2014 Birthday!

20141220_183247My birthday was Saturday (Dec. 20). Yes, yes, it’s close to Christmas. You don’t have to tell me. Lots of people ask me if I feel “cheated” having a birthday only five days before “the biggest present day of the year.” The answer is no, I don’t. How can I feel cheated when I’ve never known anything else? It’s impossible to feel “Cheated” when you have no idea what it would be like to have a birthday in any other month!

My parents were great about making sure my birthday was a totally separate event from Christmas. I NEVER got a “birthday-Christmas” present from them!

And even my wedding anniversary is around now! Nov. 17! So all the “BIG EVENTS” of my life are bundled around the same time of the year. The only problem is WOW! Does my bank account take a hit this time of the year! LOL

As an adult now, my parents gave up giving me presents, especially given that I’ve been blessed with so much. It’s hard to buy for me. So they usually give me a very sweet card with cash. Same with Christmas. Nice card with cash. This year, I took both presents and bought myself a “Birthday-Christmas” present.

THIS is what i bought me!

So, basically, Santa and the birthday fairy has been to my house.

Have you written to Santa this year? What are you asking for?
