Birthday summary

Well, I'm 30 years old now. It finally happened. I think it was a surprise because I never actually imagined myself in my 30s...that always seemed so OLD. And now I'm 30 - so it can't be too old, right? That's what I'm telling myself - so run with it. ;o) Here are some photos from yesterday:

My sweet family let me sleep in and then we had whole wheat crepes with strawberries and cool whip (south beach worthy...) and I weighed also - lost 5 pounds this past week, which is 8 total in the past 2 weeks! (Woo-hoo!) Then it was present time! My family gave me a happy birthday balloon, some flowers, a vegetable brush, a shoe rack, a new cd player (both of ours were on the fritz) and a tomtom! Then we spent time as a family playing dr. mario until we went out with our friends to Chili's for dinner, followed by some Graeter's, then we played my favorite game of all time with our previously mentioned friends - it was a GREAT day! It almost made turning 30 completely painless! ;o)

Today I had my voice lessons - which went really well. There is a talent show on-base this month and I'd like to sing "Song to the Moon" from the opera Rusalka. The song is in czech which is more difficult to memorize than I'd thought - I'm sure after I practice it more often (which I'm planning to do) that I'll get it. However, finding an accompanist is more difficult since it has 6 flats. Glittersmama - where are you? If you're not busy on september 24th...I wouldn't mind if you came back to ohio. Really, I wouldn't mind that. Really.

Happy Belated Birthday!!!

I didn't know you called... Did you call the 419 area code number or the 937 one? The 419 is my cell number. But, if you don't happen to have our number here it's 937-938-1440.

We'll be home this weekend. This Saturday I'm going to the Bishop's Storage House and canning a lot of things!!! So, we'll be busy that day. But other than that we are free. I'm not sure when Rob plans on visiting his sister at the Hospital. right now it's only Immediate family, so i may have to babysit Jeremiah while they go visit her... But, just call and i'll let ya know if we are busy or not.

I would love to visit with you guys!!

Whoa... you're so old! I'm glad it wasn't too bad. I guess 30 is just at the TOP of the hill. You're not really over the hill until you turn 31 right? Alex just turned 31, so I was teasing him about that.
