Born to Boogie

It's my birthday!! Yes, I still get excited when it rolls around.

Greg can't see me this week, so my friends are taking me out, ALL weekend long. I have very good friends!

I got to thinking who I knew that was born on March 28. In person, I've known only three other people born the same day as I was. Two were art professors and one was a martial artist who worked in military security. The only other three people I can relate too are Reba McEntire, Fra Bartolomeo, and St. Theresa.

So it leads me to believe that people born on March 28 must have a leaning toward the arts, can kick ass, teach, and like to dabble in religious mysticism. Yeah, looks like I fit right in.

Last year I was recuperating from surgery. This year I am recovering from shock. I have a book coming out, and two others that have been requested. I feel humbled and amazed all at once.

Even Greg is proud of me and that means a lot. I've taken a lot of time away from him and I wanted it to count for something. He's been so patient and supportive.

Anyway, gather round and grab some virtual birthday cake. I am celebrating and you're all invited!

Congratulations Maria. Hope you have a magical day, and thanks for the cake (always welcome, espcially the cyber sort with no calories *g*) and sending you lots of good wishes and cyber bubbles to celebrate with.

I brought the champers! Not the pretend stuff, but the real Frenchie deal. Flutes all around! :)

Thank you, everyone. It was a quiet weekend for me. I needed the time to recuperate after hitting it so hard for so long.

ah well, back to the grind.
