Checking in from the nursing home

Sorry to have been away for so long guys, I have had a killer cold for almost a week now and am just now getting to the point where I *almost* feel human again. 
Tuesday was kind of a big day around here. It was my 40th birthday and I have to say it was far less painful than I thought it would be. The kids woke up super early that morning so they could give me my birthday presents. They were so excited I thought they were going to explode. They gave me a Schwinn which I am super excited about. If you remember just last week I was contemplating getting a bike for Christmas so this was a really big surprise. They also gave me a webkinz which totally cracked me up. My kids probably have about 60-70 webkinz already and I'm constantly playing games on their webkinz page so I guess they figured it was time for me to leave theirs alone, lol! I got a few other things as well which were awesome and surprising, but I won't bore you with all the details. Oh, and I also got not one, but two birthday cakes! 

 No, we did not use forty candles so keep your fire extinguisher jokes to yourself! 
Tuesday was also Kylie and Audrey's last day of school. I have to say that I was probably more ready for it than they were. I suppose you could say I've become disenchanted with the way certain things were being handled at the school and me being me I wrote a couple of letters to complain. Which of course meant that things got a little awkward right at the end, but it's all over and done with now. Anyway, I've always given the girls a gift on the first and last day of school and this year I bought Audrey and Kylie a webkinz (duh!) because you know I just didn't think they had quite enough already.
 Now Sophie is chomping at the bit to start school so that she can get a new webkinz herself.

Where have you been? Vacationing? I hope everything is okay and you are just chillin' in the summer sun! ...getting a little worried about you though.

I'm still around. This past few weeks have just been so crappy I haven't felt like blogging.
