Last Wednesday, November 12, was my birthday - my 50th. My co-workers didn't do the black birthday thing for me like I'd asked, thank goodness! Instead, one of my crazy coworkers did this - this is what I found when I walked into my room that day:
My co-worker made this for Halloween last year and used it in a display at his house. Honestly, when I saw this, I laughed so hard about it!
A group of ladies took me out to lunch that day and that was fun too. All the staff signed a birthday card for me, and one particular co-worker, a wood manufacturing instructor, told me that "at this age, if you were a tree, you could be harvested!" Okay, so I work with a crazy bunch of guys, but they are the best and so much fun, and I've known them for so long, that anything they say and do doesn't suprise me anymore!
I didn't do anything exciting for my birthday. I just don't get excited about birthdays anymore. But when people remember me that day, it is nice. I did have such a great time that day and really look forward to the "50's Decade" now.
