My birthday week

Somehow, the revelry has expanded this year from a mere day to an entire week-long celebration. It started on Monday, when Mom had flowers delivered to me at work. (Note: they were SUPPOSED to be delivered today; however, the florist made a mistake. It was actually pretty cool, though, because that made them totally unexpected. Plus, I was doing trainings at other schools today, so I wouldn't have been there to get them anyway. See? It all worked out.) Because of that, though, most of the school thought my birthday was Monday, so I received birthday wishes from the staff all day. It was fun. =-)

Tuesday, I went out after school with some friends from work.

Wednesday was the last day of school this week for the kids, so that was my day to celebrate with them. They brought me cards, and I was surprised mid-day with this delivery, courtesy of my class:

The parent who "sponsored" this cake swore up and down that the name on the cake was an innocent error on the bakery's end. I'm not so sure. ;)

Oh yeah, and I went out after work again on Wednesday, too.

And we maybe went out today, as well.

Tomorrow, though, is the highlight of Birthday Week. We have tomorrow off, so we're meeting at the bar. At noon. To do shots.

Because we can.

And then we're going to walk next door to the movie theater to see Paranormal Activity.


Anyway, that's the story of my 33rd.

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes. And so begins the last year of my "early" 30s....

What a great birthday week! I'm kinda jealous of the noontime shot party! Tip a lemon drop (instead of a fo'ty) for me :-)

I wonder how many screams will be heard in the theater from a bunch of drunk teachers? LOLOLOL. Have a fab time :-)

Oh, and your birthday revelry will last even LONGER than a week because I'll be preparing your package on Monday. Better late than never, right? At least I got the card out on time :-)

Holy crap! What a great birthday week. Especially the shots at noon. "Because we can." Love it.

Nowadays, I just go out to dinner for my birthday. After reading this, I may change my plans for next year.

Noontime shots should be an annual ritual for everyone on their bday!
