November: the month of my birth. Celebrations have commenced. Maddy has to attend a mandatory meeting on Saturday, so she gave me my presents early.
She also gave me a brooch and instructions not to actually wear it 'til I'm old... which must mean that I'm not there yet.
It is really awesome, and I almost can't wait to get old! Heh. Snagged at RiverEdge Galleries in Mishicot on a trip out to the lake, she also found this fabulous old photo:
My birthday will be celebrated intermittently and possibly even sporadically this year due to unforeseen circumstances from which the dust hasn't even settled yet. I was informed this morning that there had been plans for a surprise party (again!) (now scrapped), mainly because Addison would have loved it -- and I love that! I suggested that it would really be a surprise to have a surprise party for no good reason, when no one expected any sort of party at all! Maybe we'll have one in January for his mom.
Anyway, I was going to celebrate for a week, but, falling on a weekend, I couldn't decide whether I should call it the week before or the week after, and pretty much decided BOTH! And now, I'll just celebrate for as long as I feel like celebrating... could be right through Thanksgiving or even the whole month.
Haha! There will be cake.
