A week in review...

Wow, it's been almost a week since I last blogged? Gee, how time flies!

I guess I've been kind of down these past few days, so I haven't written anything. Turning 42 for some reason has made me sad. I started to write an entry on my birthday, but couldn't find any happy words, so I erased it. It was snowing and I was working from home, so I guess I was kind of lonely. The combination of that really got me down. The ice cream from Cold Stone perked me up a little bit though!

On Friday I went and had the MRI on my knee. No results yet, it will take a few more days. They think it might be a torn meniscus. It doesn't hurt too much but I would like it healed so I can move on with my activities and not be in pain. I mean c'mon I have mountains to climb this summer! I told the doctor that and he laughed!

I did get to spend my Saturday shopping with a long stop at Archiver's - thanks to 2 very good friends who gave me gift cards!! Thanks Marlene and Moira! I didn't even spend it all, so I have a chance to go back!! (No, that doesn't make Dan happy!) I bought some basic supplies, including another scalloped oval punch to add to my collection! (I blame Toni for that collection!)

On Sunday I got a great gift from Toni - a 3 month subscription to Self Addressed, a Kit of the Month club! I can't wait to get the first one - it looks so cool!!! You rock Toni! Speaking of Ms. Toni, you should check out her blog today... she's got blog candy to give away!!! Maybe someone I know will get luckier than I do! And that leads me back to Monday where I got to spend lunch with Toni (and her wonderful kids)!!

Oh, back to Sunday - it was so beautiful here that we took a nice bike ride around the area! After the ride, we met the family at Three Margarita's for a birthday dinner! And then more Cold Stone ice cream for birthday cake! And I gave this card to my FIL since his birthday was 3 weeks ago and we missed it because we were in London.

So after a few days being 42, I'm alright with it now and ready to move on! Happy times are back!!

Great card for your FIL. And don't worry about 42, it gets better! I liked 50.

I've been so preoccupied - HAPPY BIRTHDAY a little late! Heck, 42 should be a piece of cake! Wait til you're closer to pushing 50 or are 50! Life gets better with age - just like wine!!! :)

I think i called you to wish you a Happy Birthday...but i don't remember...must be my advanced age. Next time you are feeling down about how "old" you are...ask yourself if you'd rather be the oldest in the family! Your loving 50 year old brother...ED (Isn't 42 the new 24???) Love ya...
