Please make room for me at the cool table.

Well, my birthday was yesterday. Apart from having to attend a funeral, it was a wonderful day. I woke up as a newly thirty-six-year-old feeling a bit sorry for myself that my hands are a little more veiny and I have lines appearing around my eyes, and those are only the places I will refer to online. But there is something about going to a funeral for a twenty-year-old that immediately snaps things back into perspective. How grateful it has made me that I can enjoy another year, crows feet and all.

My husband and I don't typically get each other big gifts for our birthdays, and we are fine with that. So I was shocked and awed when I got a MacBook for my bday!!! You have no idea how much I have drooled and coveted one of these. Couple that with our new AppleTV, and I feel just like I might actually be the slightest bit cool. I feel like I did in fifth grade when I got my first Trapper Keeper, or sixth grade when I got my first Limited Express shirt! AWESOME!

So now I just have to figure out how to make it work. My only problem is that right now I should be changing a diaper, putting a load of laundry in, nagging my husband, or throwing out V-day candy while my kids aren't looking. Instead I am trying to figure out if I know anyone I can ichat with. Just call me an iNerd!!
