So, today I turned 68. I have trying to figure out why 68 suddenly sounds so much older than 67. I guess it is because I am now closer to 70 than 65. Whatever! At least I don't feel any older.
Most of the day was pretty much a standard Saturday. I had several loads of laundry and a few other odds and ends, but I admit that I didn't bother really doing any serious cleaning. After all, it is my birthday! Bill was gone part of the day doing some errands, so I was either working on laundry or doing things on the computer.
In the afternoon, I decided I was really tired, so I took a nice nap. Well, I read in bed for a bit before I fell asleep. That really made me feel like I was pampering myself.
We met Lisa and family at Knni House at 5:00 to have dinner. Japanese steakhouses are always fun and the kids were really excited, too. And, as always, it was delicious. We had a good chef so he made it fun, too. A few days ago, Ashby had said we should have fried rice for my birthday dinner so that is why we ended up there. And the fried rice was excellent - along with the shrimp, chicken, and filet mignon.
It has been a great birthday. I like low key and today was just about right. I got email cards and messages, texts, and FaceBook messages galore. I talked to my dad and brother on the phone. It is always nice to be remembered!
