It was a very good day

I had a wonderful birthday yesterday! It was awesome! A big THANK YOU to everyone who wished me happy birthday. There were a lot of you! I feel so loved. :o)

Among my birthday presents were...

PataPri towels from Amy! These are the best towels in the universe!

"Alice" book from France from Stina! I collect copies of "Alice in Wonderland" and have many books, including some from other countries. Now I have another for my collection! (So if you go on vacation somewhere PLEASE get me a copy of "Alice" and I will love you forever.) The illustrations in this one are beautiful!

A knife set and other smaller goodies from my mom. Thank you, Mom!

My surgery yesterday went well. I took my lorazepam beforehand and it SUCKED. It was the first time I'd ever taken any sort of pill like that and I didn't like it. I told Jonathan that I felt defeated. I totally did not feel like me and I was kinda dumb. I was so glad when the pill was out of my system. The surgery itself was fine. It was definitely uncomfortable but was over fast. We went home and I took a 2.5 hour long nap. Wow! I don't know if that was because of the pill or if I was just needing sleep, but I was conked out. And during the time I slept Jonathan cleaned the apartment! I was so impressed. :o)

We ate leftover broccoli, cauliflower, and cheddar soup for dinner and then ice cream bars for dessert. We started watching a NatGeo show about ancient Greece, but we both ended up nodding off during it, so we went to bed early. It was a pretty gosh darn awesome birthday.

And now it's Thursday morning and I don't have to work today. I've been sitting on the couch with a cup of Kona and Halo Cat snuggled up next to me. Today's goals are to pack for Ketchikan, do laundry, and update the coffee shop's Big Cartel store. I need to put our new coffee of the month in it, Congo Kivu Mokele-Mbembe. Should be a pretty awesome day. :o)
