I have had an exciting week, and it isn’t even over 😀 St. Patrick’s Day happened, of course, which I spent with the Boy and his family. The next day was my sister’s 21st birthday, which included: her joining me in a bizarre therapy session where she received a drawn birthday cake and a pen; and our Mom teaching us how to play racquetball.
My birthday was yesterday. I woke up to a strained back that scared the crap out of me because it felt like an omen to remind me that in just a matter of time I’m (hopefully) going to get old and then die someday. Despite that, it actually turned into one of my favorite birthdays I’ve had. I got to spend it with a bunch of my favorite people…
Just some of those favorite people. I’m the one in red.
and I got to dress up…
and my mom made amazing cupcakes and shepherd’s pie for me…
Guinness chocolate cake with Irish cream frosting and Jameson chocolate ganache filling :9
and the Boy really outdid himself with being the best and sweetest…
I didn’t eat all of those waffles… but I did eat the difference in Toaster Scramblers >.>
and I got to use a bath bomb for the first time, which turned the water green and had a piece of paper in the middle that said “BANG”.
I accidentally ripped it trying to figure out what it was
The excitement continues this weekend as I head down to visit my best friend tonight so I can go to her bridal shower tomorrow and do maid-of-honor things. While waiting for the ok to head out for that, I took a couple of the dogs for a walk because Mom told me there was a little girl selling Kool-aid in the neighborhood.

Wore these guys right out, and gave me the opportunity to look ridiculous in front of a child who made more money today than I did, so that was great.
To update on the challenge, it has been hilariously unsuccessful so far. I’ve selected a handful of things to get rid of, but I’m about a week behind, which means I’m going to have to get rid of more penalty items. I suppose it’s for the best because I’ll get rid of more crap, but I really do need to catch up.
That’s all for now; hopefully the next time I check in I’ll have more of my ducks in a row (and ready to donate or throw away).
