Happy Birthday to ME!!

Today is my 29th birthday ... again! hee hee hee

I have already been told by my mom that she "read between the lines" from this post and has ordered me a subscription to Mark Lipinski's Quilter's Home. I am very excited and can't wait for the magazine to start meeting me at my mailbox!

I don't have a very specific plan for my day. I have to go to the BMV and get the tags for my car. I have decided to take myself to IHOP for breakfast. Yum! And then I am going to run to a friend's house to see her and take her a casserole since she had minor surgery yesterday. I hope to stop at my quilt shop because I get a birthday discount and I could get my backing for the Star and Nine patch quilt. I also have a couple of gifts to get for other quilters' birthdays. I would like to work a nap in at some point. And I have a date at 7. I am really not sure what I am the most excited about - shopping at the quilt shop or IHOP! ;)

My BIL came over last night with the kids and we worked on cutting up the carpet in the basement. We got everything cut up and took out the least wet pieces to the dumpster. We had to set up about 6 pieces so that they could drain more and I will have to carry those out today. I will also need to get a dehumidifier within the next couple of days because it feels really damp down there. I feel much better about the situation now that we got a lot of the crap out of the basement. A lot of stuff that I felt bad about throwing out before, but once it got wet it was not worth trying to clean it up. The next step will be putting everything back in it's place.

It was great playing with the kids a little. Ethan was sick earlier in the week and is feeling much better now. And Spencer wanted to make sure that I had something for them for Easter! Of course, I have great things for Claire and Spencer and I will need to get some 'rides' (cars) for Ethan. I guess stopping for that should be added to my list of things to do today.

Well, I better get to enjoying my day!
