I have nothing to say here. Let’s just proceed!

After church we had a baby shower for our pastor and his wife – they’re expecting twins! The theme of the shower was books & they got a good haul. Also, the two cakes were adorable.
Meanwhile, Dr. M had a visit from the Roy.

Dr. M got me flowers for my birthday! Like everything else we do, he gave them to me just a bit early.

Our daffodils finally started blooming.
I wore (what I thought was) a cute outfit today & when my cousin had to cancel our after work walk I spent some time in the bathroom trying to get a picture to send her. Ha!

I had a second mammogram because they saw something suspicious on the first one. This is pretty much par for the course for me so I’ve stopped freaking out about it. Once again, there were no issues upon second review.
Dr. M put some of our daffodils into my birthday bouquet – pretty!

We went ahead & moved our calendars to March and I thought it would be funny to text Dr. M a picture of me kissing a sheep. Please excuse my freshly washed face and my goodness what is UP with those eyebrows!

We’ve been watching a lot of Carolina Hurricanes hockey (while impatiently waiting for baseball). They started a new fun ritual after a winning home game that they call the storm surge. Go here to see one of my favorites. This one is fun too. Anyway, some muckety muck called them a bunch of jerks for this celebration (because heaven forbid an athlete ever show that they’re happy to win a game). So we have embraced the bunch of jerks & long story short we have t-shirts.

I spent the day cleaning (with a brief break to visit with Daddy & Sue), and decided that I needed some flowers for the mantle. It’s been so much fun having our very own daffodils
Today was my birthday, but we got a call this morning that Dr. M’s brother was gravely ill in the hospital. We took his dad to the hospital for a visit, and actually left feeling a little less alarmed. He is in serious condition, and there is a big risk of blood clots, but there’s also a chance that he can pull through this crisis like he has so many others (beginning with rheumatic fever when he was 8 years old). So my day was spent with family, but a little more subdued than we had planned. I’m grateful for all my birthdays now!
