May 13th 1974

My Mother informed me that 34 years ago today, we were having a heat wave. So hot that when she came home from the hospital with me, my father had to put the window air conditioners into the apartment windows. And they didn't work. Here I was a newborn, my mother's first and it was HOT!
Today I will be home enjoying my day with both my kids. My oldest is home with some very bizarre hives, and is thrilled to spend the day Bass fishing on the play station.
My Husband won't be home until late tonight, so to celebrate my Birthday my mom and sister are going to come down, bringing with them, my favorite Indian food.
I don't feel any older. 34 is 34.

Momo: Thanks Dahling!! Actually, I HATE cake. There are very few kinds that I like, and they're not your typical cake. Flourless Chocolate, Ice cream cake, my own award winning cheesecake....that's about it. So, no. It's too much work. LOL:) Hope you had a great weekend!!

Meleah: SOON, Very SOON, I think we need to have that toast in person! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. So far, It's been a great day!!

Look at it this way.. Next year will be my 30th and your 35th and you get to watch me jump out of a plain and we get to have the (well..close to the) BEST party of the year. I think we need to throw a seporate one. I'll book it. LOVE YOU!

WHOOPS!!! PLANE!! (god I'm a dumbass)

Earlene Hofer said...

I don't remember eating Indian food. Sounds good though. Happy Birthday. Thank God for Grandmas.

chefmom said...

TbOTMOTE: WOW! YOu are smart!! I'd love to see you jump out of a "plain" and yes, we can have "seporate" parties, because mine will be better.

Earlene: Indian food is fantastic! Everybody assumes it's all curry, and spicy and it's not. There's such a huge variety of sauces and foods. LOVE IT!! And yes, Thank God for Grandmas! My kids are very lucky to have such a wonderful one, as am I to have such a great Mom. I seem to think the Pea Flock are very lucky too ;)

omg~ Happy Birthday!! I'm so jealous you are younger than me by a whole ONE year, heh.
My mom brought me home in Panama so tell your mom to quit whining, she doesn't know what hot is- LMAO. Ok, please don't don't tell your mother that. It is much too close to Mother's Day to be snarky. Now make me some of that award winning cheesecake woman! ;-)
