Happy Birthday To Me

No wishes necessary.

I already got to pick a deer tick off of Baby's ass... and that was all the excitement I needed to feel fulfilled.

It's good to be here. My Dad is a very kind and loving grandfather. We've been swimming and hot tubbing and... apparently... ticking. I hope to post pictures of their amazing house (converted 1700s barn) and crazy bamboo forest (over 150 varieties) and exotic gardens and koi ponds and whatnot. A botanist used to own this house and it has a mysterious secret garden sort of feel. It's also psychotically dangerous as the entire property is steeper than a 45 degree angle and practically vertical with stone steps to climb and crack your head open on. Barn stairs are highly polished wood and only 5 inches deep and almost completely vertical. It's a horrific death trap. The kids love it. Baby is a *do- it-yourself-er* and so my dad, his wife, and I are pretty much on verge of cardiac arrest at all times.

That's all.

I don't have to clean or cook.

What more could I want?

Happy Birthday!
Great people are born on June 7th!
Including my daughter ;)

Glad to hear you are enjoying the not cooking / cleaning part, and it is so funny to watch grandparents worry about what "may" happen to the kids.

Enjoy!

Happy Birthday to you!
And today we signed a year's lease on our house, so I hope that my luck rubs off on you and you get the same shortly. Remember, if your broker is awful, change him/her!

And relax.

Have a great birthday. It's ideal: your gift is NOT cooking, NOT cleaning, and even time alone if you really wanted it!
