I'm recovering, though my head and shoulders are still aching. Both are feeling better - I'll be glad when they no longer hurt at all!
Last night, Anne took me out to celebrate my birthday - which is today. : ) She took me to see "Mamma Mia" at the Pantages Theater. We both LOVED the show - it was wonderful, beautifully done, and a great, fun story! We had great seats, and before the show, I told her that she should not have spent so much money on me for my birthday - things have been tight for her lately, and I want her to be able to make ends meet! She told me that she decided that it was worth it to do up my birthday right because she felt she'd never been able to show me how much our friendship has meant to her, how I've always been there for her when she needed me, and this was a small way for her to show her gratitude. I told her to shut up because I was starting to cry! lol - now if that isn't like sisters, what is? Our friendship means the world to both of us, and neither of us have ever had other girlfriends who meant *quite* the same thing to each other. We both knew the minute we met that our friendship was something special, and we suspect that when we're little old ladies we'll live next door to each other and keep each other company. And we know that no matter what men may come (and go!) out of our lives, we're there for each other through thick and thin and all the soy ice cream we need to get through it!
So now I'm back at work, working the first 8 1/2 hours of my birthday, then heading home to go to sleep. Then I'll get up and go to acting class. I made some stew day before yesterday with ground lamb, onion, and sweet potato, and had some of that before coming to work tonight, and I've got some for lunch, too. And since it's my birthday, I bought some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies on the way to work, and I'm snacking on those tonight, too. And I plan on having Starbucks today, too, probably before or after acting class. And FWIW, I'm 36 now.
And hey! Just read Jennifer's blog, and today is HER birthday, too! Two of us bloggers with the same birthday! (She's 29 today, though!) Happy Birthday, Jennifer!
