'Nother done

So another year has passed for me. I have to say on-line and off-line friends had made it one of the best I've had in a long while, especially the week leading up to Sunday. I had some of the very best presents...

Hubs took me to Borders to pick out a book for my b-day present. I managed to weasel two which he said one was from him, the other was from the boys. I got Roxanne St. Claire's latest Now You Die and Shayla Black's latest book (I couldn't resist!)

My friend Keeshe wrote me a fun fanfic between myself and my favorite character in the Dark-Hunter series (Dev Peltier). It's posted on here. While reading it, I had a HUGE smile on my face and giggled at some parts.

The next day or perhaps the day after I was surprised with yet another fanfic written for my birthday between myself and Dev. This one from my dark-hunter chat cronie and friend Stormee. Pfft, DO NOT LET HER LIE AND SAY SHE'S NOT A GOOD WRITER!! Again, I had this large smile on my face and giggled at parts.

I had LOTS of b-day wishes. Just wanted to say to those who gave me wishes a big and heartfelt THANK YOU! Each and every one of them brought smiles to my face.

The night before "the day" I was in the dark-hunter chat with Alex and the rest of the crew. Alex let chat stay open for a half hour more in honor of my b-day! When it struck midnight she was the very first to wish me a happy birthday. Now that just rocked!

I got woken by a call by my mother to wish me a happy birthday. This year she didn't send me a card and money because times are rough for her. She's only working three days a week at her job while the rest of the time she's taking care of my grandfather who is temporary staying with her.

To those who don't know, my grandfather has Alzheimers and he's a handful. I really don't know how she and my step father handles it. He's very needy and can't do anything himself. So you can imagine the stress and rough time she's having. But I was glad she gave me a call. Then she grilled me about the move.

Then Joann called me, from work, to sing me happy birthday. Of course there had to be something to dampen the day. The soon to be ex-landlord hunted down the husband at his parents. He and his step dad were building something for me to give to my friend for her b-day/christmas gift.

Literally the ass started harrassing him when the hubs and his father put the jerk into his place. So we're renting a Uhaul truck to get the rest out of the place, putting in Mike's garage until our new place is ready for us. I want to completely wash my hands of the ass. I do hope karma turns around and bites him hard on the ass. He deserves it.

And no, I really did not hear any well wishes from my in laws. I was at the mother in laws briefly, but that's okay. You know I'm use to it. They'll make a big production of the hubs on the 16th and go "Oh I didn't know it was her b-day the seventh" or "I completely forgot it was her b-day the seventh" when they remember their daughter's husband's b-day the fourth. *shrugs*

The hubs took me to Applebees for my b-day dinner. The man was smart and DID NOT TELL THE WAITRESS IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY! I went to the bathroom, came back to clapping. I was like "Oh he better not". The look I gave him if he did seared. But he didn't (thank the goddess), it was for an eighteen year old's b-day.

My cake was one of those strawberry cheesecake in a shooter glass.

Today I had an art friend asked if I wanted a b-day drawing. Aww wasn't that sweet.
