I was 45 minutes late to work this morning as I slept in, just a little, and then took forever to get ready, long, long hot shower and all. Now I am at work, not working, checking emails and birthday wishes. I smell great, my hair looks good and I am inappropriately dressed for the today's weather but I care not, cuteness wins out on birthdays. Am wearing: fitted white t-shirt, jean jacket, pretty bird necklace that Holly gave me for my b-day, low-heeled brown platform sandals and a pretty 50s style Mexican peasant skirt in brown with pink ribbon trim and multi-colored flowers embroidered all up the left side that Jami gave me for my b-day. It's a whole birthday present outfit! Hooray! I also got a cute bracelet and an awesome t-shirt from miss Mara, and some Amazon monies from Jed & Brad. So far, perfect princess day! Hooray! Now I just have to stop thinking about myself long enough to get some work done then go work my butt off tonight at the restaurant, as it is Dine Out for Nashville Cares night where lots of people go out and eat and restaurant give part of their sales to Nashville Cares, a community-based AIDS service organization. Which I happy to participate in, and glad of, but couldn't they have made it be a NOT busy night on my birthday. Alas, it will be fun, surely, and T-Rider gets back today so hopefully I will get to see him for a minute too.
