The Traveling Birthday Party

As you have noticed by now, my birthday month is a Palooza and I love to celebrate. There are many ways to celebrate without getting gifts.

How about sending your own mother flowers to thank her for giving you life?

Pay for the order behind you in the drive-thru line.

Eat lots of cake, even if you have to buy it yourself!!

I may or may not have done that...several times.

Go have a fun lunch somewhere...even if you make a sandwich at home...take it to the park or like me, sit in the parking lot of Target and gaze at the sign.

Treat yourself to something special...a walk, a drive, a movie, a phone call to a friend, the Spa, a mani/pedi, get your hair done or buy a new pair of panties.
Just do something different that is just for your pleasure.

Try to actually get to shut the bathroom door when you go in there at least once during the day...instead of everyone crowding in there with you.

Never underestimate a bubble bath.

Smile often. It's your special day even if no one else notices.

Sponsor a giveaway on your blog.

On my special day, I am taking a drive, spending the night in a hotel, eating out, window gazing, laughing, and possibly taking a friend or two to dinner. That's just one day. I also plan to spend time with family and let them adore me and feed me more CAKE.

My needs are simple. I just want to make it a special day for someone else, too.

Do NOT remind yourself that you could possibly be closer to 100 than to 0.

DO remind your siblings that it is your birthday and they have forgotten AGAIN.

Sit down and make a list of people you love and their birthdays. Then when you are at Target, purchase a card and put it in a folder for later so you will have it when their big day comes around. Maybe stick some stamps in the folder, too.

Or send them an e-card. Or an e-mail. Or chocolate. And cookies. And a coke.

So, Peeps, today I am pounding the pavement, enjoying the sunshine, getting some exercise, going to the bathroom ALONE, eating out, having dessert, and a coke, and a big ole' whopping bubble bath.

I'm just enjoying my day with family and friends while keeping an eye out for any single, older bald guys. THAT'S what I want for my present. Oh, that and World Peace.
