it was my birthday on wednesday. my family's been in town. i've had a truckload of reading to do for class. and i just never feel like blogging anymore. such is life.
wednesday brent decorated the office. it was lovely. except for the 8x11" pictures of me taped on balloons hanging from the ceiling. i probably could have done without that. but, you know. that's life.
wednesday afternoon i spent laying on a blanket in the park reading a book and eating chocolate covered strawberries. it was absolutely perfect. best birthday afternoon.
wednesday also meant class, which was rough. having a summer birthday, i've never spent my birthday at school. the whole time i just kept thinking "it's my birthday, dontcha know?! i shouldn't be here!!" but i was, in the basement with no cell phone service, no internet, and no crackers (gluten. i miss my crackers.).
but after that, malawi's pizza with bri and mom and dad. and then a sleepover with bri. i like sleeping next to my sister in a twin size bed. we fit. she's wonderful. i wish we could have sleepovers every day.
it was the most wonderful birthday, complete with packages from my best friends. on friday we had a steak birthday dinner at my sister's house. family birthday dinners are just marvelous. not sure why. i'm just a big fan.
typically, i don't like birthdays, although i do like gaining a year. i look like a twelve year old, so it's nice when people ask how old i am to not have to follow the number with a -teen. i've been looking forward to that for a long time. twenty years, to be exact. (that's an exaggeration. i have a distinct memory of sitting in the van with my best friend and her mom, discussing my excitement in turning ten. double digits was such a big deal.)
so, i'm twenty. hooray.
