Happy Birthday To Me!
Today is my Birthday. I am not really a huge fans of birthdays. Mainly because I don't like being the center of attention. Plus, each birthday seems to bring a few more wrinkles, another pound or two to my posterior, and comments from my children about how I am now middle aged. (Cheeky Little Devils). I am trying to be more positive and gracious about Birthdays. I suppose that each birthday means that maybe I have gained a little more experience, a little more wisdom, and a little more gratitude. Maybe it just means I get to pick the flavor of the cake (and no I do not want a Barbie cake, Star Wars cake, Neon Funfetti cupcakes, or a Motorcycle Riding Up A Hill cake. Just a nice Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting will be fine), or that my children will refrain from from squabbling, or being cheeky for one day (or maybe not). There have been broadly dropped hints about fabulous (well thought out) presents by my Dear Hubby, and that has my intrigued! It really doesn't matter, it just makes my feel good that my family cares enough to hint about presents, and maybe a birthday dessert I don't have to make.
The best present of all, though, is that I now have 102 FABULOUS FOLLOWERS here at Tightwad Mom's. You all are the most wonderful Bloggy Friends a girl (middle aged or otherwise) could ask for! I consider you all great friends, and I ADORE reading your comments (So don't be shy! Let me know what you think!). Your comments are the high point of my day. Thank you all for becoming followers, so that I could reach my goal of 100 faithful readers by my Birthday. It really means a lot to me that you are all so willing take a minute out of your busy lives to stop by (some of you every day), and see what going on here at Tightwad Central! I hope that you all have found something here on my blog that has helped stretch your budget a little further. After all, "Tightwads of a feather, really should stick together!"
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!!
