Birthday MONTH: Day 27


I know it's been almost a month now so don't take this question personal. If you are anything like me, then you have a short term memory due to work, family, hobbies, life, etc ;)

The question is: Do you remember these?

The answer is: These are the 7 gifts that my sister Karen mailed to me for my birthday on October 1st.

Well, look at them good because I opened the LAST one yesterday. I am so sad. I am going through gift withdrawals. I have no more beautiful presents to open from my sister. My floor is now empty.

{I'm starting to sweat & shake}

I think I need therapy. I wonder if my insurance will cover that. I forgot what my deductible is. Maybe it would be best if I...Am I typing out loud? Oh dear...I'm so sorry! ;)

Let me share this LAST of the 7 presents with you...

Well, it can't be so bad, can it? I mean, all good things have to come to an end, right?

For instance, Halloween is at the end of my Birthday MONTH. Christmas is at the end of the year...

Ok. I'm starting to feel better. Opening presents is good therapy ;)

And knowing that my favorite holiday is only a couple of days away is so exciting!

{my heart rate is back up}

I LOVE my little vintage reproduction calendars and those bats! oh...look how cute, it's a spooky headband!!!

I still have the shakes from my withdrawals so let me lay this down on the floor so you can see the beautiful feathers.

While you are admiring my LAST present, I'm going to eat some of that chocolate she sent to help my blood sugar ;)

ummmm. yummmmy. lick fingers. smack lips. roll up the paper. rub hands together. lick the roof of my mouth. I'm done.

Oh I feel so much better now. I think I'm coming to terms that ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END. And thus, my Birthday MONTH is almost over.

I've learned a few things from writing this post today:

  • Journaling IS therapy.
  • Receiving is good but Giving is better.
  • I love Ghiradelli chocolates.
  • I still have a few more presents to open so I'm not going to worry about finding a therapist right at this moment ;)
  • Reading your comments and knowing you visit me often is a present in itself!

See ya tomorrow!


I want to wish my new friend Lee of Inspired Comblogulations a very Happy Birthday!!! Don't you just love her blog name? She's a hoot. You really need to read her post from yesterday...it's awesome! While you are there, be sure and wish her a Happy fiffffff something birthday!

Whoops, almost forgot that felt heart! DARLING!

It seems that the consensus is you need to show up sporting the headband. Everyone is gonna have major withdrawals if you don't figure out a theme for November. :) Happy 27th day of the birthday month! Tammy

P.S. I recycle, but have never saved the cereal boxes. Now that I can make gift totes from them, and use them as tags, I will never get rid of another Cheerios box! All the best, :) Tammy

Sares said...

Almost out of presents? Girl, you have been SO deprived! What's with all these people, don't they know you need a bigger stockpile! Hopefully next year they will do better, LOL!

Awe thanks, your so sweet. I have asked you several times what is the actual date or did I just ask once and think about it several times.

My son is taking us out for Mexican food tonight. That means "tekillya" a little salt on the rim. Ole"

Did you tell me the date of your birth dear child and my mind is slipping at fifff... I still can't say it.

Happy Birthday once again... I guess this way I can say it on every post.

I bet you didn't get anything from aarp did ya. Didn't think so. You got real presents, not senior discounts. Oh, ca-sa-ra-sa-ra...
Off to tortilla land... yum

What is up with you? Go ahead and find the therapist. When one receives a headband, one puts it on their head, not the floor. What, are you crazy? Happy Birthday Month! ~Mindy

It doesn't have to come to a total end...In 2 weeks we can sit and toast our October birthdays together...Can't wait to see you!

Happy 27th day of your birthday Month, dear Jodie.

I loved seeing some more of your gifts.
Now let's see you do a twirl with the headband on.

Happy Birthday Year Jodie!
I see you loved all of your gifts from me!!! :)
They can't reflect though how much I love you!!!
Take care of yourself, and enjoy each 'giftless' day!!! Every day brings its own graces and gifts from above and within!!! Gifts that can't be bought!!!
I love you dear sister!!!
