Awwwww! Thanks, Everyone! I woke up this morning to a quiet house (the kittens were all still sleeping as was Maury) and just sat at the kitchen table watching the sun rise over the field ... while I know the sun rises ~every~ morning, I always choose to believe it does so just for me on this day. I am still waiting for the coffee to brew - I picked Cinnamon Hazelnut flavored coffee this morning, Maury can just get over it - and I have a pan of "Breakfast Casserole" waiting for the oven to pre-heat.
Maury gave me my presents last night because he always tries to make Christmas and my birthday two special days ... he is such a considerate man. I use my cell phone a LOT not only for my job but also because ... well ... everybody has my cell number it seems! So, he gave me a car charger for it, one of those nifty "hands-free" headset thingies and a new case that clips on ... and he also gave me a box of my very favorite Russell Stover candy - Cherry Blimps! We watched a movie (The Immortal - it sucked) and played Def Jam on the X-Box. He asked if I wanted to go out to dinner, but the only place I could think of I wanted to have dinner this year was the captain's table and of course, that would involve being on a cruise ship so that was sort of out of the running. *grin* Maybe next year.
Today's plan is to have a quiet, relaxing, do-nothing sort of day. We are supposed to go to my mom's house later on this afternoon but until then, my butt is planted firmly in the recliner with a blankie and the babies, dozing and reading.
Thanks everyone for the Birthday wishes and for the Christmas cheer!
Merry Christmas to ALL!
