Well, That Didn't Hurt

So turning 30 wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I didn't have a meltdown like I did when I turned 25.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by with well wishes!

Sweety built a great dinner of steak and shrimp. I'm still stuffed like a tick and I tossed allotta wine on top of dinner. Yummy stuff.

Today was the first day of school and both boys came home with HUGE lists of school supplies that are needed in addition to the stuff that we were told to buy before school started.

When I was a kid, we just needed pencils, crayons and paper. AND we had to walk to school - uphill both ways and in the snow.

Just for the record, public schools in Florida suck. It's just too damn crowded. I am so glad that I went to a tiny school where you had the same kids in class with you for 12 years and all of the teachers knew who you were.

Good Night.

Chickie glad you had a nice birthday. I am amazed at the crap parents are asked to buy also. We only had to take a few boxes of cookies for snack time! I went to school with the same people from 6th-12th grade and it was awesome.

Joey Polanski - So what's your youthful secret?

L - Now that you mention it, I can see where 31 could be hard.

Velma - Thank you!

Bo Snagley - Thanks! Me too!

Patti_Cake - The boys have class with some kids that they've been with before so that's cool for them. I like going through my K-12 yearbooks and seeing the same faces!
