I'm 44 today so I'm allowed to be crazy

I am foolishly thinking that I might be able to join Jen and 200plus other real bloggers for this seven posts in seven days thing.

Maybe I won't make it, but that doesn't seem like a good enough reason to not try.  I haven't gotten past last February in the month at a glance posts from last year and we're almost out of this February.  Maybe I'll use these 7 days to catch up on some of that.  Or maybe I'll fail at both this and that, we'll see...

It's my birthday today.  I am older than most (maybe all) of the 200plus bloggers doing this thing.  That's pretty crazy huh?

I really love facebook on my birthday.  I'm sticking fairly close to the computer so I can check birthday messages.  I think there's a word for that kind of behavior and it's probably not used as a compliment, but it's my birthday and I'll indulge in this kind of self involvement if I want to.

We spent almost all of Saturday cooking and setting up for, serving at, and cleaning up for our youth group's annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser.  I was going to go into all of the details this entailed, but then it would seem like indulging in even more self involvement, so consider your self spared.  I'm still throwing this much in to show that I don't always just sit around in my jammies eating junkfood and "playing" on the computer.

Singing birds are making a (nice) racket outside my open window right now.  When we first moved into this house in 2005, the neighborhood had been clear cut to build these cheaply made, but spacious houses like the one we live in.  Then each yard was given two tiny live oak trees.  We went years with almost no birds.  Then the mockingbirds came.  Little by little the trees grew and more birds joined the neighborhood.  Now it's a regular aviary.  I love it!

I'm currently drinking iced earl grey tea that tastes a little bit like cologne.  I kind of like it though.

I can't decide it I want to continue being nonproductive all day or if  I will clean the house, or move the pile of dirt that has been in our driveway for weeks (long story... it has to do with a garden and new sod and lots of work) or some combination of the above.  I'm sure it'll be a combination, but you'll have to tune in tomorrow to find out.

I have been terrible about posting and don't think I could possibly do 7 posts in 7 days. Every time I sit down to blog I feel like all I have to say is sharing a list of what I've been doing which seems very self-involved. You manage to do more than just say what you're doing though in your posts and I always enjoy reading even if I'm a bad commenter! :0)
