Regardless, it was a great day. Hubby is in Chicago, but he left me a card under my pillow (isn't he sweet). Molly gave me a BIG bar of dark chocolate and my kids left me sweet little notes all over the house, too.
Then the kids took me out to Culver's for lunch - I drove and they assured me Dad would pick up the tab :-) I then had a birthday run/walk to try to burn off all those calories I consumed at Culver's. It started out as a run, but since I don't really jog on a regular basis I didn't get too far. So, it turned into a sort of interval training :-) Run a little, walk, run a little, walk, walk...
Unfortunately, while I was away I missed my friend Tami, who stopped by to drop of the most hysterical birthday card and a candy dish full of my favorite candy :-)
I ended my very special day by taking Evan to the doctor where he was diagnosed with pneumonia. Not the greatest ending to a day, but at least I got to spend time with my eldest son :-)
And so, it was a good day!
