Rumors and Such

Mike called this afternoon to tell me that there is a rumor going around that I have a birthday coming up "soon". Guess that one is true. ::snort:: He's making one of his famous ice cream cakes for me. The younger ones were glad to hear that Dad is going to take them shopping tomorrow.

I had checked out this giant, paper back book from the library. Today my very own hardcover copy arrived courtesy of Paper Back Swap (link in sidebar).

Our 25th Wedding Anniversary is coming up. I was excited today at a PAC meeting to see that it falls on a 3 day weekend. We aren't sure what we'll do. For our 20th we rented a cabin out in the wilds of Alaska....but the girls are no longer living with us and so I don't know that we'll go away alone.....we shall see. The idea of actually having Mike HOME and OFF DUTY for an anniversary is exciting to contemplate. I think it happens about once every five years. ::snort::

One of "my ladies" - as in PWOC ladies - is taking me to lunch tomorrow to celebrate my birthday.

I got to talk to Mom and Dad tonight.

Krista called to let me know that Clif bars and Luna bars have been added to the peanut butter recall list...evidently she is fielding LOTS of calls on this whole thing at work.

Choosing Joy!

Happy Birthday! Hope you and Mike can at least sneak away for a dinner or something for your anniversary....

If you can find a way to get out of town w/your hubby for anniversary, do it! That way he can't be called in to work for an hour or two or three or four or a day! lol

Can you trade a weekend w/another local family? Your older ones stay w/Josiah for the weekend and the youngers with another family and then then in turn that family leaves their children with you for the weekend while they get away.

This anniversary is too good an opportunity to miss! Could you take the camper out and that way you have together time, but aren't too far in case of emergency?

OK, I'll stop planning your life! {VBG}

Sis: Mike/you are 1 in a million. Who else had a Christmas theme for you wedding on Valentine's Day. :):):) Love the independent spirit you two show! :) Knew he was the one for you and our family seeing this type of independence. :):):)

Happy birthday in advance and certainly hope you can get away for your aniversary.

I hadn't thought of the CLIFF bars I have in my pantry. They were purchased quite awhie ago though so does that make any difference? I haven't really followed the pb recall much since I didn't think we had anything with pb in it... Guess I better find out.
