The day went by without any fanfare. In fact, it was a rather humdrum kind of day. Sometimes birthdays mess up a person's mind. We're conditioned to expect it to be extra special and exciting.
Thank you, everyone, for the birthday wishes! My lovely reader, Huier, sent me a gardening journal and lovely card. That's such a great gift. Thanks so much!
While I always attempt to make birthdays special for my kids and loved ones, I was disappointed that none of them put in any effort today. I wasn't expecting a party or anything, but still...
I guess boys are just not into such things. After a long day at work, I wasn't planning on slogging in the kitchen on my birthday, so I suggested going out for dinner. Imagine, I have to give myself a treat on my birthday! Sad.
YK must have felt sorry for me because he went to the florist and bought me a bouquet of lilies after dinner. That finally brightened up my day. Well, happy birthday to me.
