The post you've all been waiting for. First of all, I will NOT be 40 until Sunday the 26th but in order to throw me off, The Hubbs and my sister had a surprise birthday party for me this past Saturday. They really got me too. And guess what... I got what I wanted. Can you guess? Do you know what I've been wanting? I've only hinted about it all over blogland. A new digital camera!! No more fuzzy pics from that old cheezy thing I had before. Be ready folks - I'll be taking pictures like a mad woman. Bring on the challenges Badoozer!!!
In case you're wondering, this is a pic of my baby sister and me after church yesterday - we were messing around with the camera. Also, if you're wondering again, yes we come from the same parents. I look like dad and she and my brother look like mom - Italian.
I wish I had time to give you all the details about how The Hubbs plotted and schemed to get me to my sister's house all the while I was making it very difficult on him. The HubbaKids weren't cooperating, I was in rare form and ready to forget taking the kids to my sister's and going to a "movie".
Me: "Forget it! He's punished!"
Hubbs: "What's going on now?"
Me: "He didn't want me to do his hair and he threw a fit."
Hubbs: "Come on, we've got three minutes to get in the car."
HubbaDette: "I want to take my baby."
HubbaDood: "I don't want to wear a coat!"
Me: "Just get in the car!"
Hubbs: "Have you got the keys?"
Me: "I didn't drive the car last?"
HubbaDood: "Can we watch a movie on the way there?"
Me: "No. Get in the car!"
HubbaDood: "What?!" rolling eyes.
HubbaDette: "I want to get in by myself!"
Hubbs: "Where are the keys?"
HubbaDette: "LET ME DO IT!!"
Me: "We don't have time hunny."
HubbaDood: "My seatbelt won't work!"
Me: "Calm down and unlock it."
Hubbs: "Is everyone in yet?"
Me: "I think so. We've got two minutes to spare, let's go."
For the record, I do NOT dress like this! The scarf was a gift my mom made, the black thing on my sweater was a "40" pin and the flower was off one of my packages - I thought it would be funny to wear - HubbaDette liked it. Behind me is a collage my sister made of the pictures she has of me growing up (I have most of the family pictures so it wasn't easy for her).
I still have a few more days of life in my 30s and then it's off to 40land. Can't wait to see what the next ten years have in store.
