Well, 38 came and went with only a little pain and suffering. It actually passed in a whirl of disinfectant and lots of laundry since Hannah came down with a stomach virus. We postponed any and all celebrating until the next weekend and held our collective breaths in the hopes that nothing else would go wrong.
And we made it! Mom made Sour Beef and Dumplings (my annual birthday dinner menu wish) and we devoured it amidst great company and a couple of good bottles of wine.
I can't list all the great gifts I received so my 3 fave gifts are: Mom's Dinner, The card from my MIL (the gifts were great too but the card was the best) and radiant floor heating in the Bathroom from my Hubby ( took 2 days to install but I now have warm tootsies in the morning).
So, 38 got off to a rocky start but its getting better already and it's only just begun.
