Today is my birthday! Since I got back from Europe late last night I am pretty tired and jet-lagged today (I will write about the whole trip soon once I get to relax and rest up.) We picked up my dogs early this morning (at 8 am), we had lunch at the local dinner - I think we are now the talk of the town since several people kept talking about our trip - and then we made a quick trip to the market. There was a lot of mail (since we had it on hold for about 2 weeks) and I got several cards. I also got many birthday wishes on Facebook.
I knew this year would be pretty low-key and was fine with that. I do wish I got more birthday cards though - I suppose some could still be on their way as several are coming internationally. I think getting a card is even more fun than getting a present although I would not turn down a present either. I say that every year, but it's true.
My parents gave me a really cool camera for my birthday - they gave it to me early so I could use it on the trip and I took lots of great pictures. That has to be the best present I got (although the trip is up there too.)
