Another Birthday

Well, another year has passed. Some days, I feel a lot older than I am & some days I don't feel old enough to even be on my own. It's crazy, I know. So today was a pretty good day. I definitely feel loved. My hubby got up very early, so he could bring home Krispie Kreme donuts for me & the kids before going to work. My oldest friend, Jessica, wrote a very sweet blog for me this morning. A couple of my good friends brought me some very simple, thoughtful gifts. Thank you all...I really needed it. I also received several phone calls from friends & family with wishes for a happy birthday. Thanks so much. I really feel blessed to have so many people who care about me. Thank you.

Bryan & I even got to go out to dinner tonight...just like a real date! We had E, a YW from our ward babysit the 4 kids. She seemed to do great. The girls really liked her. I'm pretty sure Adam spent the entire time watching TV. (no big deal - at least he was good) Adelaide & Amelia rode with me to take E home. After dropping her off, Adelaide started to cry. Poor thing. I know part of it was that she was tired, but she really liked having E babysit. She bawled the WHOLE way home. I think we'll have to get her & her younger brother to sit for my kids & the Clark kids so we can double. Yes, I think that is an excellent idea.
