Happy Birthday to me! And so far, this day has been all about me. Started with breakfast in bed but then it got even better. My husband had asked multiple times what I want for my birthday and I couldn't think of anything I really wanted. But then it dawned on me. I could ask for the thing that I've been waiting for years to happen. Yep. I asked to have the garage cleaned out. Best. Present. Ever. Well, maybe not ever because I have received some very nice gifts over the years but I can honestly say that this gift was far better than anything he could have wrapped in a box for this birthday. We spent hours working on it. Even with some help from the #2 child we didn't get finished but had to stop since the poor man does have to work sometimes. We got enough of it done that I could feel a sense of accomplishment.
If I'd been thinking, I'd have taken before pictures. I could still take after shots I suppose but I don't think it would show the marvelousness of the gift adequately except by comparison. I still have a carload (actually, it will take two trips) of stuff to deposit either at the thrift store or recycle.
It was embarrassing to open the garage door for the neighbors to see how bad it was. Sooooo much better now. So, Happy Birthday to me. :)
