AHHHHHH!!! The big day has come and gone and I truly had a blast. My day started off GRAND...my son's flight was suppose to arrive at 9:30 at night...but he went to the airport in the morning to see if they had any openings to get here early...and sure enough...he caught a flight and called his dad and told him to pick him up at 9:30 in the morning...... so when my hunnie got home it was such a grand surprise to see my son walk in with him. Now that is what I call a GREAT present. He wanted to get here earlier so that we could spend more time together...and I am so glad he did.
Throughout the day we chatted and he got to spend some great time with his dad and his sister so that made me very happy....everyone outside playing around working on cars just fiddling with whatever. We really had a nice time. I actually went outside and stayed out there for about 30 minutes (which is alot for me) and it felt great.
Then around 5:00 we left to go out to dinner....I would have been very happy with an all you can eat buffet type of place...but my hunnie and the kids decided to take me out to LongHorns Steakhouse. OH MY GOSH---the food was delicious and it seemed we ate for hours on end. We talked about everything under the sun and laughed deliriously and just kept on eating. Everyone decided to go to Walmart to see what fun deals we could find.... Well to make a LONG story short...we did some wild shopping...I got my crazy daughter some fun makeup stuffies...(no serious makeup...lip gloss and such) and I found a couple of things for me...nothing special...just things I needed..but the BIG NEWS is that when we got home...myfamily surprised me with some GREAT gifts. My hunnie bought me a FANTASTIC new digital camera...I just about cried...because I have missed mine so much...it holds up to 272 pics in the memory (WOWOWOW) and the pictures are so much sharper and it comes with all kinds of buttons...LOL I am in heaven.
My little girl bought me an Angel Pendant for my necklace...I have never had one even after all these years of collecting angels.... and now I finally have one and it is GORGEOUS...I cried...it is just so beautiful and means so much to me.
My son bought his gift in tennessee...it is a wooden basket (really awesome looking) filled with all kinds of scented stuffies for me....just what I love...so again I have hit paradise.
I am telling you I had such a WONDERFUL birthday and it really made me feel so good...It really took so much out of me to leave the house...but it was so very worth it...and having my son here was a great incentive.
My son left late late thursday night....he had to get back because he has to be at work early saturday morning...He got to drive his car back...we had it here...so I just hope he drives carefully...but he is a very safe driver. When he hugged me good bye I could swear I heard my ribs crack...that boy is big and squeezes the breath out of you...LOL.
I hope he can come back soon for another visit...I really loved him being here. My other son called me last night to wish me a happy birthday and apologized for not being able to get here...he could not get off from work...but he told me to watch my mailbox because a surprise is on the way...he is too cute...he had me rolling on the phone... I really miss my boys...but it is so nice to know that they are doing well on their own.
Well I am getting tired again so I will end this here....but for all of you that sent me wishes....THANKS EVER SO MUCH...I so appreciate your kindness...it just added such joy to my day!!!!
Have a FABULOUS friday all...and hug someone you love!!!
