How's that for an alliterative title?
Happy Monday! The Monday before the "Ides of October," which also happens to be Emily's and my birthday. Yippee!!
Well, yippee, I think...
Emily is definitely more excited about her birthday than I am of mine. Somehow turning 12 is a little easier than turning 39-and-holding. I know it's just a number...but somehow the further away from 35 I get, the more I miss it...
And Happy Columbus Day! I heard on the news that they are trying to rewrite history and prove that Columbus was Spanish and not Italian...and I say: WHO CARES? I mean, really. He sailed the "ocean blue" in 1492, for goodness' sake. Isn't it a bit of a moot point now? Just saying.
So a busy birthday weekend -- my dad's 70th on Friday and a dinner with my mom and siblings and their families on Saturday -- gives way to a busy birthday "end-of-week." Emily and I have been brainstorming free ideas to do for our birthday "adventure." We decided that because it's such a "lean" year that it might be challenging and fun!! We shall see, right?
"Monday Movie Night" and the 24 countdown continue. Tonight's viewing (we hope) will be: The Proposal.
Busy week ahead. So ciao for now!
