Stopped freaking out quite so badly about my age.

Ended a job I loved, then liked, then hated.

Started a new job I could happily retire in.

Lost some friends, and gained some.

Learned how to walk on crutches.

Wrote 348 journal entries.

Forgot my wedding anniversary.

Made a tough and major decision to give up my Editor position, at least temporarily, for the AWC.

Finished a productive year as Poetry Section Editor for Mosaic Minds.

Gotten my hopes way, way up, only to have them crushed completely.

Gotten really, really angry.

Been really, really happy.

Learned that I can only do so much. Much to my chagrin.

Traveled twice to Germany, once to the States, and once to Holland.

Read 104 books.

Read 843,423,948,294,839,029,042 blog and journal entries.

Parented badly, decently and pretty darn well, sometimes all in the same day!

Ate 4,242 pieces of sushi. At least. Not all in the same day.

Updated my family website. Once. It counts!

Absolutely boggled at the number of people who want to read my daily drivel.

And plenty of other things that I can't remember right now, because JAYSUS AM I OLD AND SENILE. baha!

Hugs and kisses to all of you who called, left messages, sent emails and ecards, posted hilarious and lovely photos and greetings and comments wishing me a Happy Birthday. Thanks to my family, and to you, it was. :)

Mike just turned his computer off, but wanted me to tell you that was him. We had another user hanging around the house this weekend, so we have had a hard time staying logged into LJ.

Happy birthday!

Happiest Birthday Wishes!!!

oh Lizardek-- you are too extraordinary and I am so in awe of all you accomplish! Big hugs and kisses to you and sending you lots of happy birthday wishes. ~bluepoppy

Re: Happiest Birthday Wishes!!!

Thank you muchly, darling BP. :) And you notice I didn't add a line about "created 8,442 to-do lists" or "thwacked 8,442 things OFF my to-do lists"! :P


O... you could give a girl a little warning before you spring a birthday on her, you know? I have a very special birthday card for you (honestly I do... I bought it in NYC) and I was all intending to get it out to Sweden for your next B-day, but I was labouring under the obviously much mistaken impression that your b-day was in October. I don't now where I go that idea, because obviously... you're a Leo thru and thru... so I guess i'll just have to ship it to you belatedly. Act surprised when you get it!!!

Happy Birthday, darling Elizabeth. May all the sunshine and warmth you spread across the web be revisited upon you ten times over in the coming year and may your every bliss come true. I adore you!

Adoringly always, Wee xoxox

I WILL be surprised! because when it some, my ancient rabbit-riddled brain will have forgotten all about it :D


Aw jeez, sorry I'm late with the wishes. (It's the JOB, I tell ya...this damn work stuff gets in the way of blog time.) HOPE IT WAS HAPPY...and better yet, hope it's a FABULOUS year! ~Marilyn xoxo

I know! The blogging is really suffering because of this work thing. :P Thanks for the wishes, however belated :)
