A Gift Receiving Kind of Day

It’s Saturday so it was definitely a snooze button kind of morning.  I had high hopes of making it to the BMV before I met my BFF at the movies, I already said “had” didn’t I?  I don’t usually work on my birthday and I am off this Wednesday, but I hate to pay the state of Ohio on my actual birthday.  It looks like that will be the case this year.

We went to see the last of the Twilight movies, Breaking Dawn part 2 today.  I am not sure how I feel about the ‘twist’?  Without giving away any spoilers there really isn’t much to say.  I do feel that my emotions were messed with, I cried when it wasn’t necessary and I’m still kind of emotionally exhausted from it.  The ‘scene’ in question was not in the book, I was loud in my “oh my God!” and “what the hell? that was not in the book” I am hoping I didn’t actually say WTF like I was thinking out loud.  My daughter was watching it and thinking “oh we are so not buying this one!”  S.B. liked it the best out of all of them, me not so much.  I was always team Jasper (yes I made up my own team, he is adorable) and with that I am done on this topic.

After the movie S.B. gave me my early birthday present.presentsShe upcycled a hurricane lamp ( it was important that I have one) a sweet smelling Yankee candle and some Philosophy bubble bath, all in a very pretty owl box.  It’s always nice to get a present and today I got two 🙂

After the movie, I dropped my daughter off and went to meet my former boss out for a drink.  The girl one not the one I just posted about, although he did make an appearance.  It was good to see her and we usually go to lunch for my birthday but it’s early this year, the day before Thanksgiving is a very busy day so I received present number 2.This is very hard to see in this picture, but it is a candle on a canvas that has a light underneath.  She gave it to me and asked if I had any double A’s, my answer was K I am a single girl I have a lot of double A’s.  It is pretty cool and I have never seen anything like it, I wish my picture was better.  All I have to do is hit the switch on the side and I have a flickering candle, I hung it above my computer, where I would never put a real candle.

I didn’t get a lot accomplished today but I did spend the day with friends, and it is my oldest friends birthday today so I was able to talk to her and catch up.  I was a good day all the way around.  Everyday doesn’t have to be productive, right?

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.
