It's my birthday!!

Today is my birthday! Which means, of course, that for the next 24 hours, I am, most definitely, the coolest person alive.;)

I love my birthday. Having a birthday 2 days after Christmas can be quite the downer. Over the years, I've gotten a lot of those — Merry Christmas/Happy Birthday gifts, which are super annoying. Not because it's only one present, but because it's apparently not important enough to separate. Grr. Growing up, my parents were really great at not combining the holidays for me, and allowing me to be the most important person on my birthday. If you have kids, or know anyone who has a birthday near Christmas, I highly recommend allowing them to be completely special. It helps.

Anyway, I am going to enjoy today as my own very special day, and spend the next 24 hours just being awesome.
