Why do birthdays stick me with earwormy songs about time passing and aging? Last year I wrote about the things I had accomplished between the previous birthday and the one I was having, and I figure that's as good a way as any to end my nice day today :)

Passed my 3-year online journaling milestone a couple of days ago.

Celebrated my 10 year wedding anniversary.

Fulfilled a lifelong dream of traveling to Scotland.

Continued loveloveloving my job, even though it continually kicks my ass.

Sang at my baby brother's wedding.

Enthusiastically joined in with the wonderful Poetry Thursday crowd.

Had many mixed feelings...about mixed feelings, among other things.

Killed a cat.

Hosted my mom (twice!), my Aunt Judy, my sister and her family, and my good friends Kathey & Russell during the course of the year.

Sang in Globen with 3000 other choir members and Kjell Lönnä.

Bounced on a giant trampoline.

Didn't update a damn thing on my family homepage ALL YEAR except my booklist. But I DID, after all, read 102 books.

Ate 42,003 pieces of sushi.

Began receiving pages for a friendship book from lovely people all over the blogosphere.

Re-learned how much I enjoy canoeing.

Stole someone's lunch and admitted my criminal past to my daughter.

Allowed Tracey to shoot my children.

Partied with brief_therapy, thistimearound, shazzerlive, kejn, galestorm, natooke, idahoswede, reebert, studiozoe, knacke_brod, sandykins57, 1222, scubatoe_eimi, e11en, kachunknorge, blue_eyed_girl, jax_in_sweden, georgiamars, and probably at least 1 or 2 other people that I'm forgetting...I blame it on my advanced age, if so.

and cut the list short here because really, I packed a LOT of stuff into this last year.

Once again, hugs and kisses to all of you who called, left messages, sent cards and ecards, posted funny photos and greetings and comments wishing me a Happy Birthday. Thanks to my family, and to you, it was. :)
mood: happy

Frightening minutiae

Kind of frightens me that you know how much sushi you ate... LOL

Re: Frightening minutiae

My sister figured out that number translates to 115 pieces a day, so you can take it from me that I, um, exaggerated just a teeeeeeeny bit.

Happy Happy Birthday!

Thank you muchly! :)

It is now Aug. 10 here so I wish you an incredibly happy birthday, continuation of an already happy life, and loads of delicious cakes!

Thank you! I'll take those wishes! :) mmmm cake!


must be nice to be able to eat 115 pieces of sushi ad ay , every day, of the year! Wish I could have it only half as much!
Glad it was happy! Love your Seester. : )

Thanks for the singing phone message :) And did you do that math in your head?? :P

You counted!! your sushi???

Har! No, I made that up. :P


The happiest of birthdays to YOU!! I'm sorry that I'm late but you know, birthdays should last a good week, in my opinion. So celebrate all of this good life that you enjoy, and know you are loved!


You weren't at all late! :) Thank you, sweetie!

A little late Happy birthday.

thank you :)


oh my! I missed your b-day! But only by one day which is actually not too bad for me, given that i actually have a five year old christmas present for my bother all wrapped up and waiting patiently in the basement and four Christmas presents from 2005 that somehow never quite got mailed, tha I have invoices that are now over a month old and have not been sent out, and a pile of laundry that was intially dirtied during the Carter administration.

Happy Birthday, Liz. May the next year be filled with joy overflowing, laughter, health and the right amount of wealth. May it be filled to brimming with friendship and love, with all things good and shining and true. Happy, happy birthday my friend and many, many more!

with love, wee xoxo

Thank you for all the lovely wishes! :)

You ate that much sushi?!?!?

Happy belated birthday, Liz. I missed it. My Bad.

Heh. If you read the comments, you'll see my sister figured out that number broke down to 115 sushi pieces a I MIGHT have been exaggerating a weeeeeeee bit. :D

Sorry I'm late to the party, but sending you big HAPPY BIRTHDAY wishes!!! 102 books?! Dang.

(I'm presently wondering how I'm going to work like a demon at my job--6 to 7 hrs of overtime this week and it was only second week back--and still have time to read all the blogs I love when I don't have access to them at work...ACK! So forgive me for being late.)

No apologies necessary, I know, if anyone does, how real life screws up the blogging life! :) Thank you for the birthday wishes!
