It's Not My Birthday

The Warlock and I have decided that holidays CAN and SHOULD be postponed--even birthdays.

Monday we decided to head out of town, towards San Antonio for a little birthday celebration for me. And then Nick found out that the ward was in need of a chainsaw; our trip turned into a rapid hunt for chainsaws with the hope that we could get the Warlock back to use the new chainsaw on some road-blocking trees. (There are many.) Finding a chainsaw was a trick and we did make it all the way to San Antonio before finding one...but, not before stopping at a MacDonald's for breakfast. "Excuse me," I remarked, "This is where you're taking me for my birthday breakfast? Let's trade birthdays. It's not my birthday."

Thursday, I rolled over to Nick. "Happy Birthday." I kindly whispered. "It's not my birthday..." he grumbled with a smile.

So there you have it. We're still 30--NOT 31, yet.

I say postpone all you want until a true opportunity to celebrate presents itself! I'm glad you're all safe and sound and grateful for the blessings surrounding you!

Happy not-your-birthdays to both of you! And I agree. Postpone until there are better dining options than McDonalds.

Does this mean you have power back?

Happy Un-Birthday to the both of you!

I say postpone your birthdays to November 15 and November 18. Hopefully, things will be more normal by then. Besides, why not try something different - see what it's like to have a November birthday.

I like to celebrate a birthday month. Audra always makes fun of me because at the start of February, I like to get the celebrating underway! Pretty much if anything good happens to me during the month, I attribute it to being a birthday present for me. Feel free to do the same kind of celebrating and for pete's sake, McDonald's definitely does not count as a birthday meal (unless you are five and it's your favorite little lunch place!) p.s. does the chain saw count as a present for the Warlock?

Happy not your birthday!!! You are not turning 30 because I just turned 30......I think.
