Happy Birthday to Me :))

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, me, me, me, me, me, me.....

That's right folks.  It's all about me today.  I told Lou last Friday that the entire weekend was about me so he needed to do everything I told that worked.  But it was a good weekend.

We attended a party at the Crawford Auto Museum.  It was for the research institute where I work.  Dinner, dancing, and antique cars...which were really cool.  They had one that went around the world in 1910...48,600 miles and 100 years old and it still runs. 

Sunday we went to Mom's for dinner.  Except for my sister, the whole family was there.  It was nice to get together.... until the discussion turned to politics.  I have one brother whose political views are diametrically opposed to mine.  I think he enjoys saying things that he knows is going to get a rise out me.  It bothers me that he does this.  It's to the point where I'm uncomfortable being around him.  It seems like he has so much animosity for me....and that hurts.  But enough of that....

So I left work early today and now I have to clean the house....YES....I have to clean the house on my birthday.  Tomorrow night we are going out to Farenheit's to a wine tasting dinner.  The wines are from Australia...Penfolds Wine.  The winery was started in the mid-1800's by a physician who had emigrated to Australia.  He believed in the medical benefits of wine...YEAH....don't we all.  I know I drink it for the medical least I will be tomorrow night. 

Lou gave me an I-pod Touch for my birthday.  It's my first piece of Apple equipment.  I bought myself a new laptop...a Dell Studio 15.  I'm still a PC girl.  My other one was 5 years old and giving me problems so it was time.  This one is soooo fast, it's amazing.  And it is I just need to get the cable company out here to give me a wireless connection to the internet.  I have a husband who works in IT , but we are so behind the times in our own home....but we'll get there.

Later ....time to eat some birthday cake....and clean the house.

Are we related, because that sounds like my brother? You're right, it hurts but he's the one with the issues. Happy Birthday!

You probably don't know it yet, but you are about to fall in love. I promise, the Ipod will change your life. I'm not kidding. Love you!

PS. Happy Birthday again, sweetie! I have an excellent present for you, but I decided to save it for when I see you in a few days.

You don't need the cable company to give you wireless.. if you already have a connection, just attach a wireless router to your DSL or cablemodem box. You can get a decent one for under $100. Your IT husband should be able to set it up! :)

Happy birthday!
