Well, it was a great day for me! Phone calls from friends and family. Some really cool gifts and lots of fun.
I didn’t have to work today which was an added bonus. So, I started off really slow and just stayed relaxed for the rest of the day. One of my favorite parts about birthdays is the calls from friends, family and this year B-Day messages on Facebook. I’m very fortunate to have the friends and family that I do. They are a great gift!
The kid in my really comes out on birthdays. I just want to do things that are fun and really fun.
Erica took me out to a great restaurant in Providence and then we went to see Cirque du Soleil, specifically their Alegria production. Alegria means jubilation in Spanish and let me tell you, this show was full of it. I can’t describe what I saw, but I didn’t know the human body was capable of some of things I saw tonight.
Cirque du Soleil was unbelievable and a perfect ending to a perfect day.
Thanks to everyone for calling, sending me messages or texting me. It made for a special time.
