I'm in a deep funk. I didn't want to get out of bed this entire weekend. It's not fun having a BDay in September these days. Feeling old. Feeling like my life is passing by and I haven't contributed anything of import to this world. Think I'm going to buy myself a big ol' chocolate cake and eat it by myself this evening. Whoooo hoooo.

Happy Birthday, Jill...

Happy Birthday anyway.

One of the benefits of hurricanes over earthquakes according to a good friend is that you can buy a gallon of ice cream before the storm hits, and when the power goes out there's no guilt in eating the whole thing by yourself.

Turn out the lights and tell yourself that you can't let that cake go to waste.

you're a baby! get to 55 and then talk to me about getting old!

happy bday, jill! couldn't run skippy w/o you!

Happy Birthday Jill and thanks for Birthday wish from your side. I knew you were a good egg and this just confirms it. I hit 59 on the 8th and next year is the big one. We'll have to remember to celebrate next year as well.

AW... hang in there, Jill! Hope you celebrated with something yummy...

WV: mmmmmn

Happy Birthday! You didn't tell the HH group Friday night, sneaky.

Found your blog looking for cookie ideas. My birthday was yesterday the 16th. Birthdays are never easy but I love this time of year. I feel alive more in fall than any other time. Happy birthday to you and happy birthday to me....My daughter lives in Houston. She made it through Ike and I have much to be thankful for. what's one more year anyway? And yeah get to be 58 that's 2 away from 60! Yikes!!!!
