Yesterday was my birthday, and I enjoyed a positively lovely day of sleeping in, Mexican food, museum browsing, and decadent, four-layer chocolate cake. I didn't even need to make dinner as we're still surfing the wave of leftovers from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners. I received some awesome gifts, as well, including the 'Boy Mom' shirt I mentioned in a previous blog. I was gushing to my mom about how my boys bought it for me when my older son says, 'We didn't really buy it--Dad just made us write our names on the box.' Nice. This was the same son who came in to lie on top of me and give me a full body hug, complete with Happy Birthday wishes in the morning, so I suppose I'm good.
I didn't get any books for Christmas (except a couple I'd bought myself, only to have them nabbed by my husband for a couple easy gifts). So, I'm eagerly browsing Amazon, updating my Wish List, wondering which books should be put on my TBO (O=owned) list for 2009. Thoughts? Suggestions?
