Today Is My Big Day!!!

Happy Birthday, to MEeeee!!!

This is great!  I woke up before 4 am this morning, and I can say, I don't feel a day over 40!!!  This is great!

Okay, well I wasn't actually born 40 years ago yet-I have another 10 minutes to go!

Last night we took our kids to the Japanese restaurant for my birthday, but truthfully, because that particular experience is a treat for our family(a family of 5 eating out gets a bit costly, and the Japanese restaurant is NOT at the top of the to-do list when we need groceries), I really wanted to go for my children's sake-so they could enjoy this unique experience!

Have you ever been to a Japanese restaurant?  If not, it's a great treat!  You order your food, and the chef cooks it in front of you on a large grill, while doing tricks with the utinsels, and entertaining you with conversation, and giving you a chance to catch flying shrimp(they fling it with the spatula, you try to catch it with your mouth wide open)!  All 3 of the kids really enjoyed it.  :)

Oh!  I think I forgot to tell you all that Amber had a surprise birthday party for me on Saturday!  Dan, Dakota and I went to town for groceries, and due to a few small hints, I knew something was going on, but couldn't figure it out.  I thought Dan had bought something, and someone was bringing it to my house while we were gone, and putting it together.  I honestly did not expect to find a houseful of my closest friends here to celebrate with me!  It was a very nice surprise!

Well, I am NOW officially 40 years old, as it is now 6:16 am.  Dan is going to school with the kids, and Elissa is going to work, so guess what I am going to do to celebrate....

I am going to go back to bed!  I hope this waking up at 4 am doesn't become a habit-I have heard that older people have a harder time sleeping.  I hope it doesn't start the day you turn 40!

It's true about the harder time sleeping, but some older people seem to sleep almost all the time (at the dinner table, sitting in the living room, when you're talking to them, etc.)!! Happy birthday!

Thank you for visiting my blog. It sounds like you had as good a time as we did eating at a Japanese restaurant. Flying shrimp sounds more interesting than flying baby corn, but it was all good. Each of our dinners included two shrimp!
