Well, my Birthday continues. Friday as you all know, I turned 40. Jen said she was going to take me out to dinner and Taya would spend the night at Ann's. So that is what I planned. The boys came home from school and all wanted to go to Ann's- she lives next door- next door in the country is 10 acres away- but still next door. I did not think this was too weird because Ann's kids and my kids play all the time. I told them to behave since they were all going over there.
So, I got Taya bathed and ready, packed her over night bag and Jen said we were leaving at 6:15 because Ann's son got a new puppy and I wanted to see her. On the way over Jen stopped to see if the llamas needed water- I thought it was an odd time to check- but whatever.
When we got to Ann's, I walked in like I always do- and SURPRISE! There was a house full of friends. I had no idea. She was checking the llama water because that was the signal we were on our way- the kids wanted to go over there to help decorate! They got me. I usually have a clue about things- but I really thought we were going to dinner and that Taya was spending the night. I packed her bag for nothing.
I had a great night- got to see some friends I had not seen in awhile, got to be with my great kids and my wonderful husband. Thanks Jen and Ann for a great Birthday- I love you guys.
Oh, and still no puppies- but she is miserable.
