Today is my birthday! Woo hoo! I’m 43. It’s a prime number. I think that’s cool.
I have dropped some subtle and not-so-subtle hints at school that my birthday was coming. There was some confusion about the date, so one of my co-workers gave me some treats yesterday! Awesome! I shall count that as Birthday Celebrations – Day One.
Yesterday morning, one of the other teachers asked me if I was planning on going out for my birthday or something. I said my dearest wish was to go to bed early. Hehe… But today is a half day so we can have our monthly teacher meetings. Maybe we’ll be done soon enough that we could go out for some food or drink and still be done in time that I could be in bed by 8pm.
The kids always bring treats in on their birthdays, so I made chocolate chip cookies last night. I had a bit of trouble using an unfamiliar oven. The first batch was underdone. The second batch was overdone. The third isn’t really just right, but it’ll have to do. The kids won’t care. It’s free cookies! Woo hoo! It’s my birthday! Woo hoo!
