and it was filled with surprises!
There was a card from Steven, one from mom, one from Mrs. Harper, a balloon with a Hobby Lobby gift card and truffles (not the yummo, delicious ones I'd requested but truffles nonetheless) in my chair this morning.
At school, there were lots of birthday greetings, yummy chicken salad and delicious frozen strawberry dessert, Mary Kay lotion and mini makeup brushes and a cupcake. There was also a voice mail of one of my parents singing Happy Birthday. There was an email from the First Place coordinator (a high school teacher), an email from my former First Place leader (head of food services), an email from my superintendent, a card from PTO (done by Stacy B.), a message on the faculty blackboard, a shout out on morning announcements, a few cards made by kids (one was a total surprise - left on my desk at the end of the day - didn't find it until the kids were all gone)
After school, there were the yummo truffles but they were stale so really not so yummo. :(
I knew Jenny was cooking supper but I didn't know that Stephanie, Rowdy and Rachael were there to eat it with us! I was sooooo surprised to see them! There was yummy steak and gravy and rice, veggies, garlic bread and sweet tea with chocolate cake and cream cheese frosting with Blue Bell ice cream. In the bag were a couple of "real" knives and a cookbook holder.
There was a call from Stephanie (little stinker!), a call from Rachael that I missed because I was talking to a parent, a text from Layne (I'd have texted him back but I've never sent a text before and am not real interested in learning now), a call from Robert that I missed when I left my phone at home while we were at Jenny's and a call from David.
A really awesome day in spite of the parent conference in the parking lot this afternoon and the call I had to make to explain the 50 something on a progress report. Turning 48 wasn't bad at all!
