For those who didn't know, my 26th birthday was yesterday! A pretty uneventful age, I know, but birthdays are always fun. And with the invention of facebook comes tons of birthday wishes on your facebook wall - I love that! I am actually not very good at posting happy birthday messages for everyone else, so I probably need to get better at it if I want people to continue doing that for me. The day actually started off a little rocky, when I called my mom and she acted like it was just another day. I was thinking, "seriously? Am I in Sixteen Candles?" But soon enough she mentioned Valentine's Day being the day before and finally realized it was my birthday! The day got better though because my sweet co-wokers Dorothy and Jessica made me brownies and a birthday cake! And then after work it continued to get better.
When I got home from work yesterday, I was greeted by this:
Yea! Just what I wanted!!!
And with a cake from here:
Yea!! Also what I wanted!!
It definitely wasn't an extravagant birthday but the little things are what makes birthdays special to me!
No, unlike many local schools, the hospital did not close due to the snow. But, my sweet boss man was worried for my safety driving on the possibly icy roads so I got to scoot out early today after all my patients were seen. I have had such an unproductive wonderful afternoon! I came home from work and opened every single blind in the house (I figured it was ok this time since I was actually home to see if there were any lurkers peeking in my windows) so I could watch the snow falling. Being a southern Alabama-born girl that has never been snow-skiing, I have not seen much snow in my life. It was so pretty to see some snow on the ground! Then I proceeded to sit myself on the couch and, with the permission of my husband, ordered an On-Demand movie. I chose to watch The Proposal. It was a really cute movie - and funny too! The ending is rather predictable, but what girl doesn't love a good romantic comedy with a happy ending? Since the end of the movie I have been sitting on the couch watching TV and playing Super Mario Brothers for the Wii (which by the way, I am terrible at). The only times I have lifted myself off the couch were to take the dogs out and unload the dishwasher. I wish I could have a snow day every week!
So, it's been over a month since my last post! Sorry, I have been busy with work, cleaning our house, and just life in general. I have got to get motivated. It seems like every day when I get home from work I just want to sit and do nothing, and I end up falling asleep laying on the couch the entire evening!
Now onto the title of my post. Josh and I went to his mom's house for lunch yesterday, where I learned some interesting (disturbing, really) information. When Josh and I leave for work in the morning, we will usually open most of the blinds in our house to let the natural light in and also so that our dogs can look out the window during the day while we are gone. Well, I found out yesterday that Josh's aunt and uncle dropped by unexpectedly at our house in the middle of the day not too long ago. Obviously, Josh and I wouldn't be there because we both had to work, but nevertheless, they came anyway. And when they got there, they proceeded to walk around our entire house and peek in every single window!! All the while taunting Mordecai (whom they like to call Duricell for some reason) who was following them around the house and barking the entire time. Poor Tully, he was stuck barking in the crate and couldn't do anything about it. The best part about the whole story is that the aunt and uncle then called Josh's mom and told her we needed to close our blinds! Seriously? The intruders relatives that peeked into every window of our house while we weren't home are tying to give us advice on how to keep people from doing just what they did! Oh the irony. It was funny at the time but now it is kind of starting to freak me out. Maybe I will start closing the blinds from now on!
