My aunt Girt texted me about a week before my birthday to remind me that said birthday was on the weekend and wanted to know what were we going to do.
I knew that my aunts etc. would be out of contention for the a.m. because they go to church so I ended up going to breakfast with Chiquita, Patti and Jessica at one of my favorite restaurants, Rooster. Hell, it's everyone's favorite restaurant. Protip: if you're in town and plan to go to Rooster, call me first -- then let's agree to go at 9-ish when the wait won't be forever.
Chiquita says that I give very good gifts making it extra hard to find something for me. I decided to be more humane and presumptuous by taking out some of the guesswork. I made up a list of some things that I wanted.
My aunt Debbie texted me to say that she had forgotten to ask me about my wish list but she still gave it a try because she was out and about but when I told her what I wanted she laughed and said that she would just give me money.
A few of the items on my b-day wish list:
- Resuable Sandwich Bag
- Namaste Car Decal
- Bath Bomb
- Stylus Pen with Cute Print
Went home after yoga and ordered food from Everest Cafe. Took a shower then went to pick up the food then headed for a massage. I woke myself up a couple of times snoring during said massage. By the way, I highly recommend a birthday massage.
Got home and my aunt Girt pulled up almost at the same time that I did. The food was still lukewarm. If you could have seen the look on my mother and aunts' faces as I explained what I had gotten from Everest Cafe, you would have fallen out laughing or thought that it was an episode of Fear Factor.

At any rate, my new year got off to a great start...
