    Just scraping in under the wire Laura! Happy Birthday! I couldn't wish it sooner because I spent the evening locked out of this site because I couldn't remember my password. Lucky you aren't old enough for these senior moments!

    I hate suffering from C.R.S (can't remember sht) lol
    I too have problems some days with my passwords flying straight outta my head. I've even gone so far as to take a pic on my phone when I do the initial signups to have my password and login right with me wherever I go.
    Now I just make note of them in my colornotes app on my phone and save it.

    Thanks everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes! Sorry it took me so long to get back to everyone.

    I had a wonderful lunch with my son who is home from college and my Dad. Later we had a wonderful dinner. I decided I wanted to eat dinner at home so I could control the salt and fat, and other additives so splurged on myself and bought porterhouse steak and made some favorite side dishes, fresh garden salad, corn on the cob, bake potato and kool aid punch! Very spring/summery meal! Picked up an ice cream cake for dessert. It was an absolutely wonderful birthday!

    Been a busy couple days because last night we celebrated our son's 19th birthday! Went to a local sushi restaurant that John picked. Had another wonderful time. Then back home for cards and chocolate cake.

    Thanks for the love and support. It really made my birthday so special to have you for friends!
