Best. Birthday. Evah.

Or at least one of them, anyway.

It started out poorly. I was hoping to make a good impression on my new client's dad. However, the kid decided to throw a full blown screaming hissy for 20 minutes. I tried everything, but he just finally had to wind himself down, and by the end he and I were having a pretty good time. Of course, he cried when he had to leave.


But then...

A sweet co-worker brought me a pretty vase of flowers.

B saw me at lunch and told me he had picked out some diamonds for the new ring he was making me as a replacement for the diamond ring I lost at Christmas (my engagement ring lost its stone). Also, he had a pretty peridot stone necklace for me "so I would have something to open today."

I went out to dinner with some friends. They didn't know it was my birthday. When one of them wished that someone had a birthday so we could get a singer, I mentioned that I did have one, in fact, today. So we had an operatic singer sing me Happy Birthday in Italian, and my friends picked up the dinner tab.

When I got home, my son's friends were playing D and D with my husband. He had the ring already made up for me! It was gorgeous! (Still is!) Then my son's friends gathered in the kitchen, stuck a couple of sparklers in zuchinni bread (closest thing to cake I can eat) and sang Happy Birthday...complete with awkward pause when they got to the "Happy Birthday, dear...insert name here"

What a great day!

    For some reason, all the kids are getting out early, even though there is no ice on the ground yet. All of my clients except one canceled (all are…
