1. Then they were al pretty lit so who wants to go ask a bunch of drunk fools to please be quiet? We talked to their mom today and I hope that will be that. At any rate, I woke up with that special kind of crabby that comes from no sleep. But hey, we will be in the pool in anopther hour and I will be feeling pretty good!
I have to say a big thanks to Lorinda over at www.lorindarants.blogpsot.com for the shoutout on my birthday on her blog! She is a wicked good knitter! Plus she called me an estate sale scorer extrodinaire which you will believe when you see the treasures I scored last weekend! That will have to wait unitl next time- the pool is calling!
* I just have to say that we just had two very sheepish and sweet boys come over and offer apologies for being noisy last night. The one said he had war buddies in town so they were pretty excited. It made me feel really sad that at his young age he already has "war buddies". Then he told us he is getting married in September and I said a little prayer of thanks that he came home safe and sound to his bride and the rest of the people who love him.

Recently my dad told someone at church that I was 36. The person actually told him that he didn't think that was right. He had to go ask my mom. I am 32. But my parents have been married 36 years. He got his #'s confused.

Happy [belated] Birthday, Mo! Hope you had a wonderful day. You're a nice neighbor, I would have stuck my head out the window and told them to pipe down. =) And I have to agree that you are quite the estate sale extraordinaire, I just saw the bundle of fabric you sent Molly, and oh my, its wonderful! I owe you an email...
