Happy Birthday to Me!
Today is my birthday! While I was driving home yesterday, my phone started buzzing with early birthday wishes from Facebook friends. I don't have any special plans for today other than regrouping after my trip. The next couple of weeks will be very busy for us.
Tomorrow our older son and his wife will arrive in Boston, returning from their year in Spain and lots of traveling adventures. They will be with us for a couple of weeks before they fly back to the West Coast to get resettled in the San Francisco area. We're planning a trip to Cape Cod and several family get togethers while they are here.
Have you heard of a "Golden Birthday" - the birthday when you turn the age that is the date of your birthday. For me it was the year I turned 10 on the 10th. My Mom made it a special day by setting an alarm clock to ring every hour and every time the clock rang I got to unwrap a gift (the gifts were small things like a bottle of nail polish, a hair band, a candy treat, etc.).
Well, this year my age matches the year I was born and I was wondering if there was a special name for that... If you know what that might be called, please tell me!
I hope you have a great day - have a piece of cake and celebrate with me!
