Tomorrow is my birthday but I was presented with quite a treat upon my return home this evening…

Larry and Walker decided to inform the neighborhood (and passersby) that I am now part of what my HR friend calls “the protected class.” This broad gesture was the pinnacle of an already wonderful day — on my desk I found beautiful flowers from a friend’s garden and one of my staff orchestrated a surprise party complete with chocolate cake topped with STAR WARS action figures and sparkly pink candles (I was sent home with more cake which was even better tonight)!

Tomorrow I’m taking the day off and I plan on dropping off Walker, going to the gym, visiting my chiropractor and spending the rest of the day watching movies on OnDemand. I may even take a nap.

As long as I get lots of hugs from certain little and big boys, it will be a perfect day.
