Thanks everyone! So far I have had a great birthday (I'm purposely blocking out memories of some truly horrible behavior at work--the kids, not me!). My sweetie gave me a beautiful necklace and earring set and the movie "Over the Hedge," and a friend gave me the 5th season of "Little House on the Prairie" on DVD. One of my students gave me some cologne and bath stuff, and one of the teachers got all the 4th graders to sing Happy Birthday to me in the cafeteria at lunch! LOL He said, "Should we ask how old you are?" Maybe he thought I would be embarrassed, but I just yelled out, "49!"
