Yesterday was my birthday, and I'm celebrating by taking this week off! I had to go to Clearlake last weekend to clear out Grandma's house, so I felt I owed myself a break, and this was the perfect time.
Here's what I've done so far:
Monday I met with two goth friends and went thrift store shopping! We had a GREAT time, and found some awesome deals. I ended up with a black Punisher t-shirt, a red lace micromini skirt, a pair of red/black/white knee socks with skulls-and-crossbones on them, and a black shirt that's hard to describe but looks awesome; these are the things I can wear right away. I also found a black t-shirt with a cat head and "Me-ow!" on it, which I put in my closet in the "I-need-to-lose-5-to-10-pounds-first" section. Hey, you gotta have something to work towards, right?? ;-) And I spent less than $20 on all of it.
Tuesday was my birthday, woo-HOOO!! I started out by going shopping at my favorite grocery store, Trader Joe's, and dancing through the isles to the song "Witch Doctor". Then on to Jiffy Lube, where I gave my van a birthday present of an oil/fluid change, plus a new headlight (that I didn't know needed changing). After that, I headed for Kohl's, as I had COUPONS!! I found an awesome pair of boots, originally $79.99, that were on sale for $25. Using my $10-off b-day coupon and my 15% off coupon, I ended up paying only $13.86!! And that came of my b-day money, so I actually got them for free! Thanks, Mom! :-) From Martin, I got the DVD of the new Vin Diesel movie, Riddick. I am totally addicted to Riddick, heheheh... We'll be watching that later today. And then we had cake! Since Martin's birthday was Saturday and I was in Clearlake, we had the one cake for both of us (we usually do that, anyway).
Today is Wednesday. My son is coming over to hang out around 12:30 while his girlfriend is in class; when she gets out, we'll all go out to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant. I'll probably work in the garden as well, since it's really nice today.
Not sure what I'll be doing Thursday and Friday, but I'm sure I'll think of something! ;-)
What do you do to celebrate your birthday???
